"I was very pleased with Ben’s services on this project. The project achieved its objectives and was completed on schedule and budget. Ben’s level of customer service, project governance and positive attitude was exceptional. Ben proactively kept me informed of project status and issues. When making decisions and managing the team, Ben focused on the project objectives and our requirements. He responded to all my information requests in a positive and timely manner."

"Pilot (Ben Berukoff) and net gunner (Matt Strebchuk) were excellent. The terrain was steep, treed and rugged with no snow cover which made for very challenging capture conditions. We were very impressed with both the flying and animal handling from these individuals. Their team was professional, experienced and demonstrated good judgment during capture events. We will be completing the second phase of capture this winter and hope that Canadian Wildlife Capture will bid again. It would be our pleasure to work with them again."
