No it really isnt. Money talks and bullshit walks in any part of the world. If someone else comes in with cash in hand no outfitter in the world is waiting on you to maybe send them your money. You werent bumped because you never had a hunt booked. Quit pissing and moaning and trashing the great state of Texas. It is one of the most diverse places in the world. Not only in hunting types and styles but its people as well.After committing to the guide in writing and requesting a contract, he never responded until the following week to tell me I was bumped. But I see the issue more clearly now...I was trying to book a hunt and they were only interested in booking harvests. It's different down there.
If I have money, I can go harvest (as you call it) the biggest elk I want. Or sheep. Or Moose. Or any other animal that walks this planet. An outfitter in California, Montana, Arizona, Alaska, Canada, wherever will take my green money and put me on a harvest. There are plenty of hard hunts in Texas. You stumbled on one that isnt to your liking and you want to ridicule all hunting associated with Texas.
