Complaint Review: Adventures Wild Inc.
Adventures Wild Inc. Adventures Wild LLC. DON'T WASTE YOUR TIME OR YOUR MONEY! THEY WILL RIP YOU OFF! Aurora, Colorado
I contacted Chris Vaughn/Owner/guide of adventures Wild inc & agreed to a weekend hunt, which would cost $800 USD.
Chris requested I sent a $400 deposit to secure the date/time for the guided hunt. I sent Chris a $400USD money order & he acknowledged the delivery of the payment via text message
Chris then sent me a contract to sign acknowledging the date/time & total monetary amount needed to complete the hunt. Along with the contract I sent back to Chris, I also included the rest of the $400 payment. This is where things began to go downhill.
From this point on, Chris was very vague (sometimes even completely non-responsive) to my text messages & email. Any calls to him went unanswered & I even left detailed voice mails with absolutely no calls returned.
I also had to buy 2 seperate Nebraska Turkey tags, which were about $100USD a piece. Keep in mind these tags are completely non-refundable.
The hunt was supposed to be this upcoming weekend, & I have been desperately trying to get a response from Chris Vaughn as to details on where to go & the hotel reservations.
I got a very simple & unsympathetic email this AM (was supposed to be leaving tomorrow PM for the hunt) & was told there was a medical emergency & that we'd have to reschedule.
I could see if Chris was professional & was returning my calls with good information/details leading up to this email, but as there was absolutely none of that, I feel like this is some sort of excuse/scam to keep my money orders & keep pushing me out of a hunt.
If this business owner was professional, he would have called me directly & to explain the situation, not send a 2-sentence email to me & not respond to any of my replies from that point.
I am now out of $1000 USD because I'm not sure if he is going to refund my money & I cant refund the non-resident turkey tags
I even delayed a business trip from this weekend to Monday, as I was expecting to go on this hunt.
PLEASE, DO NOT GIVE THIS COMPANY YOUR BUSINESS! THEY HAVE CAUSED NOTHING BUT STRESS.
The webiste claims to be reputable (& it certainly looks that way), but the actions (or lack thereof) presented by this "business owner" Chris Vaughn, has left such a foul taste in my mouth & i'll be scared to trust any other guide from this point on
PEOPLE THIS THIS RUIN IT FOR OTHER OUTFITTERS WHO ARE ACTUALLY PROFESSIONAL & DO WHAT THEY SAY
I URGE YOU TO PLEASE TELL EVERYONE YOU KNOW TO NOT EVEN THINK ABOUT DOING BUSINESS WITH THIS SO-CALLED "OUTFITTER".
