Overall Impression: Poor

The owner Bob Dunlop and guides were all capable hunters and easy to get along with. I was successful and harvested a beautiful moose, 8X12 and 43 inches wide. Although I was successful I couldn’t recommend North Anzac Outfitters to anyone. It’s the little things that make a hunt of a lifetime successful, not just harvesting an animal. For two days of the hunt there was only a block of cheese, bread, and some granola bars for lunch. Additional supplies were brought back to camp on the fourth night of the hunt. Dinners were excellent. The accommodations were nice and what I expected for a wilderness hunting camp. There was a propane four burner stove, gas lanterns, and an emergency generator if needed. There were three hunters in camp and two moose harvested. The other successful hunter harvested his moose on day five of the six-day hunt. He was told it was too late to process any meat for the flight home and to work it out with me if he wanted meat to take back. I had no problem splitting the meat with the other hunter, but think the outfitter should have immediately taken the meat to the processor with a rush order. The hunter whom didn’t harvest a moose had a chain smoker for a guide. He even smoked while walking into the areas they were going to hunt. Any hunter knows smoking greatly reduces your chances of success regardless of game being hunted. The unsuccessful hunter wasn’t allowed to hunt the evening of the last day of the hunt, because the new hunters had to be picked up at the airport. Who knows maybe that hunter would have harvested his animal the last ten minutes of light that evening. If you pay for a six-day hunt you should be allowed to hunt six full days. Finally when one hunter harvested any animal the other hunters had to stop hunting so their guides could help out. Great teamwork, but the other hunters lost a lot of hunting time when this occurred.
