Overall Impression: Good

Mike Litzen is a very hard working individual. He sees that every client is cared for, and is in a good spike camp that has or is producing game. If the client isn't locating game he will fly you out to a camp that has game. One word of caution before you book a hunt in the tundra, be in very good physical shape!!! Walking through the tundra with all your gear is very difficult, and you will tire easily. It is a test of strength & stamina, so be prepared to work hard!!! I shot a 59" moose, with others in camp taking moose over 60". I saw lots of caribou, and a few good bulls, but nothing close enough to pack out. If you elect to shoot a caribou on a combined hunt, it will take time away from other species. Time needed to pack out the animal back to spike camp, so that Mike can fly the meat and cape & antlers back to the main camp. Be prepared to drink rain & river water, the guide assured me that no-one has gotten sick yet! I saw about 7 bull moose, 1 sow grizly & 2 cubs, lots of ptarmigan, arctic fox. Be sure to bring a camera, because you will be about 37 miles from Mt. McKinley, beautiful views of the Alaskan range! I booked the hunt through Cabela's Outdoor Adventures, and the consultant that I used was Gregg Severinson at 1(800)-346-8747. Mike Litzen offers dall sheep, grizly, brown bear, caribou, moose hunts, and probably more, give Gregg a call at Cabela's Outdoor Adventures for more info.
