Would Recommend: NO WAY IN H***!

Overall Impression: Terrible

We were on the early season back country hunt. When we arrived at camp the night before the hunt, Ralph could not be contacted. Eight of us slept on concrete floor, no beds. In five days of hunting only one person saw any Elk or Mule Deer. I saw 4 squirrels, one Pine Martin and some Grouse. We rode the horses up the mountain each morning and then walked to our "spot". We sat all day at the same "spot". We glassed and the "guide" bugle called about every hour. We usually quit around 2 in the afternoon so we could walk the horses down the mountain before dark. This was nothing more than a $5000 trail ride. Four of us rode out a day and 1/2 early because we had not seen any game or even any sign. We went to Yellowstone so we could see what an Elk looks like. The guides were very personable but not very skilled. The food was very good. Even though our tent zipper only closed half way the camp equipment was adequate. The scenery was spectacular but if you want to harvest an Elk or Mule Deer, GO SOME WHERE ELSE!!!!!!
