I hunted with Greg Samms, owner of Grand Lake Adventures during the moose rut in Newfoundland. I flew into Deer Lake, caught a 5 minute taxi ride to a hotel and the following morning was picked up by Gaby(?) to be transported to the helicopter which would place us in the heart of moose and caribou country. This got us away from the locals whom to my understanding beat the roads to death looking for moose. The helicopter was a 15 to 20 minute ride and placed us within 30 yards of his cabins on the shore of a small lake. There was only 1 other hunter in camp and I was going to be hunting 1 on 1. Greg's accommodations are superb considering you are away from electricity. He has a separate cabin separate from the cookhouse and guides accommodations. Each room in the cabin had a woodstove and absolutely excellent padded beds. A good night's rest is a necessity.
I've hunted with well over 50 different outfitters and I would honestly say the provided food was absolutely incredible, probably the best I've ever had in a hunt camp. He had a generator that ran and provided flush toilets and hunting movies to watch on his big screen television. Greg had a small boat for transportation across the lake and 2 extremely dependable 8-wheel drive Argos to hunt from.
Unfortunately fog and wind played a major factor during my week of hunting and we were cabin bound every day with the exception of 1 full day and that was the day I took opportunity of harvesting a book woodland caribou. The other days we would have a few hours in the mornings or a couple hours in the evening where the weather would break and again I took advantage and harvested my eastern moose. He was not the big one I was looking for but due to the circumstances I was extremely pleased to harvest a bull.
Greg has a great area and I believe everyone will get their caribou unless you're bound to the cabin due to weather for the entire week. Greg has a very good head of respectable caribou which he manages closely. As far as moose go I feel we were just unlucky that week due to the weather. I honestly believe he has good moose.
Greg is very hardworking to get you your animals. There were no problems and no surprises.
Without question I would recommend this outfitter and I will be returning again to hunt with him in the very near future.
