Would Recommend: No

Overall Impression: Below average

Guides were mixed in experience and willingness to hunt but the guides were better than the outfitter. Equipment was extremely poor condition. Outfitter's ad said 90% success rate on moose. Of 5 hunters we took 2 moose (40%) success rate but we took every moose that was within range. In 6 days of hunting 5 hunters saw a total of 7 moose, most at over a mile distance and not accessible or the guides weren't willing to hunt them. Caribou hunting was very good and all tags were filled. Bear hunting was not good, no bears or bear sign seen. You can easily get a better hunt.
