Outfitter fees

Got a question about why outfitters charge more for a rifle hunt than they do for an archery hunt.

Heres an example from a South Dakota outfitter
3 day rifle...3750.00
4 day rifle...4150.00
5 day archery...3650.00

For the life of me I dont understand this at all.The archery hunt is a day or 2 longer which means 2 more days of meals,lodging.guides,etc but its the cheapest one there and 500.00 less than the 4 day rifle hunt.

If I could find an outfitter that charged the same across the board Id be more inclined to deal with him.

Re: Outfitter fees

1.Success rate for archery is much lower
2.there are more rifle hunters than archery hunters
3.most of the time archery season is longer and tags are easier to get
4.rifle season are much shorter making available spaces limited.
