This is a first class Quebec caribou hunting outfitter.
You will be hunting the famous George River Herd, and Leaf river Herd in the tundra of northern Quebec, Canada.
This outfitter is focused on quality, so they have kept their operation fairly small. Most caribou hunting outfitters run their operations like a factory, just shoving hunters through the system. With 21 hunting camps, their hunting territory almost covers the entire migration pattern of the George River Herd and the Leaf River Herd.
Quebec Caribou Hunting Season and Information:
Depending on the caribou hunting package you choose, you could be hunting anytime from June through September. Caribou can be a great way to start your hunting season.
In September, temperatures should be between 40° to 50°F during daytime, sometimes with wind. After mid-September, there may be some snow, wind and/or cold rain. Dress warmly and do not forget gloves and warm waterproof boots.
Caribou are constantly on the move and your key to success is mobility so you can intercept the migration. This is where hiring a good outfitter comes in. If the caribou aren’t cooperating, you have two options: move to another camp, or charter one of the outfitters’ float planes to fly you to the herd daily. Ask one of our agents for details.

Success Rates and Trophy Quality
The success rates on these Quebec caribou hunts are very high. Typically close to 100% on most years. Trophy quality is also very good, in fact the World Record Quebec Labrador Caribou came out of the George River Herd.
Hunters usually purchase a black bear license in addition to a caribou for their hunt. If a black bear is harvested, there is a small trophy fee. Fishing and ptarmigan hunting is included in the cost of your hunt.
Once you arrive in Montreal, you will need to take a two-hour flight to Kuujjuaq. The outfitter provides a parking space with security for your vehicle at Montreal.
Upon arrival in Kuujjuaq, you will be taken to your camp or lodge in a Twin Otter. The flight will take between 40 and 80 minutes depending on where you will be caribou hunting from.
*A detailed travel itinerary will be provided by your Quebec caribou hunting outfitter upon booking.
You will need a nonresident caribou tag, and many hunters also purchase black bear, small game, and fishing licenses as well. You will also need a valid passport to enter Canada, and no past DUI convictions or any other criminal offenses. Bringing your hunting rifle into Quebec, actually isn’t that difficult. You just need to fill out a Firearm Declaration Form.
