Ouch. OK, good to know. Was it the outfitter/guide that was rude or a-hole customers? I was invited to hunt with a group this season that uses this outfitter. Nice guys, so probably not the ones you encountered.
On a related note, is everything expensive American style package hunts now? All the online stuff I have been seeing sounds like it. Can you still just get your permits, etc, drag a trailer down there and pretty much DIY (with "guide" of course) all season? If so, who do you go through?
