I tried to get a good friend of mine to go on several hunts with me and

he never would go.

He had to save his money.

He died last month at 69yr.

I have lost five friends to cancer since I was diagnosed 9yr ago.

I sure am not sorry I spent money I didn't have to go, many times by myself.


Great hunt and a nice bull Stan.

I pride myself in being able to make decisions with little information.

Kenny.., in 1999 I was single, making good money and my Dad and I bit the bullet and ponied up for a guided hunt, right next to Yellowstone. We both killed decent bulls, mine was like Stan's. Dad died in '08 at only 56. Had we waited, he'd have never made it. Go while you can!

Default Thanks

Thanks guys for all the kind words,
I've not been on many guided hunts, so I don't have much for comparison, but this is one I'll remember. I thought George and his guys had a comfortable camp and did very close to anything we asked, I may be wrong but I'm afraid it will change some. I did actually meet the new owners at the SCI show last week and they seemed like good people. They have already raised the price of each hunt by $800, putting them closer in line with some of the private land hunts. This is public land and we did encounter quite a few other hunters. We were thinking about applying for points to try to pull a deer tag, normally a three year process. They have some very good sized mule deer out there. Not sure if that will happen now or not.
It was good times, we met some nice people, and have memories to keep of time spent with close family. Was already dreaming of doing this hopefully someday with my son ( 10 year old now) if he keeps hunting.
