A member contacted me and asked how I would suggest finding honest, unbiased info about a guide. I've only used a guide once (for Farewell Bison), so I don't really feel qualified to answer the question. He has already talked to a number of references the guide provided, but would like a more complete picture. I suggested asking the guide for some references from unsuccessful hunters, as a hunter who didn't harvest an animal yet has good things to say about a guide would tell me a lot about the guide. Maybe I'm wrong, though, or missing some other ways to go about this. So, for those of you who have booked guided hunts, how do you go about making sure it is money well spent?
