STILL A COUPLE SPOTS OPEN
QUEBEC-LABRADOR CARIBOU HUNTS

2013 proved to very successful. He had 150 hunters and 146 scored on at least one bull and most took two. 6 black bears were also taken during the hunts. In 2012 they hosted 170 hunters and 165 took home bulls and 90 percent of those took home 2. They had over 20 bowhunters and all scored on bulls, including a Boone and Crockett record book bull. 3 bears were also taken last fall.

They have 27 camps and typically only take enough hunters to fill 4 for any particular week.  This gives them numerous locations to move hunters if the caribou sightings are down. This outfit has purchased additional camps north of the 57th parallel giving them the unique availability to hunt both north and south of the 57th, increasing the odds considerably to access caribou. They offer a couple hunt packages, ALL FAIR CHASE.

  1. 1x6 (with cook) $6700.00 – 1. Room for 3 the week of 08/28-09/03 2. Room for 6 the week of 09/21-09/27.

  2. 1x4 (with cook) $7200.00 – 1. Room for 3 the week of 09/15 –09/21 2. Room for 4 the week of 09/21-09/27.

  3. 1x3 (with cook) $7700.00 – 1. Room for 6 the week of 09/21-09/27.

ELEPHANT HUNTS ON THE BOTSWANA BORDER ONLY $38,000 ALL INCLUSIVE EXPECT TO CLOSE IN 2015

One of our South Africa PH’s acquired this 70,000 private-acre lease along the South Africa/Botswana border a couple years ago with 5 elephant permits. Success has been 100 percent on bulls averaging in the 35 to 45 pound range, with top end reaching about 55 pounds. We expect the hunting in this area to close in 2014 or possibly 2015, due to a large mining operation start up. This is a 10-day hunt priced at a very reasonable $38,000 all inclusive and at press time there were 2 permits available for 2014.

Hunting methods are glassing from high spots and covering country by vehicle looking for fresh tracks then hiking. The last 2 hunters tagged out in 4 days and 6 days. Hunts normally take place in August and September with the ranch providing 5-star accommodations. Expect to see about 200 elephants over the course of 10 days. Hippos can also be taken in this area. Hunt ELLD.
