Mr. young took us via his truck from our hotel to a small pond near Moosehead Lake. It proved to be a perfect time (5am) and place (very private and quiet) to watch moose feeding. We saw two moose on the way to the water and was able to watch one moose feed for almost an hour on the lake.... More

Not only is Chris professional and knowledgeable but he's friendly and fun too! This was our first Moose safari and we didn't know what to expect. Chris surpassed all our expectations in the breathtaking north Maine woods. He really cares about your experience and goes out of his way to make sure you're comfortable and safe, educating you as you... More

Chris is a wonderful guide and very informative of the area. We did the private tour (four of us, two kids, two adults) and saw a porcupine, wild turkey, and an approximate 700 lb 2-3 year old male moose. He was about 100 yards from us and we followed him in the canoes and watched him for about an hour.... More

Chris Young knows his Maine back-country and going out with him you will not be disappointed. Although on our early morning moose tour we were only able to see one moose, the 5am canoe trip produced an amazing sunrise and serene scenery. Chris's knowledge about the area, the wildlife, and the environment were interesting and informative. He really takes his... More

Our daughter surprised us with a Chris Young moose safari for my husband's birthday. Due to the overcast weather Chris picked us up at our cabin and took 3 of us in his truck for an incredible evening. We saw 13 moose and various other animals and Chris's knowledge of the area and wildlife enhanced a wonderful experience. We would... More

Chris Young is a very polite young man and knows his moose. My mother and I had a very good time. We only saw 4 moose this day but it was very enjoyable to see them via canoe! So peaceful out on the pond at 6am. We also saw loons and blue herons on our trip. Chris' parents run Wilson... More

We hired Chris for a personal "moose safari" during our recent camping experience at Moosehead Lake. Chris's personal touch, his knowledge and passion for his work made this "safari" more than memorable. We took his AM safari so met him at 5:00 AM. As soon as he pulled up he noticed a moose "looking in our car" as we waited!... More

This trip was awesome... What a great experience for the whole family. This is a private tour for just your family. Chris picks you up at your hotel and then the adventure begins... Chris was knowledgable and you could tell he loved his job. This trip is not about seeing 20 moose in 3 hours it is about having that... More

Our moose safari with Chris Young provided all the adventure we were seeking during our visit to the north woods of Maine. Chris has an excellent knowledge of the geography north of Greenville and amazing ability to spot moose deep in the woods. We saw a total of 10 moose during our evening safari including one very large bull moose... More

Chris did a great job of getting us in close proximity to Multiple moose and positioning us to take pictures. He was also a great source of information about the animals and the local area.
