Any thoughts on what a suitable tip would be for a guide on a big game hunt or a fishing trip? What should the amount of a tip be based on? How about the cooks and wranglers involved, should they also be considered?
Tips are so subjective. 10% seems exorbinate to me. on a 7 day hunt at $5000 thats 500. or over 70 bucks a day. 50 a day is a lot to me. 25 is more reasonable. So for me a couple hundred is normal. If I'm really impressed I might throw in a c note or two more but thats the limit. I'm no rich man so a hundred bucks is not insignificant to me.
Hunting is not usually a pursuit where instant gratification abounds. It takes a lot of time, practice, resources and patience to be a successful hunter. So when someone decides that an area they hunted only once without taking an animal is worthless and devoid of game, I don't quite understand it. These people usually jump from game management unit to game management unit; trying a new one every year.
Now don't get me wrong, there are people that just enjoy scouting and hunting...
