PSA - Beware, do NOT book a hunt through Gunn & Hook. (story below).

Saw a special on a Mule deer hunt with an outfitter in Wyoming back in January, so I purchased it through Gunn & Hook. Paid for the hunt, received the confirmation letter, spoke with the outfitter and get everything squared away with them for the tag and draw. I received a call from the outfitter in May and they said that they had not received the second half of the payment from Gunn & Hook. It took some effort getting a hold of them, but I was able to and after two more telephone calls, I was advised by them that the check had been cut and sent out that day. I did not hear back from the outfitter after telling them that update, so I thought all was well.
Fast forward to June and I get another call from the outfitter saying that they only received half of the payment. I emailed and called and finally got to the office manager who said that there was a mistake and one had not been sent out but she was doing so immediately and emailed back and said one had been sent out. Again, the outfitter did not say anything more about that check even though I spoke with them several more times to let them know I had drawn my tag, etc.
Last month, September 2016, I again get a call from the outfitter saying that they had not received the second half payment from Gunn & Hook. Now I am incredibly pissed, so I call and call and call Gunn & Hook and finally get a hold of the owner Kevin McConnell and tell him I am pissed off and tired of their BS and just want a refund. He says no problem. That was over 2 weeks ago and every time I am able to get a hold of him, he says the check has been cut and mailed to me, but I have yet to receive it.

Plain and simple, these people are trash and if the refund is not received by the end of next week, I will be taking them to small claims court, if for no other reason than to make their life more difficult as it is all about principle for me now.

BEWARE - do NOT book a hunt with these criminals as they will steal your money and not respond to your emails or calls and screw you over.

Mike - I appreciate it bud, but it does not look likely unfortunately. They will not even answer my calls now.

Sorry this is happening to you. Had a hunt go sideways this Summer, fortunately the outfitter took full blame for the ranch manager being an idiot and refunded us our money.

AustinHorn1 never take a hunting post to tMB. They can be brutal and usually are not very helpful.

I always hate hearing horror stories like this. As a law enforcement officer, I encourage you to report the matter to LE where G&H is based.

This also brings up potential lessons for us all. When able, always pay with a credit card. They can reverse charges and employ all sorts of consequences against such shady dealers.

Don't give up and hopefully this dude gets what he deserves.

Those guys are a joke. They added me to there site without permission and won't take me down after several attempts. Looks like I need to take legal action

That's flat our crazy. I'd make them provide me a photo of the check or carbon copy that was cut to you and make them send it first class and provide tracking info. Sorry to hear you lost out on a hunt.

Same here. They were advertising my hunts, taking payments for hunts without giving me dates and I had clients calling me who I didn't even know. And when they would pay me it would take weeks or even months. I eventually had to threaten to cancel the hunt if I was not paid. I could share other stories but its a waste of time.

It is hard to "make" anyone that wants to be a jerk to do anything unless you get law enforcement on your side. It is especially hard to make anyone do anything by long distance.

Heck I would think about going into their office and just sit there until a check is refunded to you or made out to the outfitter and you watch them drop it in an overnight envelope, but again that is if you have time to do that.

Sorry to hear about your hunt, and I appreciate your posting this so others can find it if they google Gunn & Hook before booking a trip with them. Hopefully they go away sometime soon, but in my experience, they just change names and do it all over again.

Is this them? https://www.facebook.com/GunnHook/?fref=ts
