Re: Looking for family Outfitter.....
I do believe that there are families interested in that kind of vacation and people that would like to watch a show like that. The problem is, many outfitters are limited by their lodging and would prefer to have hunters at full price versus guests at a reduced fee. Also a shared lodge with a group of other hunters is not the best place for a family.
An outfitter that has private cabins and activities such as boating and fishing for the family and a bear hunt for the hunter would work. Baited bear hunts are an afternoon affair so the hunter could have most of the day with the family
A spring turkey hunt in conjunction with horseback riding, fishing, and sight seeing for the family would work too. Hunt gobblers in the am and do family stuff the rest of day.
I think these type of hunts versus "all day" hunts would work better and make it more of an overall family event.
The key factors would be private lodging, good weather and enough to keep the non-hunters busy and entertained.
