Overall Impression: poor

I talked to Larry twice and asked for references and he randomly gave me the SAME people both times. One person turned out to be his guide that should have tipped me off.He promised me that I would not see any other hunters since we were so far back but they were all over the place every day actually racing us up the mountain one day. The guides that I had turned out to be two brothers that were getting a free hunt if they took us out hunting. They drop you off in the morning and go off hunting, thatÂ’s not my definition of a guide. I was also told that they would book ten hunters in camp but it turned out to be Seventeen when I arrived. We hunted in three spots, the valley behind the cabin has a stream and a main horse trail that you hunt off of. So if an Elk is coming in a hunter on horse back just happens along at the same time (and this happened) they spook the Elk. I could go into more details But I thing this place is a waste of money.
