Overall Impression: Fair

My 1999 experience was very similar to Carey Brickell's. I was in a group of five that was rushed to camp so we could hunt the first afternoon, as we were supposed to. When we got to camp, all of the guides were guiding other hunters who were allowed to stay an extra day (which I didn't mind) or hunting for themselves (which I did mind). Our group got two caribou the next day and several more opportunities for the bowhunters. Then the caribou were gone. We hunted two more days with no opportunities. I feel we were lucky to be in a group, because we were able to pressure them to move us to a hot camp. Four of our group plus nine other hunters moved into the camp with 1.5 days left to hunt. All 13 tagged two good bulls each in less than 24 hours. The guides were very busy packing, which meant we were self-guided after the first couple of caribou. At no time did we have less than 5 hunters per guide, although we paid for 3 to 1. I didn't mind helping the guides pack and load the meat and horns. I DID mind when my horns and half of my meat did not get to the motel in Montreal. After much talk and letters, Safari Nordik sent me meat to replace what they lost. I HAVE NEVER GOTTEN MY HORNS, ONE OF WHICH WAS VERY GOOD, NOR ANY COMPENSATION FROM THEM FOR LOSING THEM!!! I BOOKED THE HUNT THROUGH BLAIR WORLDWIDE HUNTING IN FLAGSTAFF, AZ, AND HAVE GOTTEN VERY LITTLE HELP FROM THEM RECOVERING MY ANTLERS! LET THE BUYER BEWARE! If anyone is considering legal action against these guys, I would like to hear from you.
