What a great trip!! Shawn and Capri picked us up at the Kalispell airport and it was smooth sailing from there. The first night we stayed in multiple cabins right next to Glacier National Park. These cabins would be a great base camp for a snowmobile trip in the winter. Capri gave a excellent presentation on the history of Montana. The next day we went into the woods with Shawn and Logan as our guides and Capri our cook (GREAT FOOD). For the next couple of days we took day rides out from base camp. Shawn is very flexible to do whatever you want. That means you look at a distant peak and say I want to go over there or you want to go catch some fish you can do either with easy. Shawn's knowledge of the land is fantastic. The camp site we stayed at was great. It was located right on the river so you can fish in camp if you want. The tents we stayed in had wood burning heaters if you need them. All together is was a fantastic trip that I would recommend to anyone.
I went Elk hunting with a friend Mike Fitzpatrick in 1995; our mistake was booking with Snowy Springs Outfitters. They had no idea where the elk were and we only saw a few cows 600 to 700 yards away running across the top of the mountain.
Scott our guide stole my airline ticket and elk hunting book that I left in his Suburban for safe keeping. He rode back ahead of us after our unsuccessful hunt and stole my property out of his locked vehicle. I would never reccomend these people for anything, I hope they have changed. The positive point is the country was beautiful and the food was great, but for $3000.00 dollars I exspect much more. We are from Cedar Rapids, Ia.
Shawn and Capri did an awesome job. Excellent game quantity and quality! Exceptional guides, they worked as hard as you were willing to, to try and bag you a trophy. The guides were also very knowledgable of the area and where the game may possibly be. This is a true back country hunt, and is not for the out of shape!! Out of five hunters we bagged four mule deer and three, trophy class elk! Not to mention all of the muleys were very impressive. Would not ever dream of booking a hunt with another outfitter. Make sure you like riding horses if you plan on going. Food was excellent and always ready and hot when you returned from a long days hunt. Do yourself a favor and don't take a hunt with any other outfitter, these guys are the ones to go with. They are a little more pricey than other outfitters, but worth every penny!
From the time we talked to Shawn and Capri Little setting up this trip, to the time they dropped us off at the airport, the experience was unbelievable. These guys know how to run an outfitters, the private camp ground, the fishing and the camp fire stories and Angie's unbelievable cooking will make me come back year over year.
I have been on many hunting trips with great guides, but Snowy Springs Outfitters is the best ever.
