Hunting With Moose Lake Outfitters

I have dedicated these past years to guiding and outfitting moose, black bear and mule deer hunts. My goal is to provide my guests with a quality big game hunt and an “unforgettable wilderness adventure”. Our proof of success is the number of hunters that return to hunt with us each season. Below are some testimonials that will give you more insight as to what hunting with us is all about. Read testimonials from some of our black bear and moose hunters or you can scroll through the list to read them all!

Rick, Deb, my wife, and I really enjoyed our time in your Moose Camp. The food and cook were great. Loved our little cabin, it was very comfortable. Chris, our guide was exceptional. I worked him very hard everyday and he was so agreeable. Chris was fun, knowledgeable, and quite talented when it comes to Moose calling. Chris worked really hard to make my hunt successful. My 46 1/2 “ bull topped off a great experience. Enjoyed every minute of this hunt. As outfitters go, Moose Lake Outfitters is the best!

There really aren't words to adequately describe the hunting experience I just had with Rick and his son Chris!  I had never hunted with a guide before, but I really did want some moose meat and I had not been able to get drawn in my home state of Montana.  I told Rick that big horns might be nice, but that meat was my objective.  On the third day of the eight-day hunt we found just what I wanted - a younger bull that will be tender!  From day one, Rick made it clear that my success was his utmost concern.  The huge smile on his face when that moose went down was worth the trip!  Rick's knowledge of moose, bear, wolves, and the terrain was amazing.  I learned so much.  The talk around the kitchen  table was lots of fun - we all shared hunting stories and learned from each other.  Besides the talk - the food was great, down-home country good!)  For this hunt, I was the only hunter at the campsite (last hunter of the season).  Besides Rick and his son, he also had three of his grandsons who were a source of great entertainment!  I saw game every day I was there, including a sow grizzly and her two cubs.  The bears ended up with the gut pile!  If you are looking for a memorable hunting experience with the best of outfitter and guides, you can't go wrong by choosing Moose Lake Outfitters! - October 16, 2021

Hunting with Rick and his son Chris was unforgettable. As much as I wanted to go into this hunt with zero expectations, that’s difficult to do when investing so much time and money into a bucket list hunt. But these two successfully exceeded every possible expectation that I had. Both are extremely knowledgeable and you’ll certainly never find an outfitter that covers all of the bases like Moose Lake Outfitters. The food was perfect and seemingly always available. I probably gained 5 pounds on this trip. Lol. Ricks wife even sent a cake to camp and we celebrated my 50th in style! Now that’s a detail that most outfitters would overlook without a second thought. But not these folks. These two even sang happy birthday to me along with my wife. Wow!
As for the actual hunting, The bear numbers were phenomenal with plenty of stalk opportunities. This is an amazing hunt for anyone that wants to check a box on their list or someone that wants to try hunting bear in a new place. My wife and I filled all 4 bear tags, saw the northern lights a couple of times and made 2 true friends for life in Rick and Chris and hoping they’ll come experience some of our wildlife soon.
We’re already thinking about the next opportunity to hunt with them.
Maybe moose and bear next time.
Thank you Rick and Chris!
PS no matter how many times that I’ve tried to put this trip into words, I just can’t seem to do it justice. World Class Hunt!!!!! Top Shelf Outfitters!!!

Sitting on the back porch reminiscing about our moose hunt. Rick Kamieniecki was a great guide and friend. His camp was in the middle of moose country. It was more comfortable than expected, we were lucky enough to have the company and cooking of his mother. His guides and him were very knowledgeable and accomplished back country hunters. The cherry on top was this beautiful bull moose we've enjoyed so much moose stew, moosghetti(as we like to call it), steaks and burgers that could knock your socks off. Thanks again Rick and Stan Newton for such a good time!

Rick,Thank you a lot for the hunting experience with you. I enjoyed the hunt very much.  Everything was great and just what you promised.  A fantastic experience. I cut the moose three days after harvesting with my friends in Ft. St. John and we get nearly 230 kg (460 lbs.) of meat. I tried moose burgers and some steaks on the barbecue and they were great.If you need any help/references for customers from Europe you can give them my contact details. Also contact me should you need a translation of your website into German.  Please send me some of the photos from the hunt to this eMail adress. Thank you and best regards from Germany,


Dear Rick. How are you, my friend. I just want you to know that I really enjoyed your company. We, Heine and I have really learned a lot about bear hunting. Your thoroughness in finding bears for us was absolutely fantastic. I just want to thank you for some exciting days with lots to fun and laughs particularly when Sean was in the shower ........ Redskin ..... Hope we can keep in touch and write together sometimes. Many friendly greetings

Rick, Thank you for an amazing hunt. My son Elijah and I had such a great experience. For both of us to get two bears each exceeded all of our expectations. Your knowledge of the area and where the bears were was so impressive. The memories made with my son will last our lifetime. And, we will definitely be back. Thanks again for everything. John & Elijah Keane St. Louis, Missouri   Take care!
