Top outfitter offers high success on Quebec Labrador caribou.

This hunt offers a consistently high success rate on bull caribou, and you can take two of them. The hunt is run by an outfit we've trusted since 1986. We've never known the owner to exaggerate success rates or make promises he couldn't keep. No other outfitter has produced as many record-class heads or has had as many hunters come back, and the reasons are self-evident when you understand the unique features of his hunt. First, he has 28 fully outfitted camps but books up no more than eight at a time. That means he has 20 camps where he can move your party if the unpredictable migrating caribou herds are out of range of your camp. This outfitter has camps that access both of the major caribou herds in Quebec, the Leaf River and George River herds. He keeps his own plane in the air many hours during the season to scout for animals. He hires English speaking guides and keeps satellite phones in each camp. He has consistently moved our customers when weather and aircraft conditions have permitted. According to reports we hear from hunters, some of the other outfitters seldom if ever move hunters despite their advertising. This outfit charges a bit more than some of the competition, but we think the price is justified. The caribou herd in Quebec is constantly changing its migration patterns, which means a specific hunting site could be excellent one year and poor the next, or great one week and devoid of animals the next week. Most outfitters have a limited number of camp sites, and sometimes there are no animals within easy walking or boating range. Our outfitter flies you into a camp that he thinks will produce caribou during your stay, but it's nice to know he'll move you if necessary. All Quebec outfitters, even those who hunt near Ungava Bay, are faced with unpredictable caribou movements. Some outfitters advertise unbelievably high success rates despite their inability to move hunters because of lack of planes, lack of caribou at at other camps, or the unavailability of extra. Also, some outfitters have been arrested for taking clients into areas where they were not permitted. Outfitters are not allowed to drop off customers wherever they please. Caribou taken on such hunts are not allowed in the record books and cannot be transported legally into the U.S. Some outfitters book so many people that they fill all their camps every week, even those prone to poor success. Our outfit has been in the business for more than 25 years and has more than 300 square miles in his area. There is a long list of what is included in the packages, feel free to call us. Hunter success is usually 75 to 90 percent and in good years even higher. Most years several bulls are big enough to make Boone and Crockett. If our outfitter moves you, he sometimes limits you to one caribou. Occasionally weather and aircraft conditions do not permit transporting hunters during their hunt. After you're moved to a new area, sometimes the hunt will be shortened, and services might be different than if you had been able to stay in your main camp. Hunts.Net customer report: "This is Joe Nowak from WI. Bill Reed and I booked a hunt through you with for an Aug. 12th caribou hunt. Just wanted to let you know that both Bill and I scored on two nice bulls each. Each of us took one with bow and one with rifle. The outfitter almost moved us because we weren't seeing anything until the third day. Man, are we glad he didn't. Both Bill and I saw over a thousand bulls in three days. All five guys in camp harvested two bulls. The outfitter and his family are good honest people."

Update: All 2011 hunts are on hold until provincial officials decide on the best way to help caribou numbers rebound. A closure of the 2011 is a possibility. Call or email if you want to be updated once the decision is made. Don't forget that some of Alaska's herds are doing very well.
