Overall Impression: Beyond Expectations

We were there the week of October 11th, 2009. 4 hunters for moose and we all bagged one. The outfitter, for this season so far, is at almost a 100% moose kill percentage. Do not expect a moose behind every tree. Not all moose taken have monster racks. I was fortunate enough to take a 12 pointer with a 36" spread. Of the 27 or so moose take so far at the camp, mine was the 5th or 6th largest. I saw honest pictured and videos of some real monsters taken at the camp this season. The other 3 hunters in our group got a 4 pointer and two six pointers. I give this information only to give you a feel of what to expect. All of us would gladly come back with this outfitter. Judy, the cook and camp manager does a great job and often prepared some excellent local meals. I talked to several other hunters that went with other outfitters and got a lot of negative comments. Comments such as poor cooking, poor accomodations, poor guides and poor overall experience. WE DO NOT HAVE A SINGLE NEGATIVE COMMENT ABOUT GREG SAMMS AND HIS ORGANIZATION AND ACCOMODATIONS. I talked with the meat processor that handles over 15 other outfitters and got top notch ratings ("one of the best if not the best") regarding the quality of meat (the way its cut, cleaned, handled, stored and delivered)received from Lake Douglas Hunting and Fishing. The hunting can be hard, with over 50% of Newfoundland being bogs. Do not expect a moose the first day of the hunt. It took us several days to get ours. With Lake Douglas you should expect, AND YOU WILL GET, top hunting service at a fair price. Newfoundland Is a vast and beautiful land with warm and friendly people. THIS IS SOMETHING YOU DO NOT WANT TO MISS.
