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?
He's bringing 2 extra guides to help pack all the stuff in for spike camp, help glass, and pack out any goats we get. He's full of crap saying he was going to guide us himself. It's a 2x1 hunt. He just said it to justify why he's not honoring the amount he quoted in the email. I'm sure the hunt and everything else will go fine. He just screwed up in his quote and doesn't want to admit it. I own a business and get it when it comes to profit margins, BUT I'm also a man of my word. So, if I mess up a quote (or my staff) for services, and it's in the customer's favor, I eat it. If it's in my favor, then I issue a refund for the amount. It's how I've done business for 25 years and why I have a great reputation in my business community. It's how I feel everyone should conduct business, but I'm more of the exception and not the rule these days. I'm old school, where I feel a handshake is all you should really need
