Overall Impression: Good

Was outfitter first year in business, though he had been a guide for a number of years previously. The hunt was late in October and almost missed rut. I shot a small moose on guide's call on first day. Very disappointing 26" spread, not at all trophy quality. Outfitter did try to make it right by offering free hunt if I wanted to return the next year. It was my first moose hunt and I was looking for a nice bull at least 35 to 40" which outfitter assured me were plentiful in area. Two other hunters in camp, one shot moose on first day about 35". Other hunter never saw anything. We later figured out rut ended on first day or so of hunt and bulls never came in to calls later. I took a small mulie buck about 21" - 4x4 late in hunt. Never saw anything larger. Hunted hard for whitetails but never saw anything. Accomodations were adequate, but would have not been if weather had not been fair. I stayed in wall tent but other hunters stayed in camp trailers. Outfitter did cooking. It was okay and filling, but nothing to brag about. Overall, hunting was poor, area was spectacular scenery abutting Banff National Park, guides and outfitter were good hunting and camp companions making for a good hunting experience, but not a hunt for a trophy quality animal.
