    Beware of Rick Wemple outfitting in Montana

    My brother and I had a combo antelope/ mule deer hunt booked with him in 2011. After the license changes for guides we weren't drawn. We asked for our $500 deposit back, but only received worthless checks. After about 6 months of arguing with him we finally received our $ after my brother contacted the guide association. Anyone who books a hunt with him beware!

    Just providing information. I found this forum 3 days ago. If you don't believe me book a hunt with him. It doesn't matter to me. If I can help someone to not go thru what we went thru I think its worth the time.

    There comes a point in a mans life where forgiveness needs to be offered, or let it go. You never know where a man stands as to why he couldn't refund you proper. Not condoning bad business by any means, but you never know unless your that guy. Sounds like he was able to square you away finally......

    you have to let that chip go brother....or let it fester into an angry mob of bitterness and cancer inside....

    Its 2014 for cryin out loud.....lets look forward before we crash into life again.
    I hunt because........

    I thought MT has had leftover deer and elk tags every year since doing away with the outfitter tags? I wasnt aware they ever had outfitter tags for antelope.

    ***He said he booked a hunt with the guy and is not talking about any outfitter tags in his comments. I'm not sure whether there were ever outfitter tags for antelope, but I don't think so. They obvously went through the draw process and didn't get drawn for one or both of the animals. I believe Wemple hunts over on the east side of the state where they lost a lot of antelope and deer to bad weather, as well as EHD, and the recovery will take a few more years even if the weather is decent.

    I thought outfitter tags were just for deer and elk. I can understand not drawing antelope. I know some units like 700 went from 2-1 drawing odds to 5+-1 odds aroung that time. I hunted 700 a few years ago for antelope and was going to go again but decided it wasnt worth it with the current situation and drawing odds there. But I dont understand how anyone could not draw a deer tag after they raised the prices and did away with the outfitter tags because there have been tags leftover after the drawing every year since the changes.
