Considering a hunt with Carlton...any Bowsiters have personal experience hunting with him?

I have hunted with Carlton the last 23 years. He runs a top notch operation. Him and his sons do most of the hunts. The other guides he uses are local and know the area very well. Very honest man and I highly recommend him.

I hunted with him in 2016. Unit 16d. Great hunt and I killed a good bull. Only one thing I wish would have been different. We had to drive over two hours one way to get to our hunting area each day. Made for a lot of time in the truck! However, guide did all the driving and was a great guy so conversation was excellent. I would hunt with him again if I could get a tag!

Like I said the guide did all the driving, but yep.

About the only thing near 16D is that corner gas and convenience store.

If you fly in from out of state and don't have camp gear....closest motel is a long poke. USO has a bunkhouse down there....and so does Mick Chappell. Hopefully that recommended outfitter has invested in a wall tent by now.

I took my dad with Carlton in unit 12 a few years ago but it was a late season rifle hunt. Carlton is an awesome guy and so glad I went with him. A friend hunted unit 13 archery with him a few times and gave me the recommendation. Like most hard working men, he isn't easy to contact via phone or internet, but will get the job done when elk hunting.
