And that's 8-12% of the cost of the hunt not the total with tags and hunting fees ?The outfitter gets all the money for the hunt from you, so don't tip the outfitter. I generally give the guide 10% (industry average is 8-12%). I've given the cook $40-50 in the past......it's a nice gesture since they don't expect anything
Yes, you are correct.And that's 8-12% of the cost of the hunt not the total with tags and hunting fees ?
My thought is if he pulls this before the hunt what rules will he try to change when you arrive? Was the initial price for 2 on 1 guiding? Is the hunt now a 1 on 1 guided hunt if is so the extra expense might be worth it? Why is he bringing 2 extra guides if he was planning on guiding you both by himself, the numbers don`t add up that will be 3 guides in camp?But he should of been plain in his contract I would of thought?I found in the contract for the hunt the cost was now $1,000 more than what we were quoted. I went back and found the email the outfitter sent my buddy and it stated "the price of the hunt is "x", bring a buddy along and it goes down to "z". Long story short, the outfitter won't honor what he stated in the email. Starting saying that price only covered him guiding us and not the 2 other guides he's bringing along. Needless to say, I'm ****ed. This is probably a once in a lifetime hunt for my friend and the $1,000 has more of an effect on my friend than it does me. For me, this is all about being a man of your word and principle.
