A guided hunt is a team effort. The client helps finance the operation, and the guide or outfitter provides logistical support and an intimate knowledge of the game, the area, and any regulations. Under the best circumstances, a guided hunt works out well for both parties. Sometimes the hunt becomes a yearly event. And in the best cases, that once-in-a-lifetime hunt produces a once-in-a-lifetime animal, and the partnership turns into lasting friendship.
