ADDITIONAL HUNTER COMMENTS AND/OR OUTFITTER/BOOKING AGENT REBUTTAL
This is my third time with Dave Beranek of Packhorse Creek Outfitters and each time was great. They work hard to help all hunters succeed in taking their game. They are a very reliable group of guys. We had cabin accommodations which were great considering that bad weather was involved. The cabins were nice and comfortable. The food was very good the whole time. Two guides, Jay Hebert and Tyson Musil came to help with retrieval when we thought it might be difficult. The country is beautiful and there is a lot of game. We were observing goats and sheep every day and a few elk, moose and deer too. I'm trying to figure out what to hunt in the future with Packhorse Creek Outfitters. Next time I might let Jay or Tyson guide me.
