Camacho missed the first wolf he shot at due to "the shakes" but reports taking three wolves on his hunt, including an "above average" 102-pound light gray male and a black female, both with excellent winter fur in prime condition. He also tells us the accommodations in Martin's home were comfortable and that Martin's wife, Terry, provides what he calls "the best home cooking I have ever experienced in all my years of hunting travel."
Camacho accessed this hunt by flying first to Toronto, then to Timmins, Ontario, where he rented a 4x4 truck for the 2½hour drive to Kapuskasing. Hunters can arrange transfer to and from Timmins for an additional charge. This was Camacho's second hunt with Martin, and he tells us it's one of the most physically challenging hunts he's experienced. That is despite wolves being baited or driven past waiting hunters.
"I'm 67 years old," he says, "have some past, disabling injuries and come from a hot climate (Florida), so the extreme cold and the occasional need to relocate by fast and furious snowmobile ride during a wolf drive is more than I could successfully accomplish without mishaps like getting snow inside my glasses, goggles, scope, gun action, etc. I'd strongly recommend discussing necessary equipment with the outfitter prior to the hunt. Shots are often fast and offhand at moving targets at distances from 25 to 350 yards with the average being around 100 yards. For this hunt I opted to sit over bait in an ice fishing shack converted to a propane-heated blind and shot my wolves at about 200 yards.
