Yes, believe it or not, Jackmaster has some friends! He's a good man and a good friend, go easy on him. And he does know a lot of info on the Elk in that area, he's lived out there watching them Elk for 20 years.

I've been recommended by someone for a hunt with Shane Barbour. With that said, I've tried to weed through the posts here and find fact vs fiction. I would appreciate  if people here could post factual info to help me make a decision on what I should do, as if you're in a court of law. I've been through a hunt that the outfitter screwed us over and it just ruins everything. I dont want that to happen again. I did a Google search and it brought me here, so I hope I can count on you to help me with this decision. Thank you and good luck out there!

This will be interesting, from what I've read I'd spend my money elsewhere. Unless you just want to kill a bull over apples in a farmers field, not saying that there is anything illegal or ethically wrong with that.  If that works for you that's fine, but I think he charges too much.

I saw him and Jim Burnworth at Tacoma Sportsmans Club last Thursday. They were with a disabled vet I believe getting ready for archery hunt he was shooting his crossbow from his tracked wheelchair. Not a fan of burnworth coming out here and shooting  local elk for a show but if they're going to do a disabled vet hunt I thought that was cool.

As far as hunting these local kapowsin Eatonville out goes... They're either there or they're not unless you have lots of property connected you could end up paying $2,500 to get stuck on a 20-acre parcel with elk won't be back there for a week or you end up driving around and shown elk standing in field that you're not allowed to hunt and then it gets iffy on whether or not you guys can figure something out or way to get on those elk and that's where it gets kind of gray area dicy and he ends up getting a bad reputation.

You can rent one of his old fields that the guy that owns the field won't let him hunt in anymore for $2,000 for the whole season either Muzzleloader or rifle and $1,000 for each additional person after that so two guys for three grand guaranteed elk in the rifle season. Shouldn't be a problem during Muzzleloader season either

I was at the Fallen Outdoors banquet a month or so ago. I heard Josh's story. As much as I don't like Barbour from what I've read on here, I have to give the guy a lot of credit. He gave away a bunch of guided hunts to raise money for TFO and then took Josh on this hunt. He deserves a high 5 for that.

" In today's instant gratification society, more and more pressure revolves around success and the measurement of one's prowess as a hunter by inches on a score chart or field photos produced on social media. Don't fall into the trap. Hunting is-and always will be- about the hunt, the adventure, the views, and time spent with close friends and family. " Ryan Hatfield

If you've read the past posts, I don't think you'll find any more enlightening info.  Take it for what it is.  There may be truth behind many stories and there may be exaggeration.  It's your call on your own risk vs. reward scale of opportunity.

Thanks fellas! I've been on one bad hunt where I pressed charges and filed complaints with F&G. The NM outfitter lost his license to guide and I found out others had filed complaints also. Just a dam shame people out there want to take advantage of others in illegal, immoral ways.  :bash:

I was there also on Thursday when they first showed up, acted like they owned the place. My boss actually has that field rented out for archery and hasnt seen an elk in the field yet!

I talked to Shane when I got into muzzy about 7-8 years ago.  He seemed like a good guy I just didn't want to hunt that way.  I want to be more active than sitting in a blind over bait.
