Richs Hunting Adventures - Bear Hunt Review from Middleburg, Pennsylvania

I booked two hunts through Richs hunting adventures through eBay I sent him $1700.00 deposit for a bear hunt in Saskatchewan Canada I was unable to get into Canada due to a DUI 25 years ago contacted Rich and he told me of a hunt in Wyoming so I went to Wyomingto hunt bear with my daughter I paid in full to the outfitter for two hunts . When I got home I contacted Rich and asked him for the deposit back he told me he paid the outfitter in Canada the deposit so I called Keith he told me he never received a dime from him and also sent a letter stating this now Rich won't pay me so I'm in the process of filing charges against him and he also posts hunts on EBay and then gets you to send him the money so he circumvents EBay and they don't get there money stay away from this guy he is nothing more than a scam artist he will be also handed into the IRS I hope he paid taxes on all those hunts he claims to have sold

Bob couldnt get into canada. His guide was pissed off cause he paid for all the baiting and kept the deposit.

It took me 3 hours but i found bob a hunt in wyoming and he shot a bear. Bob thinks i shouldt get paid for my serivices. I even offered Bob $1000 credit towards any hunt i have in the US for free just to make him happy but he turned that down. I been selling hunts for 15 years and have 3 complaints .

I guess im doing pretty good considering insell 100+ hunts a year:) i have 100's of references feel free to ask . Also you talk with the outfitter first before booking with me and u can send payment to them first if you like.

Scammer

He talks a big story bull @@@@@ alot takes a deposit then trys to switch it up. beware paypal because they back him because there is no protection for non-tangable goods. He will only tell you the contact info for the out fitter after he gets the deposit then when you contact them there is a whole different scenario. Do your home work find a reputable out fitter with real reviews one that has the same name for more than a year at a time. If you do give a deposit kiss it good bye the only way to get it back is charging him with fraud. Mark

We were also ripped off By RICH BOTTA

This guy is a scam artist. He sells his hunts on ebay and has no feedback. Funny how when he stutters he sssssssssays he sells hundreds of hunts. However there is no feedback on ebay in the last year. He took our money for an IOWA hunt for deer and his homeless, toothless guide tried to put us on posted property and we almost got arrested. We never even got to hunt. I have listed a detailed account on many of the hunting websites. Just search his name and you will see how many other people he ripped off besides me and my buddy. Tony

Here is another guy part of the 3 complaints i have had over the years. Tony paid for a tresspass hunt and expected a fully guided hunt.

They were going on a $1000tresspass hunt. He never hunted the property just complained about it .

Tony is a police officer and its a shame he trys to make fun of some one for stuttering i wonder how his sargent would feel or the media? Feel free to ask for refrences and talk with the outfitter before booking hunts

Very Mature tony considering you are in law enforcement and making fun of someone stuttering very classy of you. ok here is the real story.

My Father and I hunted with an outfitter in Iowa a both missed monster bucks so the following year i decided to sell hunts for this outfitter.We were charging $2999 for the hunt Tony and his friend said that that was too much money for them to spend and were more interested in a tresspass fee hunt. So i went to the outfitter and asked him if he had a tresspass fee hunt. He told me he didn't because his property was booked with fully guided hunts. So the outfitter gave me his cousins name and told me he had access to many different properties.

So i called Outfitters cousin and he told me he would do these hunts for $1200 per hunter . So I explained to tony the situation and he wanted to go out there. tony sent me $600 per hunter and i made $120 per hunter 10% and sent a wire transaction for the rest to the outfitters cousin. tony and his friend drove to Iowa and met with the outfitters cousin and were disappointed with the property they did not want to hunt it.

I explained to tony i sent a wire transfer to the outfitters cousin and he would be the one to refund you back. Well the outfitters cousin did not want to refund him back because he had property available and tony did not want to hunt it. So i explained to tony that i would refund him what i ever i made on the deal just to make him happy and put the money he spent($600 per hunter) as credit towards one of my fully guided hunts. tony declined to all those.

He wanted me to send him the full $1200 amount and threaten to talk bad about me online if i did not. So here we are!! i tried everything i can do to make him happy. I even wanted to give him $600 out of my own money and he said no he wants the full $1200.

Instead of being happy that i am trying to work with him he goes around the internet saying i have a stuttering problem. Real mature tony. feel free to call or ask me questions at huntingrich@***.com 914-606-****.

And yes tony i do have many happy clients and do book 150+ plus hunts a year but i guess you cant please everyone. feel free to ask me for references i have references from all over the us and Canada.

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. I hope this is helpful to anyone considering using Rich's Hunting Adventures to book a hunt.

Amd then there is this guy . He booked a hunt and cancelled 2 weeks before.

You can speak directly with the outfitter and he will tell you the truth. We offered money money back and hunts for mule deer through out the US but he turned it down.

Anyone that knows me knows that i have multiple mule deer hunts all over the US. He is lying and he knows it.
