Reviewer Comments: We did another resident drop camp this year with Dan.Flew in for 14 days.Called in 7 moose on our lake and saw 3 flying. 2 bulls over 50',1 pushing 50,2 in the mid 40's and a spiker.All moose were called in to 50 yards or less.I shot the biggest bull with archery which was 55" and scored 193 gross.Will be the new #5 Pope and Young Bull for Alberta all time.Passed on all other bulls and spent 3/4 of the 14 days in the tent due to unbelievable high winds.Great hunt and we are booked again this year (5th trip ).Moose aren't around every corner but if your hard work and luck come together it can be an amazing hunt.The landcape and northern lights are simply amazing.

Reviewer Comments: Expected a whole lot more as far as seeing moose. Had one opportunity at a very small bull. Five other hunters that I talked with had similar experience. People were terrific, worked hard. Maybe just a bad year?

Reviewer Comments: 2x1 Hunt for which my friend and I purchased fishing licenses (from the outfitter) then were flown to a lake that the outfitter knew had no fish. Furthermore, both guides in camp had NEVER guided for moose before and upon questioning we learned were not able to cape a moose if the need arose. Repeated equipment failure and shortage of gasoline for boats hampered hunting along with the unwillingness of the guides to hunt in windy weather. Ultimately my friend and I ended up hunting without the guides and my friend took a small bull on the second last day of hunt. I would not recommend this outfitter to anyone. He was mostly interested in getting our money. Once that was accomplished the effort to get us an opportunity at an animal ceased. We ended up having to do it ourselves.

Reviewer Comments: If you are looking for a inexspensive drop camp for trophy moose in the Canadian Shield, Dan is the one to go with.This was our second drop camp with Dan and the weather was great for calling. My brother took a heavy horned 41 inch moose at 40 yards, and I harvested a monster 50 inch bull on the last day of our week long hunt. Bear,wolf and fishing are an added bonus on the hunt.This place will capture your heart with it's beautiful lakes,northern lights,and big moose.

Utah Hunting Information

Utah has recently been outstanding for trophy elk, but the best tags take many years to draw. Utah does have conservation tags available for purchase that allow hunters to bypass the drawing. Given the high demand for these premium tags prices can be high. In the past Utah has been a top trophy mule deer state but recently only a handful of units consistently produce B&C caliber deer.

Alberta Hunting Information

Alberta is a large, diverse province with rolling prairies, farmland, river bottoms, Boreal forests, and large expanses of the northern Rocky Mountains. Many species of big game, waterfowl, upland game and predators inhabit Alberta. Long known for monster whitetails, Alberta also is home to big mule deer, pronghorn antelope, elk, black bear, cougar, Canada moose, and bighorn sheep. In fact, 7 of the 10 largest bighorn sheep in Boone and Crockett record book are from Alberta. In addition to big game, Alberta offers some top notch bird hunting. Serious waterfowlers know about the large flocks of ducks and geese that call Alberta home or migrate through.
