Would Recommend: Yes 100% - I am booked to hunt

Overall Impression: Excellent

Very Professonal! 70% of their hunters are repeat clients, which is a very big statement in itself. Camp was full the week I was there with 36 hunters on the first day. All did not hunt all week, but 18 bears were taken and recovered. (3-4 bears taken were in the 350-400 lbs range.) 2 or 3 more were shot and never recovered, and 3 or 4 were shot at and missed. Several hunters had multiple sightings and passed on shot opportunities with hopes for a larger bear. There was no question that the bait sites were active. If everyone that fired at game had properly placed their bullets, the success rate on animals taken would have been around 70% (which is very, very good for black bear hunting). The guides were very knowledgable, the staff was very friendly, and the food was excellent. I give this operation a "Two Thumbs Up!" and highly reccomend them to anyone. They have a web site at www.northcountrylodge.com .
