Warning about Rich's Hunting Adventures

 

Just a warning to my fellow hunters - I booked a hunt in Craig Colorado in January of this year with Rich Botta of Rich's Hunting Adventures out of New York. I gave him a $2000.00 deposit. He cashed my check. After ten months with no response to e-mails, calls, or texts, two weeks before the hunt, he tells me he has no hunts in Craig. Says I can hunt in Mexico! No offer made to hunt in the U.S. as a replacement. I asked for my deposit back, he texted “lol”. He has kept my deposit.

Another hunter that didn't do

Another hunter that didn't do his own homework and lost his money, then comes onto a dozen different outdoor forums and makes one post about how it was all the outfitters fault.

Can you say lawsuit?

One google search and you can tell this wasn't going to turn out good!  And the guy taking this poor sap's money even tried to defend himself on a couple of the sites rather than simply reimbursing the $2000.  Yep - do your homework next time... the same comments on most of the other sites.  Bash

I've been on several websites

I've been on several websites with this same deal and they turned into comical circle jerks. I'm now on his mosted wanted list for calling booking agent Botta out on them, LOL! He'll be on here with a big song and dance of how great he is IF he sees it's now on this site!
