Summary Remarks
Problems of Hunt:Caribou were pretty scarce due to a short lived early migration, but all eight hunters in camp took bulls.
Highlights of Hunt:Taking a great bull on the last morning of the last day of the hunt. It was a pleasure to be in the North country, hunting hard, and enjoying camp life.
Equipment Recommendations:Need good hiking boots and rain gear. I wore Kenetrek's and was very pleased with them.
Would You Recommend This Hunt to a Friend?yes
Why?This hunt was very well organized. In fact, I believe Kevin Mattice is among the most organized guides I have hunted with. Great camp with more food at each meal than the entire group could begin to eat.
