    CANADA: Quebec Caribou Hunt With Leaf River Lodge

    Great report! I see on the way up you took the 737 equipped for landing on gravel.....if I recall correctly, there are not many places in the world have these type of aircraft! We took one on our Mtn. Caribou hunt up to Norman Wells NWT. Pretty impressive when you think about it!! How were the...

    Why the extra cost on the charter to get out.....i don't get it? If you were done early and wanted to leave, i could see it, but...... Any word on how the other camp (Des Bergais) has been doing? Or, are they not hunting that camp this year.

    Checking the antlers....would have to ask the airline and see as they all differ. I would ask when you land. Not sure what they have on hand at Leaf River for wrapping the antlers. All depends on too when you get your bull (what day) and whether you'll have the time. Taxidermist....you may...

    Quebec Caribou Tips?

    Never had to do the 4457 on all the hunts I've been on in Canada. No one's ever asked....... On the Canadian form that you are talking about, i'm assuming it's the Canadian Firearm Declaration form? If it is, I got my butt chewed out a couple of times for filling it all out ahead of time and...

    On the muck boots, it depends on which ones you have.......insulated or not. I personally don't really care for the Muck boots.......seem to take forever to dry out if they get wet. My Meindl's are 400 gram Thinsulate and my feet were fine. Still wore some heavier socks at times though...

    Unfortunately no, I was not able to keep the velvet. You just touched the antlers and it came off!

    Quebec Caribou Tips?

    On the boots. I wore my insulated/Goretex Cabela's Meindl boots and they were fine. They can almost always land the boat in a good spot. Black bear tag. I would probably buy one if you have the chance. Especially if you are hunting out of the Leaf river camp. Not to say Des Bergais camp...

    Quebec Caribou Tips?

    Sorry for the delay. I'm at Wisconsin Dells with my wife and children. I would recommend Goretex or something like Sitka or Kuiu with layers. Don't bother with the Helly Hansen and Grundens type (PVC) as you will be doing a lot of walking and sweat to death. I like Sitka myself as it tends...

    Quebec Caribou Tips?

    I have hunted with Leaf River twice.....in 2013 & 2014. Both hunts were at different camps and both hunts were good, but i wouldnt say stellar. Weather and number of animals were a factor on both trips. Alain and Louis will do what they can to get you on the animals. I have hunted all 5 species...
