I can't say enough about this tour and Young's Guide Service!
August can be pretty tough to see moose, especially in the rain, with the threat of a lightening storm. Chris (the owner and our guide) was extremely up front about that - not wanting to disappoint our group that drove three hours just to get to Greenville for the safari. The storms were headed right towards the location the canoes are kept, so we stayed in the truck and took our safari on wheels rather than water.
We first saw a bull swimming in the middle of the lake and watched him as he approached shore, shook off the water and headed into the woods. Chris showcased his expert calling skills and got the bull to look back and head a few steps in our direction. Our second encounter surprised even Chris! We came across a young cow in the woods and were able to watch her run off into a more dense part of the area. It was certainly video-worthy!
Our group took to calling Chris "The Moose Hunter" (a la Steve "Croc Hunter" Irwin). He was so knowledgeable and enthusiastic about the area and the moose than we would have had a great time even if we hadn't seen a single one. It was definitely worth the long drive. I can't wait to schedule another safari!
