Fellow HPA Members:
When I learned of the Eastern Sports and Outdoor Show pulling the plug, I contacted the outfitters that I book for that were scheduled to go there and offered to help them sell some hunts. I told them I would cut my commission and asked if they could offer a discount on their end too so that we could offer some appealing options.
At the bottom of the post, I also listed some hunts from non-ESOS outfitters. Unless noted otherwise, all hunts below include meals, lodging and guiding.
Click on the underlined hunt titles for the link to our website with more details and photos of that hunt. For prompt replies to questions, please call or email versus posts or pm's.
Quebec Caribou - Hunt #59-C -
Many would argue that this is the best caribou hunt in Quebec. I can offer a group of 6 a $500 discount per hunter making the cost for 1 guide per 3 hunters $7000 and 1 guide for 6 hunters $5500. If you are thinking that is a lot of money consider what is included in the packages. These packages are pretty much all inclusive from Montreal and include: licenses for 2 caribou, charter flight from Montreal with 70lbs of gear, float plane into camp, any moves with the float planes, all meals while at camp prepared by camp cook (1x6 hunt does not include a cook but does include meals), English speaking guides and much more click on link for all the details. If you have less than 6 people, I may be able to combine smaller groups to hit 6.
