    terrible so we decided to leave immediately for a camp that Allen secured approximately an hour s snowmobile ride north of the village We quickly unpacked and set up camp and with light still available decided to go out and take a look We came across over 20 Muskox within an hour s ride from camp With darkness fast approaching we got back to a warm camp had supper and spent a good part of the night listening to John snoring boy was he relaxed after a good day out in the cold but well dressed The next morning with threatening skies we proceeded northbound in the same general directions that we traveled the previous day and immediately got into Muskox Out of a herd of 15 animals with 3 excellent bulls John took the best of the bunch and was all done by noon on day one of our hunt After taking pictures and having lunch we proceeded back to camp not before seeing a nice big bull on a ridge with his group of 12 animals A short walk up the hill with Allen had me sighted in to a very good bull well clear of his group and took my first Muskox at about 3 00 PM Picture taking and more snacks had us back at camp packing as we could see the weather changing quickly from the east yes it was time to head back to town before the winds and whiteout hit us We got back into town by 6 00 PM to a hot meal great shower and an evening of celebration It is a hunt that I will long remember a hunt that everyone should do once in their life By the way this was John s second Muskox John had taken a

  • Greetings from the North
    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
