Anyone ever gone with them?
Never even heard of them.

I’m surprised by that..... he’s been around a looong time.
Last August. I got a great sheep and a giant caribou. Rifle kills and I'm not sure they would be my first choice with a bow. They were top notch to deal with and I will be back in a few years.
When I was doing my research I heard great things about them and not so great things about them. Hit and miss is the gist of what I could glean.
My conclusion was that Chris has run a good outfit for many, many years but that it is slipping some as the years go by.
I went another direction.
Hunted with him once. I wouldn’t go back if you paid for the hunt!

Some good videos on YouTube of their hunts. Just do a search.
Thanks to everyone that sent pms. Nick I've seen the videos, just like bowsiters opinions. And just as I expected, some great, some good, some fair and 1 bad that I have not received a pm from yet. In the end all I'm looking for is an opportunity and being in that part of the world. It's a hunt, there are no guarantees. I don't want or expect luxury.
check out Ceaser Lake Outfitters in the Yukon. Three of us all got P and Y moose. Great area, great guides.
I did a rifle hunt with Blackstone - Had a great hunt and experiance with Jim Fink and family.
