We had a tour with Chris on a weekday morning in late July and were quite worried about not being able to see moose. We saw eight moose that morning! He brought us to some places that he had not visited for a while and it paid off, we hit the moose jackpot! We reccommend Young's to anyone who wants... More

Chris gave us a great trip in every way. He's very personable and knowledgeable. He spotted 15 moose. One of the bulls had huge, beautiful antlers and was exciting to see. He also showed us a scenic view of the surrounding mountains and valleys. I recommend Young's Guide Service whole heartedly.

My husband and I had the great pleasure of looking for moose in Greenville with Chris Young. Chris was incredible; his sheer love of moose and the area was very evident. We were fortunate to find nine moose, even though the timing in September was not the best. We would absolutely go with Chris again, and hope to in the... More

Chris picked my Grandpa, Grandmere, and I up at 5:00 AM and we spent about three hours seeking moose. It was terrific! We saw 12 moose, 8 cows, 2 bulls, a yearling, and a calf! Chris took tons of back roads, used his moose call, answered all our questions, and helped us with photographs. I/we would recommend Chris and for... More

Being from Boston, it has been my husband's life long dream to see a moose in person. So I surprised my husband with a private moose safari for our 10th anniversary. Chris came highly recommended by everyone in town and he didn't disappoint. He picked us up at our lodge promptly and although we booked a canoe trip he told... More

In our last ditch effort to catch a glimpse of Moose while on vacation we booked the last opening on a Friday morning trip. We were blessed with a beautiful morning and doubly blessed with sighting eight moose. We will most definitely use his services again, not just for Moose but also fishing.

Thank you for the great experience looking for moose. We enjoyed the experience despite the rain. Chris definitely does have the knowledge and skill for finding moose! We had expected to go out on a canoe, but on Chris's recommendation of expecting to see more moose in the wooded areas, we traveled to different areas in his SUV. We did... More

I went on 2 guided individual tours with Chris. Chris is from the area and knows where to find the wildlife. I wanted to get photos of moose and loons. He took me in a canoe where I could get close to get my shots. He was passionate and down to earth. Would highly recommend Chris as a guide!

We chose to take a tour with Chris based on the rave reviews - we were not disappointed! He is so passionate and truly loves what he does - he made the whole adventure really special. Not only did we see moose (6 total - 4 cows and 2 calves, some of them up close and personal), but we learned... More

We'd chosen Chris as we wanted a smaller, more personal moose safari than some of the larger outfits, and he didn't disappoint. Our reservation was dealt with by Beth, and she answered all our questions promptly. Chris arrived on time to collect us from the lodge and let us know that we would be taking a jeep safari rather than... More
