Review Information

Hunter: Bill Pietsch



Would Recommend: Possibly

Overall Impression: Had a good time but wasn't what I was led to believe it would be.

I went on this hunt with the intention of trying to take my first elk (a cow.) I mentioned this to the outfitter and was assured that the ranch had lots of elk. During the 5 day hunt in early October there were absolutly NO elk to be seen on the ranch. Of course this sort of thing can happen on a fair-chase hunt but in this instance I feel that the pre-season scouting was not very well done. What little elk sign that remained was several weeks old. IMHO, the outfitter should have known and informed me that there were no elk presen. I did take a 2 point mule deer buck and saw a few bigger bucks. The outfitter and guide were great folks and I don't think they willingly defrauded me BUT I'm not all that happy.
