While we have successfully guided bowhunters for both woodland caribou and moose, it is the caribou on which most interest is focused. Our hunts do not depend on migration interception. As a result, they are much more challenging, while at the same time being very achievable when relying on the knowledge gained from past experiences with previous bowhunting clients. The open terrain presents some challenges that must be tackled properly in order for a bowhunter to harvest a good quality trophy rack. These would be an example of the type of racks which are common in our areas, and each fall we take record book quality specimens. Also, the resident nature of our herds allows us to hunt directly from modern, full-service lodges, with no need for primitive spike or tent camps. Spotting of animals directly from the lodge is not only possible, but has come to be expected.
One of the business owners has been largely involved with our bowhunting activities and being a successful archery caribou hunter himself for 6 years, has much more than just basic knowledge about what is required to be successful in this method of hunting our big game. As well, all our regular guides have been involved with successful archery hunts during the past few hunting seasons. While this hunting method is quite challenging, it is very achievable, and we feel quite confident in our ability to provide excellent opportunity for a successful hunt.
Our new Caribou Lodge has proved to exceed all expectations during its first two years of operation. Rocky Ridge Lodge has continued to offer a superior hunting atmosphere with very consistent archery caribou hunting action and associated success rates. Both Rocky Ridge and Caribou lodges offer boating on lakes to assist in spotting for animals, and both have canoe accessed waterways which add a different aspect to hunting techniques, appealing to most who enjoy wilderness canoe travel. Salmon Brook Lodge has also continued to provide virtually a 100% kill rate for woodland caribou, and has had some of our largest trophy animals during certain fall hunting seasons.
