Game Description
Major Game Animals Taken:Moose; Caribou, Woodland
Game Sought But Not Taken:; ; ;
Game Conditions Comments:I just came back from a once in a lifetime hunting experience.Battling bad weather for 6 days my guides still managed to put me on a trophy woodland catibou and an average size bull on the last 2 days of the hunt. I plan to return for a larger moose at a later date. this is truly a first class operation from the minute you land at Deer lake airport to the arrival at the main lodge via helicopter.The quality of the guides was incredible. Our guides Randy, Scott, Anthony and Lee did a great job. Last but not least, Ada our chef kept us eating like kings with amazing breakfast, lunch and dinner everyday. Let me not forget those amazing homemade cookies and pies baked daily. Brad, the operational manager was amazing coordinating every facet of the organization. I highly recommend this outfit to anyone interested in moose and caribou.

Would You Recommend This Hunt to a Friend?yes
Why?First class since you arrive until the day you leave (you actually don't want to leave)rnI took my wife and she stayed at the cabin enjoying the scenery and the company of Ada. One of the guides actually took her on a little tour around one of the lakes
