ADDITIONAL HUNTER COMMENTS AND/OR OUTFITTER/BOOKING AGENT REBUTTAL
We share Dr. Nunez disappointment that he did not get a polar bear.

As indicated in their contracts all clients are able to extend the hunt for an additional five days at $800 US per day payable in Resolute. Dr. Nunez was also able to return at the end of the season for an additional fee.

There was one client who took advantage of the offer to return at the end of the season in order to have a successful hunt.

Dr. Nunez's claim that the area is hunted out is patent nonsense. He just had bad luck that none of the 10 bears he saw was shootable because of size and sex.

Polar bears are highly mobile animals. An adult male bear can (and does) cover 60 miles in a day. The area where Dr. Nunez was hunting is huge. It extends 100 miles east of Resolute and 200 miles west. It is 40 miles wide at narrowest point plus there are inlets and channels between the Arctic islands.

Dr. Nunez is the first client in 25 years that has categorically stated based on his 10 days in the Arctic that the polar bear population in Resolute - has been hunted out. This after seeing 10 bears in 10 days.

Based on his long time experience he has resorted to calling many people liars.

Dr. Nunez states that Canada North Outfitting, Inc and Nanuk Outfitting lie when they state a over 90 success rate on polar bears in Resolute.

We can immediately provide The Hunting Report a print out of the kill rate for Resolute for the 2006 season that was sent to us by the wildlife officer in Resolute. But it may be that Dr. Nunez would call her a liar.

We can easily provide The Hunting Report a kill rate for the past five years in Resolute by contacting the wildlife office in Iqaluit and also the polar bear lab in Igloolik.

Within the past five years there was one year where the success rate in Resolute was in the 80 percentile and we have never hidden this fact from any potential client.

By implication Dr. Nunez also calls Dr. Mitch Taylor, the current polar bear biologist a liar. Dr. Taylor has stated publicly after three years of helicopter census that the Resolute, High Arctic polar bear populations are very healthy. Dr. Taylor has well over 20 years experience in studying polar bears.

By implication Dr. Nunez also calls his taxidermist a liar in recommending Canada North Outfitting, inc and Resolute for polar bear hunts.

We stand by our 25 year reputation and the success rate in Resolute as we have stated.
