Overall Impression: Very impressed, would do again

The hunt with High North and Kevin Mattice was a great experience. The guides worked hard and were quite knowledgable. The camp was very clean, well organized and stocked with all the supplies/equipment required for a successful hunt. High North a smaller operation than others with which I am familiar in Northern Quebec thus enabling them to treat hunters as people and not numbers. Eight hunters in a camp set up to accommodate eight hunters. No false promises of \\\"relocating\\\" in the event of no game. It\\\'s logistically impossible to make this promise in the Nunavik. There simply are not enough licensed bush pilots/planse to potentially move several hundred hunters a week. Remember, you\\\'re hunting migrating animals that may be 3 or 300 miles away! Although advertised success rates may run high, it\\\'s still caribou hunting, not caribou shooting! All eight hunters \\\"tagged out\\\" with one exception. He chose not to take a second bull. Two Safari Club records book animals taken in our camp! Saw lots of other game as well, shot Willow Ptarmigan, caught Lake Trout, Brook Trout and Char. I\\\'ve also been there and seen nothing in a weeks time. That\\\'s hunting! If you want a quality experience and as good a chance to see/take a nice caribou as anyone else can offer, call High North. Most importantly, everything was 100% AS ADVERTISED!!!
