Quebec Caribou Hunts
Northern Quebec is the land of the caribou, masters of the tundra. Creatures which, by nature, shun the ordered patterns of life to range freely and follow the restless winds across barren tundra ridges. They’re magnificent animals, these Ungava caribou, especially the big, whitemaned bachelor bulls when, in late summer, they come down out of the hinterlands to claim their harems. Weighing some 350 pounds, these bulls proudly sport massive back-swept antlers that reach some four feet high with a spread which is often over five feet wide. They’re the most impressive caribou of North America, both in stature and numbers. According to a 2001 census conducted by government biologists. Quebec’s Ungava caribou herd has reached the 1,000,000 mark.
Quebec-Labrador Caribou hunts require careful planning and attention to detail. Our outfitters hunts are organized to provide our hunters with a memorable experience on the tundra. When you book a hunt with us, you know where you will be hunting with a maximum of eight hunters in camp. You can expect to relax and enjoy five full days of exciting caribou hunting, trout fishing and northern adventure.

Hunt Details and Prices
Semi-Guided Caribou Hunt (1 guide per 4 hunters)
Our Semi-Guided caribou hunts are intended for those hunters who wish to experience a more hands-on hunt with a one guide per four hunter ratio. Each day afield four hunters are accompanied by an experienced guide who organizes the day’s hunt for his group. Each guide has his own freighter canoe and motor which is very useful for travel to hunting areas and fishing hot spots. A hunter who books a Semi-Guided hunt should be able to field dress his caribou and help his guide pack his game off the land. Guides assist with caping and assure that all game is identified and stored in a screened meat house.
All camps operated by our outfitter provide hunters with solid oil heated sleeping accommodations and tasty meals prepared by a camp cook. Facilities include hot showers, generated electricity and satellite telephone communications. Each camp has a screened meat house and all materials necessary to pack game for homebound transportation. Each camp manager has small game, black bear and fishing permits for hunters who want to hunt ptarmigan, black bear or fish for trout. Our camps are organized for our hunters’ comfort and satisfaction.
