Woodland caribou.

If you are looking to kill a trophy class woodland caribou, look no further. Past clients have killed many book animals and many more are still on the hoof. Our outfitter has secured an additional nine tags for 2015.

Tags and openings are limited so booking far in advance is recommended. Hunting is based out of a lodge but one of the outfitter’s planes is always on hand to move hunter’s to more productive areas. The plan is to put you in an area where you will see a lot of animals and kill a true trophy not just an average bull.

Includes license, 1×1 guiding, meals, transportation to from airport or hotel, float plane transportation, trophy and meat preparation (de-boning).

Non-resident hunters must have a hunter’s education card or have a big game license from previous years. Youth hunters must be a minimum of 18 years old by August 31 of the year they will be hunting.

6 Day Hunt - $12,500 plus $675 for caribou license plus 7.5% tax on hunt and license.

12 Day Rut Hunt - $15,800 plus $675 for caribou license plus 7.5% tax on hunt and license.

12 Day Caribou / Moose / Black Bear - $19,900 plus $675 for caribou license, $510 for moose license, $150 for bear license plus 7.5% tax on hunt and licenses.

Quebec Labrador Caribou - Leaf River herd.

This outfitter has over 40 camps and normally hunts 6 camps per week. The camps that get used for any specific hunts are the ones that have caribou close by. The camps are located both above and below the 57th parallel in Nunavik, covering more of the migration route than any other outfitter.

Shot opportunity has run 90% -100% with the majority of hunters taking two bulls. Hunters of varying degrees of fitness can be accommodated. Camps normally consists of 6 hunters. Hunts are conducted from late August through early October. See the various packages / price ranges available below.

Hunters may also hunt for black bears and ptarmigan and fish for brook trout, lake trout, char and pike as part of their hunt. There are no extra costs associated with these activities other than the cost of the extra licenses which are shown below.

Trophy Hunt Package - $11,000 2×1 guided and $13,000 1×1 guided - held September 27 - October 3 only. The trophy caribou hunt is the ultimate caribou hunt for those of you who wish to put all odds in your favor. Much like the regular season guided caribou hunts, home cooked meals will be prepared daily by a designated camp cook. The Trophy Hunt will strictly be offered to 10 hunters and will take place after our other 5 hunting camps are closed down for the season allowing us the option to choose the very best hunting location, as well as to concentrate 100% of our efforts strictly on this small group of hunters (keeping in mind that normally we cater to 28-30 hunters per week during our regular season). The trophy caribou hunters will be flown directly into our most productive camp, which may be any one of our 40+ outpost camps regardless of the facilities. As an added bonus to choosing the trophy hunt, in the unlikely event that we would not feel 100% confident about the odds of success during that week, the hunt will simply be called-off and all of our hunters will be notified as early as possible and offered a 100% refund and/or the option to reschedule their hunts to the following year with absolutely no extra charge.

Fully Guided Hunt Package - $8400 2×1 guided and $9400 1×1 guided (7 days total - 5 ½ days of hunting) The 2×1 and 1×1 option is for those who want exclusive attention and a professional guide to carry out all the field work. On this fully guided caribou hunt, each pair of hunters is accompanied by a full time guide. The guide will transport hunters to crossings, help spot, stalk or put an ambush on the caribou. Once the caribou has been harvested, he will look after all of the field work including quartering, deboning, caping and packing it out.  Just sit back and relax after an adventurous day of hunting while your camp cook prepares and serves delicious home-made meals! This package offers upgraded accommodations including hot and cold running water. Experience the Northern tundra with all the essential elements of home!

Semi-Guided Hunt Package - $7400 for 4×1 and $7900 for 3×1  (7 days total - 5 ½ days of hunting).  The 1×3 and 1×4 semi guided options are geared towards those who don’t require a guide by their side 100% of the time, but would like some guidance in the field along with having most of the field work done by a professional guide. With this guiding service, the guide will divide his time among his group of 3 or 4 hunters. He will provide transportation to caribou crossings and some guidance with selecting a trophy, as well as help complete the field work once the caribou has been harvested. One pack frame per two hunters is recommended. Food and cook is also provided.

Unguided Hunt Package - $6400 1 guide/6 hunters (7 days total - 5 ½ days of hunting). The unguided option is for those who have sufficient hunting experience to go-it-alone and are physically capable of doing so. A guide / caretaker will be at camp to scout the area for caribou and provide transportation for guests. This option allows for greater mobility from camp to camp if relocation is required. This package does not include a cook at camp. All meals will be prepared and frozen at base camp. Take pride in accomplishing all aspects of the hunt on your own with the outfitter who provides the best opportunity for success! (A cook can be added to this camp for $500 / person).

Unguided Drive Up Hunt Package - $4500 - Much the same as the unguided 6×1 package, except the hunters must provide their own food, and rather than flying up to base camp on a charter flight from Montreal, guests take the adventurous drive up to the float plane base in Caniapiscau.
