Thanks ..... I vented on my very bad experience a few years back. Bottom line is they basically use their clients to scout and then either they or their children end up shooting the good stuff later . Their trophy board is mostly family members and guides....check it out. My experience is good outfitters don't change their name unless it has a bad rep.
Maybe before you go out of your way to run down someone's outfitter business maybe you should get your facts straight! The owner of Black Mountain Outfitters in Battle Mtn. decided to close his business, and go in a different direction. I hunted with them there last 4 years in operation. My father hunted with then the last five. We always received complete respect, and a good hunt from the owner of Black Mountain. Team CCH Outfitters is a complete different operation. A few of the members of Team CCH sub guided for the owner of Black Mountain, and decided to open there own guide service when Black Mountain closed.
In fact, in 2015 I was guided by two of the member of Team CCH, while hunting with Black Mountain for a late season deer hunt in area 7. I killed my second best mule deer while on that hunt. They had been scouting the area for weeks prior to the hunt, and new the area very well. New the bucks, and the patterns of them. I received nothing but respect, and a great hunt from my guides on that hunt. They wanted us to have every opportunity to harvest a great deer. Both gentlemen where complete professionals, and I would hunt with them again. And would recommend them to anyone. Trust me I have been on some poorly represented hunts by outfitters, but Black Mountain wasn't one of them. Nor, do I think you would receive that type of service from Team CCH.
If you don't mind me asking who was your guide on your hunt, and why do you feel you receive a poor hunt? Did you fill your tag on the hunt? Did you only hunt with Black Mountain once? And, lastly did you talk with the owner of Black Mountain about your experience, good or bad? The owner of Black Mountain was a pretty fair person, I think he would have done what he could to see that you had a good hunt!
I would really like to hear your reply to my questions.
Bruce3006 you are correct in stating my pictures are mostly of my kids and family for the simple fact that I have no rights to the pictures of black mountain outfitters. I as well as my son we’re sub guides for black mountain outfitters when mike shut his operation down we started our own so as far as the name change that is incorrect so before you start bashing us get your facts straight!!! I’m sorry you had a bad experience with black mountain as Ivan said you should of talked to the owner. I can assure you it would of been handled. We are a new outfitter and it’s not a name change. As far as they used there clients are used for scouting is BS. My kids have shot great animals in this state but to say my kids or family were used as scouting is BS so anytime you wanna talk to me and/or get your facts straight or about any of my guides please feel free to contact me at anytime!! I’m more than willing to have a open chat we pride ourselves on our clients and we work super hard at what we do if anything my kids and family sometimes have to take a backseat so I’m super sorry you didn’t get to kill that 40 inch 300 inch mule deer you thought we all had tied to a tree for you but like I said call me anytime!!!
Your sarcastic response in your last two lines shows clearly what you think about you think "your clients" expect. As far as your picture comment that is BS. One can look at any outfitters web page and see hundreds of successful hunters photos that are not just family members so your "no rights" comment is BS. I gave my opinion about a bad experience with an outfitter a few years ago and after over thirty five years of hunting with countless outfitters and their guides I think I know the difference between a great outfitter and a mediocre one . As far as I was concerned I gave my opinion and people can make up their own minds. However, in my opinion your recent sarcastic response shows me nothing but contempt for the "paying client" and their unrealistic expectations. As they say . Me thanks you protest too much
Black mountain outfitters pictures are not mine I guided for them for years and I’m not gonna use there pictures for my website. I know what guide you’re referring to by reading your post but that’s one guide my outfitters business does not reflect that guide nor does he work for us. But I find it odd the only thing you’ve brought up is he used you for scouting which is still bs. And as far as private land that is also bs he didn’t have any so quit associating my name with black mountain outfitters it has nothing to do with them
