As Yogi Berra famously said, "It ain't over 'til it's over." On January 11
, we alerted Email Extra subscribers that Mirage Adventures had 33 tags available for one-caribou trophy hunts. Since then, we've again contacted every caribou outfitter currently operating in Québec to get the complete picture.
The good news is that, as of mid-January, there are likely still a few tags available and a cancellation hunt is always a possibility. If you need or want a Québec-Labrador caribou to complete your collection, you're going to have to act quickly, as all indications are that 2017 will be the last opportunity to take this subspecies for the foreseeable future.
Note that the number of tags is probable based on the announced 50% cutback in permit numbers from 2016. As far as we can tell, the actual numbers have not been set, and the tags have not been allocated as of this writing.
If you really want a Québec caribou hunt this fall, we suggest you contact all of these outfitters immediately. We've listed the number of reviews in our database for each.Jack Hume Adventures
