Has anyone ever booked a hunt through an outfitter named Rich Botta? He post a lot of hunts on Ebay. Looking for feedback. I have never used an outfitter, always dealt with the guy that owned the company and conducted the hunts. Thanks,Chris.

I haven't , but I've talked to the guy on the phone. My impression is that he was pretty clueless on lots of his mule deer hunts. For instance:

1. He had mule deer hunts offered in the Oklahoma Panhandle. In the description it was listed as an area where many Boone and Crocket deer were killed every year. Anyone who pays attention knows that's a lie. I asked him on the phone about that and his reply was, "that's what the landowner told me".

2. He advertised several muley hunts on the E Plains of Colorado. When I talked to him about that I told him to have the outfitter to call me, and he did. He didn't even have any more tags available.

3. There was another trophy hunt advertised for NW Colorado. He had attached a picture for this hunt of some huge bucks that resided on an area outside of SL City UT that couldn't be hunted. I had seen the pic before on Muley Crazy and they had the real scoop on the pictures.

In short I personally think this Rich guy is clueless.


There is nothing that enters a man from outside which can defile him; but the things which come out of him, those are the things that defile a man.

I do wonder if this is a serious question. Who in their right mind would book any hunt on ebay?


Don't just be a survivor, be a competitor.

Thanks JGRaider and Drummond. He list several Eastern Colorado Mule Deer and Whitetail hunts on his website with some pretty high success rates and scores. Think I'll stay clear. Drummond his whitetail hunts are in extreme southeast CO., units 143,144 and 145. I know you have loads of experience w/ Eastern CO Mule deer and Whitetail hunts. I hope you had a good season in Mexico.

DO NOT USE THIS STUTTERING CON ARTIST. Myself and friend made the mistake of booking with this ahole in 2009 a couple of years ago for a late season Iowa buck hunt, semiguided on private farms. I posted a full review on Nexthunt.com and Bowsite.com. And just recently within the past week I have been contacted by two other people who were also ripped off. HE IS A LIAR and never refunded my money..............on a hunt where we never even go to hunt because he tried to have some guy sneak us on private property where we would have been arrested. If you have any question email me at magnum72576yahoo.com. TONY

Just a reminder to all my fellow hunters. Do not use Rich Botta or richhuntingadventures. I continue to get calls from more people that also got ripped off.
