Quick question on tips on a discount hunt, do u tip for the regular full price of the hunt or tip for the discount price? Thanks example regular $6,000 10% or 3000=10%

If you use that as a basis I would use the full price as a guideline. Your guide, if not the outfitter himself, may not have any idea what you actually paid for your hunt. He may just know that you are a paying customer.

Lots of threads on this one. Depending on how bored folks are, this one could blow up.

Lottery on how long it takes for the guys who don't "Believe" in tipping to give us all the reasons they aren't cheap?

I once guided Chuck Yeager. Got an autographed picture for a tip.

That autograph might be worth a grand now!

For me, a more logical way to tip a guide is not based on the total outfitter fee, but rather, based on the daily rate the guide is paid. Acceptable job you might add 50% to his daily rate. Super job, you might double his daily rate, or more.
