Well here I go again. I have traveled the world and done numerous activities, eaten at the finest restaurants, and stayed at the nicest hotels. Despite that, only one experience has moved me enough to write about it — JHSE. This was my fourth trip to Jackson Hole , my fourth time with JHSE, and now my third review.
2 years ago, my review started out by marveling at how a business could have 185 reviews and every one a 5 Star. Well, 2 years later, they are over 330 reviews and still all 5 Star! It is incredible, as everyone must have a bad day some time — but not Shepherd, Lynn , and their team. They are consistently excellent.
This trip , like the others was a combined trip to climb the Grand and add some shooting. I challenged Shepherd this time with a larger hybrid group of 6 shooters, 2 with a fair amount of experience, 2 with a little, and 2 with none. He and Tim rose to the occasion by creating a 3 day program that met all our needs. We spent a total of 10 hours over 3 days shooting a variety of guns, talking safety, practicing drills, and doing some real life tactical scenarios.
The entire group loved it. The experienced people ate it up and can’t wait to go back, and the newbies all developed increased interest and look forward to taking their skills home and getting more involved.
I won’t belabor the point too much, but this family run business does every thing right. From the point of initial contact , they are very user friendly finding a schedule that works, and they ooze enthusiasm. From that point until the very end of the fun, they are always making sure that they exceed expectations. In fact, as Shepherd and I were carrying my gun case, with the 10 guns I brought out from home, to my truck — he was still asking what he could possibly do better the next time. Quite frankly, I could not think of a thing.
I will definitely be back when I can next manage another trip to Jackson, and I am sure all in my group would love to join me as this is a unique experience that is unavailable in my sad gun fearing democrat run state. The teaching is superb and the people are what makes this a can’t miss experience when in Jackson. I encourage all to indulge!
