What is an appropriate tip?

The most important thing for hunters to remember is that guiding is a service business, and all guides throughout the world rely on their tips as part of their earnings.  Having said that, like any service, they must earn it.  There have been many published guidelines on the amount to tip:  10-15% of the hunt cost to the guide; $15-25 a day per person for the cook who also acts as a camp valet; $25 per person for each wrangler or packer that hauls your gear and/or meat.  If you are coming with a group, it is always a good idea to talk with others about how much they plan to tip, so as to avoid embarrassment.
