Overall Impression: Poor

This is the poorest guided hunt I have ever been on. First, the hunts were overbooked. There were way too many hunters in the camps, and the hunting in too many of the camps was extremely poor. Second, many times there were too many hunters assigned per guide. We paid for a three-on-one hunt. The first three days there were six hunters per guide. Third, the two hunters I went with were sent to another camp after two days. I didn't get to go with them because I had harvested a "mature" bull. They went to a camp with more caribou. It was overcrowded! Fourth, we were lied to. Our luggage, which had our ammunition and warms clothes, did not arrive on time for the flight to Kuujjuaq. The representative in Montreal assured us that as soon as it got to Kuujjuaq, it would be flown to our camp. It sat in Kuujjuaq for a day and half before being sent to our camp. We were deprived of two full days of hunting. Finally, our camp manager and head guide was obviously frustrated by the number of "new" hunters arriving at his camp. The reason for this frustration was that he knew it was merely a staging area; there were few to no caribou there! There were many problems with communications before our hunt. The organizational skills of this outfitter need a lot of work. In conclusion, there are many more minor reasons why this trip was a bust. I will never again ever consider using this outfitter!!!
