HUNTER: Larry McGlumphy
HUNT: 10-day, Combo Grizzly and Caribou
CONSULTANT: Kyle Hanson, Outdoors International
October 8 through September 7, 2022
- My hunt was successful.
- Equipment (i.e. tents, cooking stove, etc.) was very good.
- The customer service contact provided timely and excellent service; Meeting all needs.
- Food supplies was good.
- Guide was attentive and maintained his part of the camp.
- Game area good.
- Game bags were supplied.
- First-aid kit available.
- Guide recommended shooting an immature caribou bull on the 2nd day of the hunt. 3rd, 4th and 5th day, we saw five trophy bulls that was in shooting range.
- Due to warm temperatures the meat needed to be flown out. Weather was good, meat remained in camp for nine days. The meat began to smell.
- The outfitter relies on a charter plane service and does not have his own plane.
- The guide gets in too big of a hurry. He feels he must also shoot at bear even when the ‘experienced’ hunter told him that he like to shoot the animal and does not need any help.
- The guide did not watch his positioning of the muzzle. He shot adjacent to the hunter’s right ear and the muzzle blast was deafening. The hunter’s hearing was definitely affected.
- The guide waited too long to flesh the hides. The meat began to dry and making it too hard to remove. The lips was not fully turned. A toe bone was left in. The hunter alerted the expeditor at Fairbanks to complete the necessary fleshing at a cost of $150 dollars.
