Summary Remarks
Problems of Hunt:todd rice the owner of sonoran outfitters stole my $20,000. deposit for a desert sheep hunt. I booked the hunt a year in advance for the first week of December 2014. During the summer of 2014 I couldn't get todd to respond to my calls or emails.Finally at the end of the summer 2014 I got in touch with Todd. I asked todd some general questions , such as name of the ranch, cities permit, gun permit, date to arrive in Mexico... rnrnHe then stopped communicating with me until far after the hunt date came and went. He made up a ton of lies such as he was sorry that his mother died and he would be back on track. He refuses to make good on the $20 K I gave him, he refuses to return it and I have suggested if he can't take me sheep hunting maybe I could burn up the money with deer hunts.rnrnMy conclusion here is Todd Rice never had a ranch to hunt on and never purchased the sheep tag, saving him $20K and was going to most likely take me sheep hunting illegally until I asked to see a copy of the tag and get the ranch name, guides name ... He seems to have a history of doing this to others from what I have read now about him. rnrnMy recommendation is do not do any business with this guy He is a crook !
