Just a warning to my fellow hunters - I booked a hunt in Craig Colorado in January of this year with Rich Botta of Rich's Hunting Adventures out of New York. I gave him a $2000.00 deposit. He cashed my check. After ten months with no response to e-mails, calls, or texts, two weeks before the hunt, he tells me he has no hunts in Craig. Says I can hunt in Mexico! No offer made to hunt in the U.S. as a replacement. I asked for my deposit back, he texted “lol”. He has kept my deposit.

We stand alone, though, in our ability to contemplate the loss of life, to understand its finality, to comprehend what’s forever gone. Out of respect and self-respect, those of us who hunt must apply this greater wisdom on behalf of the wild things we pursue. Zeke Pipher

I know of a local shop owner that does out of state hunts for clients, I'm just curious bow much research was done before sending 2000 dollars to someone In advance.

He cashed your check and hopefully you have backup paperwork as well. Get the authorities involved right away. That alone may change his tune.

If I saw "lol" come across the screen there is no telling what would happen to Dick. That's asking for a fight.

I'm guessing this guy is a booking agent and not an outfitter?

I would think that just refunding the money would be a better idea than having any type of bad publicity spread about your business, whether or not it's true...........if just 5 people a year decide not to use you because of the negative reports, you're gonna be out a little more than the 2g's.

Ok I smell a rat here.  These two are working together to get the word out about this guy.  Suddenly after a complaint post this guy appears and pushes his business.  Seems way too fishy to me.  How did the guy know someone was dissing him?  Take it all with a big grain of salt.  


Hunt from your heart and enjoy the outdoors for what it means to you. Don't let other dictate how you should do it and what you should shoot.

But if you ask on here, everyone will tell you how to hunt, including me. So take your chances

 

 

 

In the end we will not remember the words of our enemies, but the silence of our friends will be very loud.
