Re: Do you ever go on outfitted hunts?

Yes and plan on many more. Getting away from the public land. You see a lot more game and just a ton of fun. Well its just incredible. I still hunt a lot of public land as well but the main reason is the land / pressure. We also have started leasing property. ITS NOT as expensive as most people let on to be. You can lease some great hunting property for @ 500.00 a person if you dig hard enough.

Re: Do you ever go on outfitted hunts?

I do every year. However I also get some AWESOME landowner tags in NM for pronghorn, big bear and elk. If anyone is ever wanting to do some LRH for either please let me know as I can get some great tags on huge ranches at an affordable price. I used to guide out there so I have great contacts for hunting.

Re: Do you ever go on outfitted hunts?

Sorry If I offend you but seriously, if you where on a pack-in trip and didn't see any animals that's your fault. No one else to blame. Second, I have never heard of any of that crap happening. However trophy fees are one thing but taking someones trophy??? Not happening.

You also talk as if guides are only needed for newcomers? Well I've hunted 33 countries killing 152 species (pre-wife) I just think what you are saying is false.

I have had some great experiences because I do the research on all of my hunts. Don't let your friends do your research. The truth with optics and hunts...only a rich man can afford to be cheap.

Seriously, why is it a hair brained idea to pay for a hunt? I really don't understand that. You pay for guns, you pay for tags, clothing, mounts. I guess some peoples ego allows them to believe that they should be entitled to hunt for free. Not saying that all hunting should be with a guide but this is 2011 and nothing is for free. Time value money...your $2000.00 unguided hunt cost you a lot more.

This was not a guided hunt, just an outfitters drop camp hunt. I respect guides and how difficult thier job is,(hunting with all comers is something i could not do) but I will say when I shoot or dont, and at what i want to shoot. And NO IM NOT going to pay an extra $1000.00 per point for the one you have tied to the tree. Im also gonna keep my meat and horns Especially if its a record.NO I wont settle for a replica makebelive set you will have made for me so you can show off MY real horns at YOUR lodge.I wasted 5 years worth of poinst for that tag and almost $2000.00! When i couldve just hunted around home and ''settled'' for another raghorn bull.
$2000.00 will buy a nice rifle next time i have a hair brained idea like paying to hunt!
Oh well, at least i got to see some new country that i wouldnt have otherwise.

I have been on a caribou hunt in 2003, and a whitetail deer hunt in 2010. I use a wheelchair, so I had to make sure that the outfitters were willing to adapt the hunting methods for me. I shot a 310" caribou bull, and a 127" whitetail on those hunts.

Re: Do you ever go on outfitted hunts?

Just got back from a great Dove hunting trip to Argentina with La Dormida Lodge, it was awesome. I would recommend it to anyone. It is pretty pricey, but the birds never stop flying. I am hoping to draw a NM Ibex tag this season. If I do I would be interested in any advice for an outfitter seeing as it is a once-in-a-lifetime draw tag. Any suggestions?

Re: Do you ever go on outfitted hunts?

I will be hunting with Circle KBL Outfitters at the end of this month in Idaho for Black Bear. I actually won the hunt through this site way back in fall of 2009! Can't wait. Hoping to swing down through Casper on the way back through and shoot some pdogs with my brother. Should be a good time, except for the dang gas prices!
