Overall Impression: Average

Our group of thirteen took 26 nice bulls,but there were some serious problems with the management of this operation. This is difinitely a hurry up and shoot operation. We were told to shoot the first bulls we encountered and given a timeline of two days to do it and were threatened to be moved if we didn't shoot. The outfitter lost three hunters bags going into the camp and couldn't find them for three days. He had only two camps that were active with caribou and was pushing people through at a cyclic rate. At one time there were 24 hunters in a camp set up for 12. There was no increase in guides or staff to accomodate the extra hunters. This turned into a pretty much self-guided situation once all those hunters started getting caribou. The guides were very unhappy and vocal on their displeasure with the management. We were charged $130 for processing two caribou and upon arrival in Montreal the meat and antlers were not there. The majority of our group is at this time trying to get the outfitter to ship our meat and horns to us. All this being said, we lucked out and got into an active camp and saw and took some really nice animals but it was a fight the entire trip. If your just a shooter and not a hunter then you probably could weather this outfitter, hunters you'll be really disappointed.
