Does DEET help with the flies? I got a couple headnets, but was hoping to not need them. I got a spray bottle & wipes with repellent.For me it wasn't mosquitoes it was black flies.
They would crawl between sleeves and gloves and bite your wrists. Take a bug net and what ever you have to help.
Would you mind posting some pics of the mount? I fly in on United & out on Canadian Airlines. I think they are affiliated but not sure they'd know the answer for the other airline. I can ask. Luckily I got a direct flight back to Denver from Montreal, so the meat doesn't have to take more than one flight. Thanks for the info. I've got to sign off, load the gear in the truck, & get some sleep for the 4am wakeup call to make the early flight!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 like his work. I'm kinda picky. Plus, mine had to have the velvet stripped and then they stained the antlers. Antlers got all blotchy....was never given a heads up on that.
But then I see you're already back! congratulations!My recommendation is to definitely think about global rescue insurance. I don't know if you've even seen northern Quebec on a map but it is one of the most beautiful but secluded places on the east coast.
I went walleye fishing in Monet a few years ago. We drove to the train station, then took a 6 hour train ride north. We passed exactly one lumber town on that 6 hour ride through wilderness. At the Monet train stop (literally a two story house by the side of the road.) We got off and road on a utility vehicle for an hour to our cabin.
If you broke your leg or had a serious accident, without an emergency airlift, you'd be dead before you could get medical attention.
But it is GORGEOUS country and a trip I won't forget! Also, depending on what time of year it is... BRING BUG SPRAY. Those were some of the worst black flies, mosquitoes, deerflies and horseflies I have ever encountered.
