Hunted with SNS in 2017. Hunt #2. Great time, great people. Tagged out on a 14"+ Antelope the first afternoon. And a really nice 4x4 Muley on the 3rd day. Everybody in camp was professional and fun to be around. Liked it so much that I am hunting with them again, this coming fall in the Grey's River area, for Elk. And possibly the year after that,,,?
10-17-19 updating my experience with SNS: had very bad - dangerous experience with SNS on a 2019 Mule Deer hunt. 2019 I was set up with a rookie guide who put his clients in dangerous situations, and was not experienced enough to be sent out as a solo guide. I did shoot descent deer. Ended up having to gut the deer myself, as the guide took off for 2 hours+ in search of game for the other client. Finish one job before you start another,,, maybe? The poor guide lacked basic skills in horsemanship, skinning and quartering of game. We found a decent deer, but the guide was in no way ready to guide on his own! The responsibility for this situation is squarely with the outfitter Sy. In discussing this with Sy and the camp manager, their attitude was, so what. Had a similar experience with SNS on 2018 elk hunt, in the Grays River. Was set up with a young rookie guide who seemed to boost his ego by getting us into dangerous situations. My hunting partner and I repeatedly demanded that the guide stop putting us in risky situations. Later we were told by the camp mgr that the week before this Grays river guide had to have a client air lifted out after the horse and client rolled down a steep embankment busting the client and horse up pretty bad. Sending him to the hospital. Screw me once shame on you, screw me twice shame on me. I do not recommend SNS outfitters!
