    Hunting fool versus epicoutdoors

    For the last 2 years the huntin fool has been doing my out of state hunting apps for me. I see Jason carter has left and formed another company called epic outdoors. Should I stay or switch. Or does it really matter who does your out of state applications? I used bighorn permit service for about 5 years until the gentleman passed away and than I moved to the huntin fool.

    thanks

    Why do you need a service to do your applications? My buddy, who applies for about every animal in at least ten different states does them all himself and he's a pretty busy guy, but still finds time to do them himself. If you already are using HF and it ain't broke, why fix it?

    I agree, why pay someone to do it when its pretty easy to do yourself.

    I wonder, if you go with J. Carter do you get a set of "team radios"?

    Interesting that Epic Outdoors are five of the guys who left Huntin Fool including family (Jason Carter, Adam Bronson, Chris Petersen, Kurt Connley, John Petersen) and they are based in the same small town of Cedar City that Huntin Fool is based out of.

    Tim…it matters hugely who does your applications. Unless you are personally choosing the units to apply for, when you work with an application service, your application along with dozens of others of their clients are put in for the same hunt the application service determines. After playing the application game for 30 years, in my mind, that would not be a recipe for consistently drawing good tags.

    The research is the fun part! Maybe I should get into that service.

    I hear I feel your pain I'm new to western hunting and there is a ton on info to know before you select your picks for the year. I know picking states and units is fun for people that know it but it's very hard for a new western hunter. I contacted Cabelas but gave up after there sales pitch. Very much looking forward to 2014 season ..
