Would You Recommend This Hunt to a Friend?yes
Why?First, Bruce and his family are exceptional outfitters and have hunted this area for 40 years. They know game movements and work hard on behalf of their hunters. Lodging is first class (they recently finished construction of the lodge) and all their equipment is new and high quality. Another huge advantage is that they run a small operation, so a cat hunter will likely have them exclusively. I cannot recommend them too highly for cougar, bobcat or a combination hunt.
