Looking for a good place to Hunt Caribou

Recommended Posts

I am looking for a good outfitter that isn't to expensive. Anybody done one of these trips? Pros/Cons of going?
I am looking at going in the next two years and would like some first hand knowledge.
Thank in advance.

I have a buddy that hunted at Munroe Lake Lodge last fall. He and his father took 3 boo and his father got to put down polar bear that invaded their camp. 1 boo was a Manitoba record for a non-resident and they went to the awards banquet in Winnepeg and had a blast and made some good contacts for hunting all things great and small. It is not a cheap hunt and is booked through 06.

I am going up to Shefferville with a group of 12 sept 2005. I did a lot of investegating and Jack Hume Adventures seemed like the right place for us. One of the few camps that could handle that many people as they use 26 different camps. only 6 hunters per site though.

Thanks for the reports guys.
Welcome to the board tolly.
I also have looked at Jack Hume adventures. They look like a class act. I have been looking at one in Manitoba also. It souonds kind of cool. You drive to Winnepeg and get on a train to Church Hill from there. Then fly to a camp. Sounds like a great adventure. It will be at least one more year before I can afford to go. I think it is called Webster Lodge.

Two friends and I went drove up to Thompson Man. in Sept. 2002 and hunted with Canadian
Sub-Artic, check out their web site. You fly from there to a base camp, then out of there in a small float plane to their camp.It's a great hunt with lots of BIG Boo. It's not cheap, but the guides are great, and they take good care of you and your game. I think we spent about $4,500 plus taxidermy costs, but what a great time! I think if I went again though, I'd fly up there, 16 hours on the road is a loooonnnngggg time to be in a pick-up cab!
Good luck and shoot straight. P.S. the Tundra was awesome!

      I respect your conservation minded approach but trying to TELL people not to keep those fish will just get you more of the same response you already got.  I also agree <15 inch bass are better keepers.  I keep a few myself each year and rarely keep anything over 16, preferring 12’s for the table. I’ve been a bass tournament angler in the past and have also promoted staunch C&R, much like the modern muskie culture, but have grown wiser with age.  I still target bass quite a bit just because they’re fun! On a 300 acre lake I agree a small group of anglers can and will have an impact with constant return visits to harvest large fish but the only two things you can do about it is, 1) As mentioned, lobby the DNR for protected slots, and 2) When people are happy to show you their catch, congratulate them and mention you like bass too but find the smaller sized fish much better table fare.  And maybe that you also fell releasing the mature fish keeps reproduction up to sustain a quality fishery.  And be nice about it.  Once you turn people off they’ll stop hearing you. That’s about all I have for ya.  Good luck.

      Bite was OK for us this weekend. Marked tons of fish but they only seemed to bite in small feeding windows due to abundance of mayfly larva down there. When they decided bite, they were inhaling our leeches though.  Rocks next to mud was best for us. Highlight of the weekend was walleye pictured below.

      I like the idea!!!👍

      Just a heads up to all.  Someone has been cutting off the Catalytic convertors on vehicles at the landings on Island Lake Reservoir.  Trucks are targeted do to the clearance and ease to get under.  They hit several vehicles on Friday morning and were trying to sell the parts at a local scrap yard by 11:30am the same day.  It cost me over $500.00 to replace this weekend.  Police where notified.

      Thank you for your opinion. I respectfully disagree with just standing by, as multiple 3lbs+ bass were shown to me in a livewell this morning coming off of a 300acre lake. Again i completely realize this is a legal choice to make, and at times selective harvest is necessary for maintaining a healthy ecosystem. Where I live in Minnesota, bass are plentiful, but fish of that calliber and bigger are not growing on trees and it takes multiple years to get to maturity. As aforementioned, i am serious about the sport aspect of bass fishing and hate to think of the idea of 10+ yr old fish being taken from lakes of such small size especially. I have personally seen the possibilities catch and release offers as myself and a buddy have caught the same 4lb fish with distinct bird/pike bite marks on 3 separate occasions just this spring/summer alone.  Again i do not mean to shame these people for being proud of catching quality fish, just want to find the best way to try to shape their thinking to take a more conservationally responsible approach to fish harvest choices. I appreciate any help i can get

      They split FM and HSO.   Turned out to be a bad decision in my opinion.   
    • delcecchi
      If I were you I would mind my own business.  Harvesting bass instead of just annoying them is perfectly legal.    You could always write a strongly worded letter to the DNR and your state legislators suggesting special regulations on those lakes that concern you or even a statewide change if you really feel that it is a problem.

      I have 2 large anchors so movement is not a problem as long as the wind is not too heavy which causes a little rocking.    The screen was as detailed as it is in winter.    As far as fishing went.    I was marking a lot of fish but most were cats.   I only marked a couple of possible walleyes but no takers, but in fairness I was only testing and was not in my best spot and was only there about 20 minutes.    Have to try again later in some of my winter hot spots.   Don

      That’s what I’m wondering too!  Mostly how well you can actually keep your bait in your ducer cone.  For a pontoon fisher I can see some pretty cool positives for the setup!

      Now I've seen it all!  😁 So how'd it go?
