This will be my first time going on a guided hunt. There will be 4 of us. What is the typical amount to pay the cook and the guide for tips? This is not a trophy hunt. Not sure where to post this...

I generally tip repairmen twenty dollars. Just don't do like Beaver and expect change from a C note.

10% to start and up from there depending on quality of service.

I always decide in the individual. If they give crap service they don't get much or anything. You will know what right. Just rennet a lot of guides make their money from tips. Especially the ones who don't own the place. Tip how you would want to be tipped. Say he is with you for 3 days. Does all the gutting skinning and quartering. 100 bucks doesn't work out to much hourly! Or daily. Pretty sure you will know what's right. Lots of diff circumstances involved.

I've always wondered this as well.....whether it's a fishing trip or hunting. I tip servers but they work on tips (and I don't know any guides personally so not sure if the same applies to them) but isn't the service of the guide part of the deal? (Tongue in cheek playing the devil's advocate)

I'm interested in hearing opinions.

I usually offer a cash tip but..... I would rather buy them something they are going to use. 20% if the do a good job.

When I was guiding, cash was nice and appreciated. But I still carry a Bowie knife that was a tip.. Just sayin there are other options, if they earn it!
