Overall Impression: Good

I went on the early Bowhunt-Sept 3-8. This was my first Moose hunt. I did not realize that this was "spot and stalk" during this time of the year. In fairness I was told that this would be a "tough hunt". Because this was my first hunt, I did not know to ask why. The weather was unusally hot. It was 70-75 most of the time and 82 on the last day. That and the full moon pretty much shut the moose down. There was new and fresh sign all over, but they just weren't coming out in the heat. We saw animals, but only for a little while at first light. I just couldn't get on them or in front of them fast enough before they disappeared into the woods. In all this was a good hunt. The accomodations and food were very good, and I enjoyed hunting with my guide-1 on 1. I would recommend this outfitter, but I would choose a later time during the rut in late September or early October.
