I have traveled around the world and have hunted with dozens of hunting outfitters. Some good, some not so good. Hal and Janet and the crew that is assembled at Salmon River Bend Outfitters is the best of the best.

They make the trip flawless from the planning stages, to the traveling stages, to the hunting stages, and go beyond to ensure a flawless and successful trip.

The hunting is second to none and the guides at Salmon River Bend Outfitters know these animals and how to get their clients in the right positions to make the hunt a success.

I would travel back and hunt with them again without any concern, and hope to do so in the future.
