I've been on multiple outfitted hunts and never have been compelled to write a review. But my experience with Moon Valley was class "A". I drew a unit 15 New Mexico tag for the 09/11/07-09/18/07 archery hunt. I have hunted this area before and there are big elk in it. This year was no exception. My first evening in camp, I sat on a water hole and had 6 cows/calfs and 2 spike bulls come to water. All within 20 yards. A bull was screaming up in the hills but would not come to water. The next morning we listened to multiple bulls before making a stalk. Had a 7x7 close before it caught my movement and took off. Called another 6x6 to 12 yards and did not have a shot. The 3rd bull we got on was a nice 6x6 which I ended up taking at 25 yards. 330 class bull. No doubt this was exceptional action, but each of the hunters had experiences with nice elk all week. They all were not a fortunate as me, but all were satisfied with the hunt. The Quality of the elk is unbelievable. When one's bugling and is coming to the call, there is no question that it is a shooter bull. I spent the rest of my hunt glassing different areas morning and evening. Bulls were everywhere, with very few "rag horn" bulls seen. This is a family run service. Corwin's daughter cooks and takes care of the camp. Corwin spends his time in camp with the hunters each morning and night. He ran a camp in unit 9, which he spent 2 nights in before coming back to our camp. His new cabin in unit 15 was very nice. He grew up and is respected in the area. The hunting is in a mix of private and public land. But the unit is large.
