Would Recommend: No

Overall Impression: Poor

Camp equipment was extremely poor. The remote camp required hunting via boat. Only one boat was operating for a 5 day hunt for four hunters and it only had a 2.5 HP motor! Hunters had to take turns attempting to go out in the boat. The weather turned bad and the motor was unable to navigate the rough water on the river. Hunting from camp was near impossible - very thick terrain with many bogs - dangerous to hunt on foot. Numerous complaints were filed, via writing and telephone, with the Outfitter and they have yet to respond and the hunt was in October of 2000. No moose was taken by any hunter at that camp and only one 1/2 rack was sighted during the entire week. We were told to buy bear tags and there was no chance of taking a bear at this location. The literature mailed contains a brochure picturing many animals. All persons pictured are relatives of the outfitter. (I wish I would have known that before.) I read about this outfitter in Peterson's Hunting, obviously they provided the writer with a great hunt to lure in other suckers. Would not go back or recommend this outfitter to anyone! All they want is your money! I still want to take a moose. Anyone having any suggestions on a reputable place to go, please let me know.
