Re: A Question for all Hunters
I also have not been on a guided hunt, but here are a few things (in addidtion to the other items listed by everyone else).
1. Access to a firing range that is at least 100 yards. After flying several thousand miles, I would want to make sure my firearm is still on target.
2. To meet with the guide before heading out into the field so he/she could explain the plan of attack, the lay of the land, and any other thing that may be pertinent to the hunt and the safety of everyone involved.
3. The guide should also explain the size or age of animal that we are seeking, ie number of points, length of antlers/horns, etc - so both of us are on the same page.
4. Definately no hidden costs!
5. The guides should be well versed in back county first aid and survival - to be prepared to use it and have the supplies available to do so (not saying that I'm accident prone or anything! [img]images/icons/shocked.gif[/img] ).
I keep nature balanced - I hunt everything!
