Second Week Caribou- Excellent

We are pleased to report our second week of caribou hunting was much like our first, very successful. The Kaminuriak herd returned to its normal patterns and our second week of hunters continued enjoyed another good hunt. 11 hunters filled 21 of the 22 licenses they held and we could have filled many more. #22 could have filled his second tag except for having two groups of nice bulls chased away by big wolves !  Quality was excellent with several exceptional trophies. Various reports indicate with the return to the traditional pattern, the Manitoba hunt has far exceeded the ones further North in Nunavut.  Here are some photos of our week two results, enjoy !

First Week Caribou – 100% Success

We are pleased to report the ‘boo came back home and our first week hunters were 100% successful. MANY beautiful animals were taken and we can’t wait to see some of the scores.  There are more animals turning up as we enter week 2 and with more reported on the way. We sure had one happy bunch of hunters leave today. We thank them for their support ! Lots of stories to share but in the meantime, enjoy this photo of the opening weeks success !

Hurricane Irma Update-FL Office

Unfortunately, our Florida office has sustained major water damage from Hurricane Irma.  We have moved into another unit and at this time, the office number has been forwarded to the lodge but we expect that to be back in the office early next week. . Our local Ocala FL area has limited email, phone and cable service. For email communication, please email us  at ganglersoffice@embarqmail.com.

First Caribou of the Year

Although it is early, it appears our caribou herd is following their traditional migration patterns with animals now entering the province in consistent numbers. One of the first animals was a beauty taken  by Ron Watson with guide/manager Ralph Lloyd. Five animals were taken yesterday in the first half day of hunting with some estimated in the mid 300s.

CARIBOU IN MANITOBA

 

Many hunters say, “Call us when the caribou are in!”  Well, that’s exactly what we are doing.  Many know we are North America’s finest caribou hunt but all Manitoba outfitters were severely affected by a delayed migration the last two years. Based on reports we received today, there are  good pockets of animals in Northern Manitoba with a large amount positioned just to the North. A prime situation. We still have some openings- 4 hunts Sept. 9-16, 6 hunts Sept. 16-23, and 4 hunts Sept. 23-30. Price is $ 4995, trophies fees $ 1350 each. The price is going up in 2018 so this is a PRIME OPPORTUNITY.
