Would Recommend: No

Overall Impression: Poor

This Outfitter has changed his operation drastically. The camp is no longer within this guides territory, so there is cosiderable travel time required to legally hunt. Camp is situated in a residential area next to some very active train tracks that will wake you anywhere from 2-4 times a night. The area holds good quality game, but is less than 2 hours from Prince George, so the resident hunting pressure is enormous. The residents are better equipped and better positioned than McGregor River outfitters. Expect to road hunt the majority of the time. There is a new "cook" in camp who is in general a pretty surly person. You, by simple being there are an inconvenience. Every problem we experienced was blamed on everyone else by the outfitter. Our guide was contracted by McGregor river, and was an outstanding individual. He was able to somewhat salvage our trip. Unfortunately, we never came to any acknowldgement of shortcomings by the outfitter, and ultimately, the formal complaint process via he GOABC has begun.
