Re: BE VERY CAREFUL!!
This is a very good post. In the process of booking hunts in the past, I have had outfitters suggest things to me that I knew were illegal or questionable at best.
To me that is an instant red flag. If they are willing to break the law with someone they don't even know, then they are likely to operate that way in other areas of their lives as well.
Going to other states or countries and knowingly breaking the law, or knowingly breaking the law anywhere is a pretty bad practice.
Outfitters like that are very good ones to avoid. There are way too many honest and hard working, legitimate outfitters out there to be dealing with folks like what the OP described.
If what they are suggesting is bad enough, they can be reported to Outfitter Associations that most states and Canadian Provinces have.
