    I'm wanting to put together a 2006 Caribou hunt in Quebec. I would like for a bunch of guys from the forums to get together for this so we can all meet and have some fun.
    If anyone is interested let me know.

    Where are you planning to go and when with who?

    Todd,

    Interested to hear what the numbers are.
    I assume that you can take to "boo-boos" during the hunt?

    I asked about getting to the migration as I have heard way to many horror stories about guys sitting in a camp waiting for somthing to happen that never does...

    Ric, I know all the stories also, I can personally vouch for Marc. He is a good man and will take care of us. He is in camp now for the next about month so will have to get with him when he gets back.

    buffalobob,
    We caught 7-10lb lake trout all you wanted when we did go fishing, we hit them real good on Northern King 4-d Black and silver. The Daredevil in black and white silver back did very well also. Don't be afraid to get a lure too big these fish are hungry. The fishing closes Sept 7th up there if you are planning to bring back the 3 fish limit.
    I enjoy fishing as much as the hunting almost, they wwanted $125 per person to fly us to the 5# brookies, we needed 3 people and I could not get any other folks to go. We had a plane available to us that took care of flying the butcher, fuels, supplies between camps and the front shoulders to the village as you are limited to 130# to fly out with. (4 hinds, 4backstraps, 2 racks, 1 cape, some fish and 10 ptarmigan.
