Airline Comments: We booked a non-stop flight a year in advance which was cancelled. we flew from Newark via Toronto. We had over a 2 hour layover which was needed in order to register the guns. The airline "lost" the box with our trophies on the way back in spite of being a non stop flight. Check-in personnel in Calgary were not familiar with protocol for checking firearms; they did not offer the declaration until I asked for it. One unfortunate hunter (not in my group) was turned around at TSA and had to go back to check in. I'm not sure if he made his flight.

SUMMARY REMARKS
Problems of Hunt:
Highlights of Hunt: This was a fun and challenging hunt. Tyson and his crew will bend over backwards to make sure you are having a good time. Tyson "gets it;" he knows that although it is a hunting trip, it is a vacation and entertainment for the client. In the field, Tyson and Paul did everything possible to try to get their clients a quality experience. Our hunt took place in hilly area with a lot of up and down hiking. 10 inches of snow on day 2 made this even more strenuous. I took advantage of Paul's excellent horses to get back in the woods. I took a heavy boned 4x4 that scored around 180 and weight around 350 lbs. We used horses to pack it out. My shot was 350 yds, which is the minimum you should be prepared to shoot on this hunt. This was the only "reasonable" buck I had a reasonable opportunity to shoot. My wife shot a 160 class 4x4 on the last day with a 300 yd shot. The third member of our party had 3 or 4 opportunities and passed on 2 and missed on 2. He still had a great time and wants to return.
Equipment Recommendations: Be prepared to shoot long shots off packs.
Would You Recommend This Hunt to a Friend? yes

ADDITIONAL HUNTER COMMENTS AND/OR OUTFITTER/BOOKING AGENT REBUTTAL
Tyson felt we saw less bucks than usual for the hunt. The unusual heavy snow and unusual cold may have been a factor. We faced minus 18F one morning. One bonus of this hunt is the other game we were able to see. I saw at least 20 moose, herds of elk, a coyote chasing a doe, and lots of whitetail. One member of our group was able to photograph a cougar and its cubs playing in the snow.
