What was talked about or agreed upon before the hunt?


It's not how you fall, It's how you get up.

Then I would think you would still pay the management fee. That's why the guide was with you. To place you on the correct deer.

It's his responsibility to do his job. If a mechanic screws up your truck, it's on him.


If you want some friendly advice, get a haircut and take a bath. You wouldn't get hassled so much.

Im Guessing you went on a management hunt and were told to shoot a certain "management" deer. After it was shot it ended up scoring what they said was a trophy buck andcwanted to charge the trophy fee or so many dollars per inch?

You mind telling us the story?

That sucks bud. I'm sure many here would like to hear the story and the outfitter. On a side note congrats on your buck. I'm sure it's bitter sweet.

I asked about shooting a management "$2000" deer before I came to hunt , as stated above both outfitter and guide knew what I was looking for. Anyways deer scores 141" and I'm told by guide owner says I'm still responsible by text .he seen the deer and left to guide someone with deeper pockets then me shooting multiple bucks . Was told I owed $3500 didn't even have that on me , guide said he would "take care of the rest " bullshat . Drove 22 hours for this crap!

Wtf is the point of the guide if they tell you to shoot X deer as a management deer then want to charge you for a more expensive deer because they can't judge well?

The way my buddy works it on his place always favors the hunter. If they estimate low, you only pay for what they estimated it to be. If they estimate high, you only pay for what the deer actually measures. The price is agreed upon in advance based on what he believes the deer to score and he doesn't charge the hunter for his misstep.

I would think the guide would be able to recognize the "shooters" on the ranch.

If you have a beef with one of the outfitters here, state it plainly and directly. Hedging around the subject reduces your credibility, especially with only 6 posts.

PM Me with outfitters name. You arenít getting sued if thatís the whole story

If Guide messes up, outfitter eats it.

It would help other hunters to know so more problems wont occur. This forum can be really helpful and its full of great people. Welcome to forum! Hope all this gets resolved somehow. Don't worry about the post count, everyone starts at 1!

Iíve always wondered about this. I know whatís right, but I donít know how the guide feels about it. I always figured I would clear things up, before booking a hunt, and not book if they expect me to be responsible for it. If I ever book a hunt like that, and they go back on their word, it wonít matter. Theyíre going to eat it, either way.
