Would Recommend: NO

Overall Impression: BAD

This guy is running a scam. I'm sure there were moose in his concession at one time, but it's been hunted out long ago. We had six in our group and three guides. Not a single moose or caribou was spotted all week. This place had zero game. One of the guides admitted that he had NEVER hunted the area (which in our minds does not make him a guide at all, just another person wandering around aimlessly in the bog.) The Argo's were in poor shape and we (the hunters) constantly had to repair them as the guides didn't know how. Also, each group of two was promised an Argo and one group had to go without as there were only two in camp (which meant they had to hunt near camp) Owl's Nest Lodge ripped us off for $30,000 (yes...that's 5k each) Beware...this guy is slick (he should be, he's a lawyer & Owl's Nest is a side thing for him)
