Overall Impression: Disappointing

We were booked for the Bow-only hunt. We were told we would see hundreds of Caribou. We hunted hard all day every day for a week. We saw very few animals and mostly Does and yearlings, only six stags. We never saw anything that would resemble a trophy. Four Caribou were taken in camp, all very young Stags, and the hunters were glad to get those as game was so scarce. Our guides were great and worked exceptionally hard. They are the only thing that kept the hunt from being a disaster. My overall impression of this outfit is its a hunter mill. Run as many hunters through as possible with no regard for the quality of the experience. The equipment of the outfitter was in extremely poor condition, especially the vehicles used to transport hunters.
