How much is the correct amount to tip a guide for a succesful hunt? Lets say the guide charges $1000.00 for a seven day bear hunt and you are succesful in filling your tag. The guide was extremely orgonized and it showed that he had put in a lot of time putting up stands and baiting. Going into this hunt I told myself that I would tip my guide a dollar for each pound my bear weighed, but after seeing all that he had done this just didn't seem enough for me so I did tip more. Just looking for other peoples opions and what you have done in the past.
