Antelope - Availability: Abundant - Trophy Size:
Deer, Whitetail - Availability: Abundant - Trophy Size:
Game Sought But Not Taken:
Game Condition Comments: My girlfriend and I went out to Big Buck Outfitters on a custom hunt. I hunted mule deer trophy and she was on a doe only hunt. I filled my tag by 8:30 the first morning for the buck. She had also filled her antelope and mule deer doe tag by the same time that morning. We went out and bought more doe tags (antelope and whitetail) and filled them all within 2 1/2 hours that afternoon. In all, we took 8 animals that first day. The abundance of wildlife was incredible and the experience was incredible, to say the least. We didn't know what to expect going out, but definitely had a GREAT time and will be returning in the future.


SERVICE RATINGS (excellent, good, fair or poor)
Quality of Outfit: Excellent Guide/PH Ability: Excellent
Condition of Camp: Excellent Condition of Equipment: Good
Quality of Food: Excellent Trophy Care: Excellent

COSTS
Hunting Fees: For trophy buck $4,500 and $150 a day for doe hunt. Amount: $0
Trophy Fees: Amount: $0
Permits/Licenses: Amount: $0
Commercial Airfares: Amount: $0
Charter Airfares: Amount: $0
Other Costs: Amount: $0
Total: $0


SUMMARY REMARKS
Problems of Hunt: We experienced no problems, whatsoever. Other people in camp struggled with their shots, but the guides would continue to put them on animals and give them additional opportunities. Every effort was given to people to get their tags filled. The biggest thing to do is to be honest about a shot you are comfortable making to your guide. If you say you are comfortable shooting 400 yds, make sure that you can make that shot, otherwise be honest. They will get you in closer if necessary, but need to know that you want a shorter shot. We were honest, but saw others in camp struggling because they were trying the longer shots, thinking they could make them.
Highlights of Hunt: The entire experience was well beyond our expectations. We both had to stalk, and getting past the other game to get the shot on the animal was a new experience. The highlight would probably be the celebration with the guides and recounting the stories back at camp.
Equipment Recommendations: If you are flying, with all the extra baggage fees for airlines these days, determine what you are going to do with the meat (donate, etc) before heading out, and how much it will cost with each option. We drove, so we brought coolers with us, but there were many others in camp that were not prepared.
Would You Recommend This Hunt to a Friend? Yes
Why? We hope to take some friends and family with us in the future. The experience of seeing so many animals is something you can't experience back home. It's like hunting season back home times ten in intensity and enjoyment.
