Weather can and will vary from freezing cold temperatures to sunny, warm 50 degree days. It is imperative that hunters dress in layers to adjust to the changing temperatures. Rain gear is also recommended as rain and/or snow is not uncommon when hunting in the high country. One day may be 60 degrees and sunny and the next might be blizzard conditions.
A 30 caliber rifle is our first choice, but it is more important that you are familiar with the rifle that you bring than have it be a certain caliber. Bring the rifle that you are most comfortable shooting. Be prepared to shoot at distances up to 500 yards.
The industry standard tip for a hunting guide is about 15% of the hunt price. Your tip is a personal choice and can be adjusted according to your personal satisfaction with your hunt. Please keep in mind, you are hunting wild animals and your guide is only responsible for creating opportunity at harvest.
Being a hunting guide is a seasonal position that often requires some sacrifice. The tips that a guide receives during the season are often an integral part of being able to continue in the industry. Cooks and other staff usually get tipped less. If you think that someone has gone above and beyond to make your stay comfortable and enjoyable, a tip is greatly appreciated.
The amount of time that you will spend on your horse can vary from 30 minutes or less morning and evening to upwards of 2 hours. Our hunting area varies and we hunt as much of it as possible to provide the best opportunities for our clients. If you are able to spend some time horseback prior to your arrival, you may be more comfortable. Each year we take clients that have not ridden much before, if at all....they have all lived to tell about it.
You will get up very early in the morning, well before daylight. Your guide will have horses caught and saddled to trailer to one of the many trailheads based on our scouting. Continental breakfast (to-go) foods and coffee will be available at the bunkhouse. We ride anywhere from 30 minutes to 2 hours to get to where we are going to hunt for the day. Most of the day will be spent glassing. We use the horses to move from vantage point to vantage point throughout the day. Sometimes we tie up the horses in the morning and the rest of the day is spent on foot hiking. We hunt from daylight till dark most days. A hot family style meal will be waiting for you at the bunkhouse at the end of your day.
