And now a few words from our guests...

We’ve had a fantastic hunting trip once again. As always the food, friends [old & new] were fantastic. Our guide Russel was wonderful, knowledgeable and just a great guy to hunt with. We enjoyed our entire time. Thanks to Anna, Deb, Dick, Jason for everything. I won’t forget our day trip with Si and Rose, picking berries, scouting for bears. He gave us an education as did we Vise Versa… Thanks for everything.

Had a great time again, hate to leave. Food was good and I think that I gained weight. Can’t wait to come back. My cheeks are still sore from laughing. Feels like I’m leaving my family.
— Bruce
What a fine place to be, good food, friends, and fun. I thank Jason who guided us – what a guy. The cooks Anna and Deb, wonderful ladies. Lots of good things to say about this place
— Kenny
Had a great week of hunting. I was able to get a moose on Wednesday, Thank you Si for showing me some beautiful county. Food was great, going home a few pounds heavier.
— Derrick
Thanks for the awesome time! The camp!, the family. the nature, and the moose were all in harmony this week. We appreciate all of the hospitality and warmth provided. Sandy Lake Lodge is the best, looking forward to a return trip with my children.
— Scott
Came here with my husband, Allan, who came 5 years ago and wanted so much to come back. It was a beautiful trip up and a beautiful place here. I will be returning home with my favourite meat and lots of memories. Anna & Debbie you are the best. The food and other hunters have been wonderful. I’ll hope to pass my test next time around with Si, I learned so much from him and thought he was just wonderful. So glad that I got to experience another hunt in Newfoundland with Sandy Lake Lodge.
— Allan & Rose
After enduring one of the most difficult weeks of hunting [weather], they kept at it-keeping me going. Finally on the last day of my stay and in the last hour, I was able to connect on a beautiful bear. They would not let me give up and I am grateful. Thanks guys.
— Jim
Lodge extra special, what I saw on the web doesn’t do it justice. It’s much more than I ever thought. Scenery suburb, saw lots of it with Carl and yourself. Fishing unreal, I’m sure I caught hundreds. No one will ever believe my stories once I get home. I’m sure your moose blinds will be pleasing to your hunters, they are excellent. Hospitality was excellent. While here saw moose, caribou and a dead bear.
— Donnie
I had a great time. Saw plenty of game. With help from Sandy, I was able to harvest a Bull Moose and a Black Bear. Thank you for a great time, with good food and friendly atmosphere. I hope to see you soon.
— Mike
Killed a moose, saw several others and a bear, caught fish had a great time and will definitely try to get back again.
— Joe
Thank you for a wonderful trip. It was everything you said and more. You gave each and every one of us that special care that makes for a great trip. The guides were wonderful and always treated us with the greatest of respect. Thank you for a great trip and I hope to see you soon.
— Joe
This hunt was a fulfillment of a lifelong dream and was 6 years in the preparation. To say it satisfied my expectations would be an understatement. Killed a 6 point bull at the end of the first day. The country is breathtaking and daunting at the same time. The most important part of any operation are the people, to that end, Sandy Lake Lodge, has some of the best! Very accommodating, will do the utmost to satisfy your needs and desires. 100% output for them is just the beginning . God is truly in this place.
— Bill
When I booked this trip, I was wondering if all aspects of the trip would come together as it was planned. Well thanks to the fine folks that run this Lodge, this has been the hunt of a life time for me. My hats off to Sandy for putting me on my moose and to Anna for the great meals that she cooked. WHAT AN EXPERIENCE! And a special thank you to Dick for his persistence to find a way to make the conclusion of this trip possible.
— Tom
The Lodge was way nicer in person. The view was amazing. Dick guided me for two days and we saw four caribou. Brian guided me for a day and we saw a cow moose. The last day Dick took me in a new place. The dream hunt was on. I ended up with a 18 point bull 1000lbs plus. This to me was a dream hunt. The Lodge was awesome, food awesome , guiding awesome and I had my Dad the whole trip with me. Thank you Dick.
— Dwaine
We travelled 1857 miles from home to hunt moose and bear. The trip was well worth it! Dick, Sandy and Jason did a great job of hosting us and guiding us. We are delighted with our results and got a lot of good pictures besides two nice moose [ 2, 8 pointers]. Thanks for the great job guys and hope to see or hear from you in the future.
— Dick & Randy
Nice hunt seen 5 moose, 3 bulls 2 cows. Killed a 10 pt. Nice people. Everything went well, everybody should have a hunt and meet the gang. Hope to see you next year. Thanks.
— Darryl
Had a real nice hunt, got 8 pt bull just what I wanted, was hunting for meat. Had good guides, Sandy and Chris John. Saw 5 moose – 3 bulls – 1 cow – 1 calf also saw 9 caribou [1 big stag] 1 black bear, 1 coyote, 7 geese, 4 rabbits. Sandy Lake Lodge has some of the best accommodations I ever been in. The food was great, had really good cooks. The rest of the hunters was the best kind. Jason & Dick are real nice people too. See ya next time. ATV riding was really good.
— Brian
I had a bow hunt at Sandy Lake Lodge that will be impossible to top in a lifetime. Everybody from the guides to the guests were wonderful. This was all topped by having a bull walking within 10 feet for a perfect shot. You could hear him grunting with every step. What a thrill, what a close encounter on the 8 pt. Thanks.
— Joe
We had a great hunt. After traveling over 1300 miles to get here. We each got a nice moose and it was good to see Sandy & ChrisJohn. Dick & Jason were great to us and it was a pleasure to hunt with them. Can’t wait until we can come back. They go out of their way to make your hunt pleasurable. Thanks again.
— Bruce & Wayne
Just want to say Thank You for a wonderful week that will always hold special memories. I was so happy when my 95 year old Mother got her moose. WOW! We all had a wonderful time, thanks again.
— Ronna Churchill
We had a great time again. You know we said we had to do this once in our lives, well this is our 4th trip to the Island and you’ll probably see us again. Our many thanks to Dick, Anna, Debbie and Sy, they always treat us like family. The food is always good and they go above and beyond to make sure you have a good trip. I highly recommend them.
— Bruce Chagnon
Even with the warm weather, the week turned out to be one of our best . Each time they get better. I’m sure we’ll be back. Good Luck on the Barn.
— Wayne Marsh
Can’t believe a whole week has gone by so quickly. While Frank was busy hunting, I was busy making some new fabulous friends. This truly was an enjoyable time, lots of stories, hearty laughs and ooohhhh the food!! It’s so nice to walk into a room full of strangers and feel so “at ease” and welcomed. Worries are forgotten and an aura of friendship and safety completely surrounds you. We’re so thankful to everyone for all the hospitality and look forward to returning again, God Bless you all.
— Frank & Judy Rowter
This was my first time here and not the last. I didn’t know what to expect but everyone made my father and I feel right at home. As far as the hunting, it was the best experience I could ever have. It’s definitely my dream hunt. I’ve always wanted to do a long range shot, and when I saw that moose drop after I pulled the trigger, it was just unreal and I just want to thank you Dick for the hunt of a lifetime.
