Can I create a raster from a LiDAR point cloud based on return number?

I am working with a Lidar point cloud to create a number of raster outputs. I would like to create a raster from either the number of returns (count) or the max return number- these two should be the same. I am working in ArcGIS 10.5 right now. In the LAS Dataset toolbar, I am able to view the points by return number. But in the tool "LAS Dataset to Raster", I cannot choose return number as the value field. Is this possible in ArcGIS? Or is there another program I should use?
