Wonder if he ever looks on here to see how famous he is?  :chuckle:

I wonder if they know that his dad has veterans benefits for burial, if he was honorably discharged.

Hopefully if they don't know someone will tell them that's a very hard time losing a family member

For my son's graduation present, we booked a 2017 late muzzleloader elk hunt with West Coast Adventures and Outfitters. Our experience was absolutely horrible I posted our experience on bowsite.com. There used to be another post about this outfitter on this site looks like it was removed.

It would be nice to know what his new business name will be.

Could just name it something very generic that gets lost in search engines or something easily confused with a different group--(assuming you are going to get hit with tons of negative reviews again).  Could call it Hunting Washington Adventures and it would get all tangled up with this site.  :yike:

What's really sad, is that Shane was bragging to another hunter recently about the inheritance he was about to receive. Over a million cash, plus a few dozen rental houses, and whatever is made from the sale of the estate. Might be why only $20 got donated.

If the rentals, inheritance, and VA burial benefits are true then it sounds like whoever wrote the GoFundMe solicitation is as big of a scud as Shane.

I don't think it's sad to see a guy who truly believes he was wronged stand up for himself, as well as help inform anybody else who is interested in the subject.  Maybe he could leave out the second-hand info, as that does not help his cause in the long run...

But through a long history of reports of this type, this outfitter has made his bed.

I understand the sticking up for yourself when you've been wronged but in this case I don't feel he was and the second hand info shows the actual way this person thinks.IMO
And just because I don't agree with him he says I should check my moral compass

 :yeah: Shane took advantage of the guy. We should be thanking guys like DBranger for letting us all know, so maybe someone else doesn't make the same mistake of hiring this d-bag in the future.
The best friend a guy could have asked for. RIP chasing pheasants in heaven Denali girl.

So much bad karma with this dude I think the more visibility the better. I wouldn't go on a hunt with his business if it was free.

Actually he said it about 5 pages ago. And no worries my moral compass is right on track.
It may not seem like it but I actually  feel bad that the op feels he was screwed.
However it's still my opinion that he wasn't
