The following is my attempt to put many thoughts, experiences and memories into a concise yet easy to read statement that might scratch the surface of being able to portray what a great adventure and experience was had by my son and I on our hunts.  I am not a novice at guided hunts, I have hunted several states and have been guided on deer hunts in the south and a couple of "American Plan" Caribou hunts in Labrador.  I do have a Boone and Crockett Caribou at 399 & 5/8".
My experience at Ragged Lake Outfitters could not have been better, the initial meeting of the folks at the camp let you know you are not only welcomed but a valued guest.  It did not take long for me to feel as though I was portrayed, not a client but as an individual hunter who has experiences to share that what I had to share was important.  I feel as though I have made true friendships with Alden, Rick, Marie and the crew.
The expectations that I had were formed from what I was told prior to the hunt.  I went in taking it all "with a grain of salt" as they say, nothing is ever as good as what you are told.  I will state that this Outfitting Service stands behind what they have said, every aspect of the services  went above and beyond any expectation I could ever have had. 
The service is professional, the food was excellent and you could not have better company.  It is easy to tell when someone is doing a job or is doing something that they are passionate about, this group is passionate about all aspects of the hunt and the experience that the guest is having.  I guess the best thing I can do to show my appreciation and how much I valued this experience is to say that I will be back next year and will have others with me.  Thank you for the experience and the memories of a lifetime.
