Summary Remarks
Problems of Hunt:- Hunt generally had no problems. rnrn- However at this price outfitter needs to sometimes take small issues into account which could cause negative emotions e.g. Alcoholic drinks not included in daily rates, high prices for these. This was annoying and a rip off. Generally beer and normal beverages should be included.rn- No hunting shirts included, we see this as a nice memory, normally included by outfitter. rnrn- curio shop prices very overpriced
Highlights of Hunt:Great stalking, very professional crew, good equipment, awesome location, very classy and upscale lodge, probably can't get any better, great food. Lodge has a spectacular sundowner location on mountain, as well as a very nice hot spring area
