Yukon Big Game Outfitters
I'll be hunting archery moose with YBGO in '17. If you have hunted with YBGO, please send me your thoughts on pros/cons - dos/don't dos - based on your experience there, i.e. boat hunt vs lake hunt vs horse hunt, etc.
Feel free to send me a private message.
Thanks in advance.
I hunted caribou and moose last Sept.
Good experience. Give me a call and we can talk details.
I've known Shawn Raymond for 16 years. He used to own Coal River Outfitters. You'll have a good hunt. The monster moose are there that's for sure and those guys know how to kill them. Tell Shawn Joe Ferraro said hello.
I'm booked with them 9-25 thru 10-4 2017. What dates are you hunting? If you have not already give Russell a call, he will give you some good info. I did a lot of research and Shawn and Sandra Raymond(YBGO) are who I chose! Good Luck!!!
Russell - Thank you for the great information.
Mule Power - Will do.
Greg - I'm hunting 9-15 thru 9-25.
Good deal. Maybe we will cross paths coming in and out. If you leave any big ones for me be sure to save GPS coordinates!!!
I don't see a lot of web sites for the higher end moose hunts posting their prices.......
Would 20 grand from my door to the hunt and back home cover a Yukon hunt ?? I'm talking the whole shooting match...... Airlines.......tags......expenses,,,,,right down to the tip.........and getting some meat home.......
Just trying to get an idea if a Yukon moose hunt would be an affordable retirement present to myself in 4 years......
Does anyone have any info on Brad Fry or Don Lind with McMillan River Outfitters ?? Don Guided me to a B&C Bear in 1998 in Alberta....and I would hunt with him again in a HEARTBEAT..... I've seen both of them guiding moose hunts on T.V.
Higher end doesn't always mean higher success. I'm not sure what a moose hunt goes for today but would guess it's close to $20k in most spots. I can tell you when I was at shawns ybgo I saw lots of moose and the continue to harvest monsters every year. Some guys will book a caribou hunt and extend it and pay trophy fees for other animals but I would still suggest booking during the rut for moose. You won't be disappointed going to the Yukon or with Shawn
