  • UPDATE ON QUEBEC’S CARIBOU HERD
    herds in Northern Quebec that are estimated at present to be 68 000 or so for the George River Caribou and approximately 275 000 for the Leaf River Caribou With over 400 000 sq miles of caribou range estimating numbers is more like guessimating Biologist estimate a variable of or 30 on the numbers quoted Some of the more important changes are as follows Restricting winter hunts to antlerless caribou only up to 75 reduction in some areas in available tags for winter hunting hunts start December 1 to reduce the targeting of bull caribou in November For the Leaf River Caribou Herd that we hunt hardly any changes except for a reduction of Fall tags by 25 and a reduced season by 6 weeks now running August 15 to October 02 For the George River Herd more serious Hunt tags cut by 50 for the 2011 season and 2012 season closed Conclusion With an estimate of approximately 343 000 caribou or 30 in the North and with all indications that the caribou are stabilizing and are definitely in better shape than they were a few years ago I do believe the caribou are doing well These past few seasons has produced some of the nicest caribou that we have seen in many years With the measures taken to reduce hunting pressure in the future we are expecting to see some serious big caribou taken in the coming seasons by our hunters from the Leaf River Herd The largest trophy caribou ever taken in Northern Quebec were taken in the late 70 s and early 80 s when the caribou were not over populated and their numbers where closely comparable to present levels As with other species high numbers in the population generally produces inferior quality in respect to trophy

  • Greetings from the North
    community certainly look forward to harvesting caribou when the opportunity arises We experienced a great past 2010 season and reports from the field indicated that our hunters saw more caribou then ever and the caribou seemed bigger than usual particularly in their antler formation We experienced steady caribou from August 19 to October 02 with most of the concentration being in our more northerly camps Our easy access to the Leaf River Caribou Herd certainly makes all the difference in providing successful hunts for our hunters At present I still have a limited number of spaces available for the upcoming 2011 season Based on the current condition of the caribou in Northern Quebec there is a strong indication that caribou hunting in Arctic Quebec in the near future will become more and more restricted This will in effect reduce the opportunity to collect the Quebec Labrador Caribou species and increase the hunt rates considerably If you have been planning a Quebec caribou hunt in the future I would strongly suggest you planning on going sooner verses latter this is the last call We still have two Muskoxen tags available for this coming season The hunt will be conducted from the Village of Kuujjuaq during the month of March 2011 This is a relatively successful and enjoyable hunt traveling from the village by snowmobile This is a limited opportunity hunt to take a big Muskoxen Be one of the very few hunters to take a Quebec Muskoxen Hunt rate all inclusive from Montreal 11 800 00 We will be off to the shows early next month and look forward to meeting our many friends and clients At this time I take this opportunity in wishing you and yours the very best in the upcoming New Year Sammy Cantafio Professional Hunter Guide

  • Caribou Season
    some great Salmon fishing A big run of big males moved in during the high tides of August and offered fabulous dry fly action on the surface The fish averaged 7 to 9 pounds with a good many in the 10 to 15 pound range Char now entering the lakes and Peter our manager at North Camp reports a good number of big char have arrived at the lower rapids Caribou coming in steady from the North with some animals making a 180 degree turn and heading back North and others keeping steady to a Southern course Word is we have not seen the last of them and a good bunch of mainly bulls are heading our way Caribou are certainly a strange bunch of critters that can t always make up their minds on what direction they will be taking from one day to the next But so far it looks like we are going to have a great season All the Best Sammy Cantafio Kuujjuaq Quebec Last Updated on Monday 07 September 2009 05 43 Profile Login Username Password Save log in sign up need to reset your password E mail forget your username E mail name Username
