Re: Outfitter references
Probably not - no better reference than someone spending their hard earned money. For example they all should belong to the state outfitters association or other professional organizations but membership alone does not mean they are a good outfitter. Now how do we know that the local warden is not a brother in law, relative or friend and even if not unless you knew of a violation and just had a bad hunt you wouldn't call the game warden or state commission or dnr to complain. If hunting with someone I had no experience with I want to talk to several and as they do in some sport scoring, I throw out the high and the low and go with the overall average consensus. To me if an outfitter won't provide client references he has something to hide. I never have a problem asking for an email list of all last years clients. The good ones with confidence in what they do will gladly provide the references.
