Overall Impression: Fantastic Hunt -- Great outfitter

My buddy and I hunted with North Country Outfitting Inc in May of 2007. This was our first bear hunt. The actual trip did not start so great as we missed one leg of our flight and had to be re-routed causing us to miss one day of our hunt. Did I forget to tell you that good 'ol United lost my luggage (which did not arrive until the 3rd day of the hunt). Nevertheless, from the moment we arrived Ron and May McDonald made us feel at home and as though we were part of the family. May called the airport to check on my bags and Ron offered to let me use his gear. Our guide Darcy was a great. He was easy going, friendly, very experienced and very knowledgeable. He made sure we had a good hunt and, we did. We hunted different baited sites (all had fresh baits) and the stands were comfortable and in good condition. The camp consisted of rifle and bow hunters all of whom took good bears. There was a mix of black and color phased (brown's, cinammon, and even a blonde) bears shot. Another great aspect of this hunt is that you are allowed two tags. I was lucky enough to take a black and a big cinammon. My buddy took a great looking brown/cinammon (all three are going to make great rugs/mounts). If you want great scenery, good food and accomodations, abundant game, experienced and friendly guides and want to be treated like a member of the family then this is the outfitter to book with. I dont believe North Country has a website but their phone number is (780)623-1774.
