Outfitter Response: We help hundreds of hunters each year when you figure in bear, ducks, deer and moose and try our very best to take care of all. Also with that many people over several years one gets to meet lets just say a very wide verity as no two persons are alike. Mr. Labounty actually had sent a letter to the BBB who then sent a request to me asking about his statements per the letter. I replied right away as I was very concerned and have never heard a thing since sending my reply letter to the BBB. Further, Mr. Labounty never once spoke with me nor contacted me to voice any of his concerns or I would have been happy to speak with him to try and work through any of these things he has brought up. to answer to the statement that he has written on this site I am providing Below is an exact copy of the reply I had sent to the BBB back in 2008, base on the exact 7 items he had sent a complaint into the BBB about. Wednesday, November 26th; 2008 BBB Bureau Service Coordinator RE: case # 49581 : Richard Labounty Needless to say after picking up my mail today and reading this I am somewhat shocked! First, all my clients are very important to me and I along with my staff work very hard in trying to provide a quality first class experience for the customer. So this letter has really set me back as well as upset me!. Now to the letter and the following issues that Mr. LaBounty seems to have #1. That on the last few days he hunted with the lodge he said he found out through his guide he was on native land. #2. That the lodge has illegal stands and blinds on this land. #3. That the lodge has illegal stands on crown land. #4. That I have the only meat locker in the area. #5. That he was only given 35lb. Of deer meat. #6. That my guide said that it is common for me to keep hunters meat for myself. #7.That I had spoke with his father and after assuring them he had all his meat I basically laughed about screwing them. #1. They could have been on a part of land that we have guided on for over 65 years and which was only just given to the natives through an Ontario land deal with the natives. As Curry, their guide has indeed hunted for me for the past 7 years he had been guiding on this land long before the deal with the Ontario government and the natives. This does not mean that the lodge or I condone his using this land! However Yes I have used it from time to time in the past year as I also employed native guides who helped place stands there! We scout extensively to help provide all our clients with the best possible chance at an animal. It is both hard work, time consuming as well as expensive given the price of gas. Now if in the last two days their guide decided to place Mr. LaBounty there I am sorry but I was not his guide on those days. #2. The stand that Mr. LaBounty refers to was last used by my native guides this past season and having them place it there does not make it illegal. #3. With our family operating a fishing and hunting business for 65 years plus in the same area. It is safe to say we have hunted a good major part of all the surrounding land. We use mostly portable tree stands along with several ground blinds which is perfectly legal to due. I also have a BMA where we have some solid wood stands also that we use from time to time. But again, I am a licenced outfitter and can use the crown land. We work very hard to help everyone be as successful as possible. In the 65 years we have been here we do not have one violation against us! We practice good sportsmanship, ethical hunting practices including fair chase hunts for our deer. #4. My claim to the only wild game locker in the area is true.The next closest one is 40 miles away! It was put in by us at great expense so our clients animals wouldnít spoil and we built it big enough to also handle other peoples deer from around the area. We are very proud of our locker. That I charged Mr. LaBounty $100. To process his deer is wrong. I charge the public $115. To skin and butcher a deer and for my client I charge $95. That is what I charged them and they seemed happy with that as Mr. LaBounty gave me a $10. Tip for cleaning his deer for him! #5. That he was only given 35lb of boneless meat! This is true, that is all he had from his deer!! We butcher boneless here and plus we also trim all the meat so it is very clean without any outside membrane. We also do not take any rib meat, meat around the belly on up on the neck or lower parts of the leg. Also a lot depends on where the animal is shot as you also cut away any and all bloody, discoloring meat from the area surrounding where the animal had been shot. A typical deer that weighs around 180 lb field dressed under the best of conditions taking only the best meat from the 4 quarters, back straps and tenderloins will produce around 54 lbís of boneless meat. This doesnít include deducting any meat cut from shot areas or damaged from bone fragments and includes rib meat [ which is mostly fat ] I am including a few copies for your reference from people who clean hundreds more deer per year than my small place here at the lake. Please read the entire article from both and you will see that for yourself. #6. That my guide said it was common for me to keep meat from my hunters for myself. This is indeed fact because a great many of my hunters fly here to hunt and do not want all the extra hassles or expense in flying their deer meat home so they just donate the meat to the camp. I in turn provide all my staff with good deer meat to take home for the winter. Because we get a ton of meat given to us I most certainly do not need nor require Mr. Labountys deer meat. Personally I also have a buck tag as well as 2 doe tags that I will fill for myself. At this moment I have already shot a doe and am not in any hurry as the season goes into mid December here for residents to hunt. In fact I will be hunting this coming weekend with a bunch of friends. Mr. Labounty received all the meat that I cut and trimmed from his deer! #7. That I had spoke with his father and explained he had his meat, then basically laughed? Yes I did go over the meat with Mr. LaBounty Sr. as he did express his concern that it first wasnít cut right. So I looked over the cutting form that his son expressed at the time on how it was to be cut up, which was written down. After explaining that he then said he didnít think he received all his meat. I went through the box with Mr. LaBounty showing him the roasts, the tenderloins, the packs of steak that were cut from the back straps and his burger. I did not laugh at him then or after. It is a common thing for a lot of folks to think that their deer should produce all kinds of pounds of meat. I have had two fellows bring a buck and a doe at the same time and the guy with the buck received less meat than the guy with the doe and he just cannot understand how that comes to pass. Well each animal is different and everyone shot placement is as well! I take what I do very serious and do not need nor keep anyone meat that was not donated to the lodge. Last season I had a fellow who was staying at another resort that brought me in his deer to process along with other deer in his party. When Mr. Parizo and his friends came to pick up their deer meat I was not here. The butcher who worked for me last year missed giving Mr. Parizo all of his deer meat. After my return and going over the deer that were picked up, I noticed that the locker number for Mr. Parizo was still on one of the boxes in our walk in freezer. I tried to call the resort he was staying at and he had already left for his home state of Vermont. I ended up next day air shipping from International Falls, Mn. his 5 packages of meat to his home in Vermont at my expense of $120. It would have been cheaper to just send a cheque to him for the $115. That I had charged for the skinning and butcher service! But I wanted him to have his meat! While here Mr. LaBounty Sr. slipped and fell braking his gun scope. I wanted him to get his buck but with a broken scope and nobody close by that could fix it he was in a fix. I borrowed Mr. LaBounty one of my rental guns that I normally rent to folks that fly in and do not want the hassle of bring theirs through the airports. I never ask for a dime for this, just told him to go get one! Again, I try to provide the best I can and believe I do. I am not sure where all this came from but I in no way took any of their meat period! I did not place Mr. LaBounty on his stand. I am sorry that these few things have stuck with them and wish I could see some way to resolve it. However, at this point I am about as mad as can be after taking good care of these two fellows and for him to then write this stuff! If you would like Mr. Parizoís phone number to speak with him about what I did with his meat last year after finding some that he didnít receive, that should put the meat issue to bed! As to hunting on the Indian land, thatís an issue that I will address to all my non native guides in thr future. But for the record, Curry is also a card holding Eskimo from eastern Quebec / Labrador coast! Their rights include not only hunting the north but Quebec and Ontario as well. I am not sure what Mr. LaBounty is seeking here. He has nothing coming from me ! Itís good to know that he must have thought our accommodations, meals, equipment and our entire staffs hard work were all OK In closing if I can help answer any further questions please do not hesitate to e mail, write of call. respectfully, Dan Lecuyer Lecuyerís Lodge 1-807-484-2448 lecuyer@earthlink.net the internet is a wonderful thing where anyone can say what they wish. There is however always two sides to anything! Our history, hard work, passion and real love for what we do as well as the folks we help will not change because the comments that have been written by Mr. La Bounty. We most certainly are very proud and happy for all the service provided to thousands of folks who have come through our lodge over the past 60 plus years! Do we make mistakes along the way, absolutely in being in this business for over 60 years one can honestly say that. Do we always try if we know there is an issue that needs fixed to make a fix if possible, yes we do! when you live in the bush and make your living from it there is no other choice. At the end of the day .. Can we say we are 100% successful in every hunt, no not in turns of everyone getting their trophy or the biggest rack ever. Can we say we work hard for all our clients, on every hunt, for every hunter and really do wish a giant buck for all, yes! In closing anyone who would interested in a good hunt and would like to speak to many of our past and present clients about our facilities, service and how hard we'll work for you feel free to drop me a note or call we would welcome your business.
