I too hunted with Mike a few years back when he was offering his "introductory" pricing. It was a heck of a deal, I asked him why his prices went up so much and he said it wasn't him but his lease fees raising. Oh well some of the best sheep hunting for aoudad in west Texas IMO.
Still though he has tons of 30" plus sheep on his site and his most expensive hunt is still under $3K no hidden fees, no BS type of guy.
I may go on his CDP hunt early next year, its only $1750 and the most affordable free range hunt in west Texas I could find.
