SUMMARY REMARKS
Problems of Hunt: The only problem with this hunt is that the moose were not cooperating, which is what moose can do. We had fresh tracks and scrapes all over the areas we hunted. This is hunting and it took 6 days to finally cross paths with a moose, and then seal the deal. No one is at fault. This is "luck". We just weren't crossing paths in synchronicity.
Highlights of Hunt: I was very excited to hear that my friend Mike Jensen who was hunting with Darren Bell, co-owner of BC & Beyond, tagged out very early in the morning of day 2. Mike had driven up from Omaha, NE where I am from and he was able to bring home the meat from the harvest. This is a physical hunt and was a great adventure getting into old logging "blocks" and logging roads by truck, then going at it by foot for miles calling and glassing. During the mid day we were able to hunt Sage and also Ruffed Grouse while we were walking or driving on the logging roads. I harvested a pair of Sage Grouse that I am having mounted. On day 8 of the hunt, we found a very large bear, that would be about 400 lbs. This bear had cubs and the hunt was over. As we were walking back to the truck, we spotted a coyote that I was able to harvest.
Equipment Recommendations: I wore Kennetrek boots that are used often for sheep hunting. These boots kept my feet dry. We were in some serious swampy areas and I don't think my Danner's would have held up. It rains a lot in this area. The best Sitka rain gear you can buy is key to staying dry. We ended up 12 miles from the truck on one of our hikes, and the weather turned on us for the worse. The rainwear and boots were important to keep us dry and warm.
Would You Recommend This Hunt to a Friend? yes
Why? This outfitter offers two Moose hunts per year. Their goal is quality over quantity. Both Mike Jensen and I tagged out, so that is 100 percent for the year.

ADDITIONAL HUNTER COMMENTS AND/OR OUTFITTER/BOOKING AGENT REBUTTAL
This is an honest and hard working outfitter. I'm glad that I booked with Marty and Darren, whom I have met at GSCO conventions now for the past few years. The accommodations were very nice at a hotel in Prince George. We had daily continental breakfast, lunches that were home made from Darren's wife, and the dinners were at places such as Boston Pizza, a steak house, etc. I have been on many hunts and they did not skimp on food or accommodations.

Marty had indicated that our opportunities to hunt different animals could arise, so I took the opportunity to have a license so we could hunt grouse or coyotes. It was a lot of fun hunting grouse with a .410 single shot that was provided by Marty; that made it quite sporty to hit them once aflight.

There are so many animals in north america to hunt. I will return to hunt again, however, I have so many hunts booked out now for the next two years that I won't be able to come back and hunt spring black bear for several years.

I give this outfit an A+ as a rating.
