Overall Impression: TOP NOTCH

THIS WAS A FALL 99 HUNT. ARRIVED IN ALBERTA TWO DAYS EARLY AND TOOK IN SOME OF THE COUNTRY AROUND PEACE RIVER. HOOKED UP WITH THE OWNER,BOB AND HIS WIFE, TRICIA, AT OUR SCHEDULED TIME. HAD BREAKFAST AND HEADED OUT. THE FIRST IMPRESSION ALWAYS SEEMS TO RIGHT ONE. THESE WERE REALLY GREAT PEOPLE. THE TRIP IN TO CAMP WAS JUST A DESCRIBED. NOT FUN. THE BUSH CAN BE UNFORGIVING. UPON REACHING CAMP FOUND THE STAFF TO BE A REFLECTION OF THE OWNER. AND THE FACILITIES WERE SUPER COMFORTABLE. THE FIRST TWO DAYS BOB WAS OUR GUIDE. THE SCHEDULED GUIDE HAD BEEN IN CAMP FOR A WHILE AND NEEDED A BREAK. NOT ONLY WERE WE HUNTING BUT LEARNING AT THE SAME TIME. NOT A LOT OF ACTION BUT SOLID 10 HOURS A DAY IN EFFORT. WHEN OUR SCHEDULED GUIDE, ROGER, RETURNED TO CAMP, WITH HIS WIFE AND TRICIA, WE GOT THE SAME 10 HOUR DAY EFFORT OUT OF ROGER. AND THE HUNT ITSELF? A SHOT AT A WOLF, BY THE OTHER HUNTER AND I MIGHT ADD A MISSED SHOT. A REALLY GREAT STORY BY NOT ENOUGH SPACE OR TIME. AND THE MOOSE. WE SAW ANIMALS, ONE NICE ONE, BUT DID NOT HARVEST ONE. YES, MY FRIEND AND I SPENT A GOOD DOLLAR TO COME HOME EMPTY. IN GAME. BUT HUNTING IS MORE THAN THE KILL AND WE, HUNTERS AND GUIDES, HAD A GREAT VACATION. FOUND SOME NEW FAR AWAY FRIENDS THAT WE KEEP IN TOUCH WITH. WOULD I RECOMMEND THIS HUNT AND OUTFITTER. WELL,I'M SAVING MY PENNIES TO RETURN FOR THE 2001. SEASON. I HAVE TO ADD. THERE WERE SOME NICE BULLS HARVESTED. CHECK THEIR WEB PAGE WWW.CHINCHAGA.AB.CA/
