You and your guide will be comfortable and self-sufficient, staying in high quality, lightweight mountaineering tents, which we provide. You will be highly mobile, and will generally work your way through the mountain range in search of game. We also have several comfortable cabins situated at various locations in the heart of great game country, so you may stop at one of these for a day or two, or to escape bad weather if you happen to be in the area.
On the High Country Caribou hunts, or in the case of a family hunt, you may stay in one of these comfortable camps for the duration of your hunt. We put a great deal of time into planning your hunt, and choosing a great starting point for you, based on our knowledge of the area, and the seasonal distribution of game. Most of the time, you will be able to find great trophies in the area that you start your hunt in, but in the rare case that you aren’t, we can always move you to a different area later on in the hunt, if necessary, and weather permitting. We also float the Arctic Red River in whitewater rafts on some hunts, particularly later in the season when game is beginning to move onto its winter ranges. This is an exciting way to travel through a lot of spectacular country, and to see a lot of game.
During the September Caribou hunts, we have established heated tent frame camps for your comfort, although "spiking out" is sometimes required if the weather is warm, and the caribou are staying higher. After you are through hunting, you will be picked up either at your original point of departure or at another prearranged pick-up point and be flown back to base-camp for your flight back to Norman Wells.
