ADDITIONAL HUNTER COMMENTS AND/OR OUTFITTER/BOOKING AGENT REBUTTAL
Anticosti is a really special place for whitetail hunting, particularly if you are used to spending many hours hunting from tree stands. The open, boggy meadows where the deer often feed provide a lot of opportunities for spot-and-stalk hunting. Deer tracks and trails are everywhere. I saw deer on every outing, including at least a couple of good bucks each day that I hunted. I had planned on being somewhat selective and just looking around on the first day, but I ended up taking a handsome five-pointer. After a failed stalk on a much bigger buck (which had simply walked away scrubby trees as I was trying to get into position for a shot), this smaller buck showed up. We were able to move closer for a nice shot, and took it. The next day I did not see a shooter buck until the afternoon, when a bigger six-pointer popped up while I was still-hunting on the edge of a meadow. After a brief scramble to get in position I got a look at him and decided to take the shot.

I hunted with my father, who had not been to Anticosti in 30 years. He did not want to ride behind the guide on a quad ATV to get deeper into the hunting zone, which almost certainly would likely have allowed him to cover more territory and look over more deer. Hunting on his own, on foot, he passed up a 30-yard shot on small buck on the first day. While hunting with the guide on the third day he simply missed a long shot on a nice buck. He took a doe later that afternoon to be sure he had some meat. The next day, he and I hunted together on foot and our guide, he and I nearly caught up with a VERY large and heavy buck after a 1,000 yard stalk (one of many fun and memorable moments on the trip). A big snowstorm made hunting challenging on the last two days, with nearly two feet of snow falling, and Dad simply ran out of time to look for a big buck. He still came home with two meat deer, which made him perfectly happy.

Guide Michel Doiron was very easygoing and knowledgeable, and knew the whole area perfectly. He was very tuned into the winds and deer movements. He seemed to have a knack for finding bucks and and we saw more deer when hunting with him. His English was very good but he was happy to let me brush up on my mostly-forgotten college French. We got along great.

Although I tagged out early, I enjoyed relaxing at camp (this was my vacation) and taking pictures of the boreal forest and the numerous lakes and rivers. I saw many red foxes (which show little fear of humans on Anticosti), a few eagles, and many gray jays and boreal chickadees. The Dauphiné Nord camp where we stayed was simple but comfortable, with propane heating, indoor toilet, hot shower and a full kitchen. Lights are provided by solar panels and batteries. To reduce expenses, we choose a housekeeping (European) package and cooked all of our own meals, which worked out very well for us. The 100-pound-per-person weight limit for travel to the island was more than adequate, though we also had staples such as milk, eggs and butter delivered from the Coop store in Port Menier. The current exchange rate with Canada was also very favorable when purchasing licenses and food.

Other hunters leaving as we arrived, and leaving with us took some very respectable racks, including a number which would likely score over 100 inches (SCI Gold for Anticosti deer is 94 7/8). Based on my experience, I would say you can reasonably expect to get a shot at a very nice buck.

I strongly recommend this hunt, especially for whitetail hunters would like to try still hunting (and spotting and stalking) in very unique "North Woods" terrain. According to my father, the hunting is much like hunting caribou or moose on Newfoundland. For a New England deer hunter like myself, it was spectacular to be able to see game in open country. I will be going back as soon as I can manage.
