wow!!! yes big difference!!!! we met some guys(young) from NY that hunted up there and said it was tuff going! one thing I did learn on my first trip and it will be different on my next is; its my hunt and I paid a lot of money for it! nothing against the outfitter or the guides, they bust their butts to make sure you go home with a moose and they are great people, but I don't care about success rates and things of the such. shooting a moose with my flintlock is the number one priority for me and they understand that now. if I come home without a moose because of the weapon I choose to carry I am good with that! all I want is the chance. I passed a 190 yard shot on the second morning because of the lack of daylight and I was good with that and I feel at that point the guide had done his job, period. if I would have had a center fire it would have been a done deal, not his fault. we have an understanding now and they are crystal clear on what I want. we will also get a bear license next time! I can't wait to get back up there!!
