Overall Impression: Top Notch

I have hunted with Tom Mosher on 2 separate occasions. Once a few years ago for whitetail deer at which time I took a very fine, heavy beamed, 4x4 buck on the 3rd day of the hunt. The hunt was conducted from a permanent mounted treestand in dense cover around the muskeg swamps. The deer in New Brunswick are some of the largest bodied deer I've seen. According to the butcher, mine dressed around 225 pounds, but others will go 250 pounds field dressed. In 2004 I booked a hunt for black bear with Tom Mosher and again, on the 3rd evening I shot a fine bear with a perfect coat. I spotted an even larger bear earlier that same evening, but didn't get a shot. That particular bear I believe would have went close to 400 pounds. I hunted the 2nd week of the season and everyone in camp took bears with the exception of 2 people. Out of the 2 that didn't take a bear home one missed what I would call a very easy shot. In fact he had it recorded on a camcorder for all to watch back at camp. The other fellow didn't see a bear, but was still very satisfied with his hunt. My bear hunt will be in one of the upcoming issues of Fur-Fish-Game Magazine. General Comments: The accommodations (log construction lodge) made for excellent quarters. I would be disappointed if my hunting camp was any more modern than Canoose Camps. There was plenty of hot water for showers with power provided by a generator. Lights in camp were propane powered. Tom Mosher and his guides work long and hard hours and they are far from being lazy. Everyone in camp works diligently, usually well into the night, packing out animals, skinning and caping out the heads for the hunters. I am quite proficient at caping, but when I got my whitetail Tom insisted that he do it for me. Canoose Camp's cook is currently Tom's wife, Jocelyn. She is an excellent cook and a great person. There is plenty of good food in camp. You should plan on gaining a few pounds compliments of Jocelyn. Tom is one of the most interesting people I have ever met. He is about as close to a true frontiersman as today's modern world will allow. He has been a trapper for many years. He is currently building a huge new log lodge and doing it pretty much by himself. Tom & his wife fly into the Northern Territories every year to pick mushrooms for market. He is currently training to get his own pilot license. One of the best things about hunting at Canoose Camps learning from Tom. He's a wealth information on all sorts of outdoor activities. By the way - don't forget to take a fishing pole - the fishing is good also right around camp. I would highly recommend Canoose Camp to anyone that wants to have a great hunt for a fair price.
