Re: Do you ever go on outfitted hunts?

I would love to if I could come up with the extra cash it seems that every time I start saving I end up buying a new toy. Besides I would have to find a place that would have something for the wife and kids to do in the area while I was hunting.

Re: Do you ever go on outfitted hunts?

I have to agree with Bigbuck and Jmason (love your whiskey by the by). At this point in my life it would be entirely selfish of me to go on an outfitted hunt. Granted, if "she who must be obeyed" let me trot off to New Zealand with the boys for a red stag hunt......

More than one poll answer is possible in this poll.
I have been on 5 guided hunts and feel that they were for the most part very worthwhile
and enjoyable.

On 2 of the hunts I had to take the lead in the hunt because the guide did not care if any
of us killed anything or even had a good hunt.

These two Guided hunts were not researched very good (A Huge Mistake) one was put
together by a friend and the other was the 1st place prizes at the Texas state broad head
championship that I was ''Lucky" enough to win.

The other 3 were great and the guide service was outstanding even though I had to settle
for a mule deer instead of an ELK on two of the hunts.

And yes I will go on more guided hunts.

It is a good way to learn how ,If you are new to this kind of hunt (Like ELK).
Also a good way to learn an area or state.
And it helps you to learn what gear to carry and what not to.

Out of all of this I came to the conclusion that:
1 = you should do a lot of research before you talk to the outfitter.
2 = Get references and talk to some of them to get a feel for the type of outfitter he is (Not
just a good old boy).
3 = Communicate well with the outfitter and express your wants and expectations of the hunt.
4 = And if the Hunt does not appear to be headed in the right direction ,REDIRECT IT !!! It's
your money.
5 = And by all means don't demand a guaranteed kill because they cannot do that but they
should try very hard to make your hunt a success .

SO if the outfitter tries very hard and you have a great hunt (Kill or not) tip them accordingly
and it will give you a lot of good memories.

Re: Do you ever go on outfitted hunts?

Went on my first outfitted hunt in the 2008 season.
The outfitter went over and beyond trying to put myself and newphew on animals.
Ended up taking a nice mule deer and passed on a small 4x5 elk which ended up being a mistake on my part.
In all it was most enjoyable and I will never forget it.
