Okay so when your guide is the ranch owner. Do ya'll still tip the owner of the ranch/outfitter as much as you would a contracted guide?

Yep. Tip for the service received, not his position in the hierarchy.

Exactly.
I have guided at a ranch were the owner seems to be neglected in the "guide" position. I know that he doesn't care, and he is more than happy to get the customer a good animal. I always thought it would be cool if someone slipped him a few extra bills.

I think you should always tip especially if you think you will ever be going back! They will remember if you tip well and take care of you one of the guides I go with actually rearranged the schedule so he could take me and a few others and placed who he was originally guiding with another guide. They will also try harder to have a successful hunt

Along those lines, if you are invited to go on a hunt and it is just run by a friends vendor how do you handle that? The vendor invites him to come hunt on the property he leases (corporate style) he feeds you, takes and picks you up from blinds, gives you the green light to take as many does as you want and hopes you get a trophy buck. It is all bowhunting and large with not many invites but should the invited guest tip or is it just simply business relations?

If the guide treats me right and works hard, he is getting a tip from me, regardless of the fact it's a corporate invite. Who is paying for the hunt is not relevant to me when it comes to tipping.

If somebody invites me out to their lease to hunt, I'm not tipping them. I'll thank them profusely, but I don't see any reason to tip in that situation.

I've just always heard the main reason you tup guides is because they don't make a whole lot of money and rely on tips. However, when ranch owner guides you all the money goes straight in his pocket.

Yes if someone (friend) invites me to hunt at their lease I also do not tip. I do however offer to buy some feed for the feeders.

So if you went to a restaurant where the owner also waited tables would you not tip then?

It's a little different when your forking over thousands of dollars + paying 150 a night lodging and a 200 a day guide fee. Which is all going in his pocket. Like I said one of the biggest arguments why you tip a guide is because they don't make a hole lot of money and all the money goes to the owner and the guides sometimes rely on a tip.

Both owners foot 100% of the bills and expenses also. 100% of that money you pay both of them does not go into their pockets.
