SUMMARY REMARKS
Problems of Hunt: Flights left late (9:30-10:00 am) from camp, allowing only under 4 hours hunting time per day. Because Nunami only allows three flying days, half the hunt was spent idle in camp, unforgiveable for a hunt of this price.
Highlights of Hunt:
Equipment Recommendations: Knee-high rubber boots and raingear.
Would You Recommend This Hunt to a Friend? No
Why? You only get to hunt three days (out of 6) if flying is necessary. The Quebec problem of inaccessable caribou has still not been solved.

ADDITIONAL HUNTER COMMENTS AND/OR OUTFITTER/BOOKING AGENT REBUTTAL
The standard form from The Hunting Report provides little opportunity to elaborate in detail, and since my experience with Nunami was less than I had expected, I feel that it is only fair that I explain more fully the reasons for my negative critique.

Historically, perhaps the biggest uncertainty in hunting the Quebec-Labrador subspecies of caribou has been the problem of finding the herds. Many hunters have experienced hunts when no caribou were seen at all near camp, and then, next week, thousands of the animals are walking right past the cook shack. Naturally, the hunter in the first scenario will have a more negative experience than the hunter in the second, even if the outfitter and facilities are the same. Because of this uncertain nature of Quebec hunts, I have done my caribou hunting elsewhere, taking excellent bulls of the barren ground, mountain, and central barren ground subspecies.

Then, two years ago (in the pages of The Hunting Report no less), I read about a new outfit hunting the Quebec-Labrador caribou. Nunami Outfitters was using aircraft to fly their hunters out to the herds, thus ensuring no hunter would be shunked on his trip. Furthermore, Nunami representatives and even your own correspondent, Lance Stapleton, boasted long and loud about B&C bulls hiding behind every spruce and this is was likely that a world record of the subspecies would soon be taken by a Nunami hunter. Despite the price tag - this venture may be the most expensive caribou hunt on the planet - three companions and I signed up to hunt in late October 2001. Due to a family emergency, I had to postpone my hunt at the last moment (and Nunami gets high marks for letting me do this without penalty). My three buddies went ahead without me. When they arrived by charter plane to the Inuit village of Kuujjuarapik, they were disappointed to learn that their hunt would be conducted from a motel in town instead of from the excellent base camp that Nunami operates on Lake Mollet' an hour away. The hunters were told that the outfit feared that the lake would freeze over, so the hunt was conducted from town. My buddies saw no great numbers of caribou and no book-quality bulls were taken on their hunt. The largest scored around 340.

Two years later in October 2003, I finally was able to go myself. Our group of 18 hunters were told when we arrived at Lake Mollet that the nearest caribou were 90 miles away (the old Quebec problem!) and that we would be flying out to the herds daily. Nunami had only enough aircraft to take just 12 hunters per day, thus requiring that a third of the clients would have to stay in camp each day on an alternating basis. Now, it is written in the contract that three days we could fly. If any hunter required more than three fly outs to get his two trophies, he would have to pay several hundred dollars more for each additional flight. Indeed, six hunters in our party had to choose that option, and only two were successful in harvesting and additional animal.

My chief complaint about the handling of the hunt centers on the logistics of the fly outs themselves. Since the herd was so far away from camp, the flight to reach the caribou took around 50 minutes each way. Unfortunately, we never left camp before 9:30 am on any day and, on one occasion; it was 11:00 before we took off. Thus, we weren't actually hunting until around lunchtime. Keeping in mind that time required for the flight back and the need to be ready for pick up at 3:00/3:30, our actual hunting time in the field was only 3-4 hours each day. Now, since this hunt is a two hunter per guide affair, each guide had around 10 hours total over three days to find four good bulls for his clients, an almost impossible task if any hunter is selective about his trophy. The fact that we were so late getting away each day - we were told that the planes needed time to warm up and there was a fear that the wings would ice up - is unconscionable in my view for a hunt of this caliber.

I was able to take tow average bulls scoring 337 and 317, net. I am certain that the 337 bull was the largest that I saw on the hunt. My hunting partner from Michigan took only one average bull. He paid for one additional flight and spent another day hunting from camp and saw no worthy trophies. I shared my cabin with two amiable and experienced hunters from Sacramento - they also took only one average bull each despite paying for an additional fly out. I had some time in camp to green-score several racks. One lucky hunter from our group took a bull that will make the book after the 60-day drying period. I'm certain no other racks taken on our hunt will make the B&C book. This may sound like sour grapes to some, but keep in mind that this hunt has been lauded in both The Hunting Report and other magazines as a legitimate opportunity for a book animal. Nunami has priced its hunts based on this expectation.

There is much that is positive about Nunami Outfitters. Our guide, Andre, was excellent and the other guides were all competent at the very least. The camp was one of the best I've encountered in my 11 hunts in both Canada and Alaska. The food was excellent and the staff courteous and attentive. Certainly, Nunami has no control over the vagaries of the caribou migration. I believe that if the animals had been huntable from camp, there would have been more happy hunters and, perhaps, another book bull or two. Maybe Nunami could provide additional fly outs at no charge when the herds are remote to be offset by taking no flights when the herds are close by. I do not seek any refund or credit; after all, I took two bulls. Other hunters in our camp are more disappointed than I. We were led to expect by our booking agents and the outfit itself that we would be able to look over several gagger bulls and maybe even a booner or two. On our hunt at least, this was a pipe dream. At over $7,000, I cannot recommend this hunt - there are better ways to get more bang for you buck. I would advise any hunter looking for a record book caribou to contact Moise Rabesca and go to the NWT for the central barren ground animals at half Nunami's price. Despite the high fees and allure of the aircraft, Nunami still has not solved the old Quebec-Labrador dilemma: Where are the caribou? Any hunter contemplating a hunt with Nunami should carefully weight both side before writing his check. If he is unlucky and the bulls are far from camp, he should be prepared to spend over $10,000 to get six abbreviated days of hunting. I can be reached at anytime during the evening at 214-341-7795

Date: November 12, 2003 To: The Hunting Report From: Ralph Coleman RE: Complaint by David Baxter "Dittos" to the email letter your received from Dave Baxter on November 9, 2003 regarding our "trophy caribou" hunt with Nunami Outfitters.

Rather than repeat Dave's critical report on this hunt, with which I wholeheartedly agree; I want to add the perspective of one of the hunters who took neither a trophy caribou, or his allocated second caribou.

Once I became aware of the management change at Nunami, I contacted Michel Lemieux of Nunami Outfitters for assurances that the core of the hunt was still in place, especially the guides and transportation aspects. I was assured that other than the change in management all assets remained unchanged. In particular I asked about the helicopter since I was told by a friend who did this hunt in 2002, that this asset was critical to a successful hunt. I was assured by Michel that the helicopter was still there. What I was not made aware of was that the previous year Nunami had utilized two helicopters.

Since movement from one location to another is virtually impossible without the use of the helicopter, with limited availability we were stuck on "unproductive" islands twice during the hunt.

Beginning on day one, I was extremely disappointed when I was drawn to spend my first hunt day in camp, due to transportation limitations. I don't know why they overbooked our group, when the group to follow us had only six hunters.

Guide selection is the luck of the draw, and again I was disappointed when we were assigned the young camp mechanic who doubles as a "backup" guide. This I feel is again the results of overbooking.

Although he was very amiable young man and worked hard for his clients, he was not the seasoned guide you would expect on a hunt of this caliber. This was evident on our first hunt day (day two) when he selected our hunt area (from the helicopter) and we saw less than 40 caribou, no trophy bulls, and no shot opportunities. It was again evident when after having only limited success on our three fly outs, my hunting companion Brian Buckley and I purchased an additional fly out at $500 a piece. Again, he selected the drop area, we saw even less caribou, no trophy bulls, and no shot opportunities. Add to this losing direction on this "island" and walking around aimlessly for hours, it was not a productive day for either of us.

In addition, upon their recommendation, Brian and I agreed to use Pierre Gevry Taxidermy Studios to mount our trophies. Since this process was done outside the hotel in the cold at 11:00 pm, we took care of the basic paperwork, paid our deposit and told Pierre we would contact him via email to complete the process. We both sent emails to Pierre on 10/17, and to date neither has had a reply. Brian's concern is much more critical since his trophy did not make the trip back to Montreal with us.

I would strongly recommend that hunters considering this hunt ask Nunami for references from their 2003 hunt year, and investigate thoroughly their transportation and guide assets before writing the check.

Date: November 14, 2003 To: The Hunting Report From: Nunami Outfitters RE: Complaint by David Baxter

First of all I want to thank you on behalf of Nunami to be in The Hunting Report.

This week I had the opportunity to read some concerns that Nunami's clients had on their trophy hunt this October. I want to tell you that we greatly appreciate constructive comments that some of your subscribers made. We are more than happy to receive and study some feedback from our hunters. That is very important to us because we want to always be better and we are working very hard on that. We want our clients to fulfill a dream when they come hunting with us.

As you know, our trophy hunt took place two weeks in October, the 4th and 11th and 11th to 18th. To carry on that hunt we had a helicopter, an otter and a Cessna 185. Since we've started that hunt in 1999, sometimes we had beavers but always a helicopter. In October the weather is starting to be sometimes hazardous and we have to be very cautious on our decision-making and even more when the caribou is far from our main lodge and we have to fly our clients to the herds. All our flights are being done at 100% safety, one of our planes go see where the caribou is, checks the visibility (fog, etc.), identifies lakes where the planes will have to land and the time it will take the planes to get to the hunting ground and back. This process takes place almost everyday to maximize the security of everybody.

Due to that, it can happen that our planes and helicopter have to leave our lodge later in the morning and the only reason is safety. Farther the caribou is from the camp, more time it takes to get to the hunting grounds. We try to get all our planes back to the lodge at 5 pm.

Of course all clients have three free fly-outs to go to the herds, but for the reasons mentioned above, those fly-outs can be shorter than expected. If we know that today's hunt will be of 4 to 5 hours, can we ask our clients to stay at the camp that day without knowing that the following days will be better?

The hunters can always hunt directly from our lodge, which is sometimes better.

Nunami will never jeopardize anyone's safety that is how we have to make sometimes unpleasant decisions.

This year we had more clients on the week of October 4th to 11th than the week of the 11th to the 18th, unfortunately we had a group that cancelled that week.

Again Mr. Causey, Nunami is thankful to have the opportunity to answer some hunters concerns. I believe that in 2003 we were better than 2002 and 2004 we will be better than 2003.

Date: January 12, 2003 To: The Hunting Report From: David Baxter RE: Compliant on Nunami Outfitters

Dear Sirs:

Two months ago, I filed a critical report on my October hunt with Nunami Outfitters of Quebec. The essence of my complaint can be distilled down to three issues: 1). There were too many hunters in camp. Nunami could only fly a maximum of 12 hunters per day out to the caribou herds, leaving one third of our group of 18 behind. (Your correspondent, Lance Stapleton, was part of a VIP group of only 6 hunters--naturally, he found the accommodations uncrowded with plenty of the individual attention and personal pampering that he has effusively reported.) 2). We were late getting away to hunt each day, never earlier than 9:30, and once, at 11 am. With the hour-long flight each way, we were left with scarcely 4 hours of hunting in the field each day, a tough situation with one guide having to find 4 trophy bulls for his two clients in the 3 days we could fly. 3). The hunt is not worth its considerable price. It is probably the most expensive caribou hunt in North America, and Nunami clients have been imbued with the expectation that record-book bulls are wandering hither and yon like so many ants at a picnic. There was only one book bull taken by our group, I'm sure, and the 337 bull I took was the largest I saw.

It is my responsibility to your readers to report that, since the filing of my critique, several people associated with Nunami Outfitters have contacted me in a sincere and professional effort to address these shortcomings. Michel Lemieux of Nunami's administrative office and Bob Dunn of Dunn's Sport Hunting, Nunami's booking agent, called me (and others) personally to discuss our experience. I have been assured that all future hunts will have no more than 14 clients, preferably less, in camp at one time. Further, every effort will be made to leave camp each morning at the earliest possible time consistent with the safety of the hunters and guides. The strict adherence to the 3 fly-outs-per-hunt policy will be reviewed and revised if sound business practices permit.

I should note that Nunami is planning to fly their future hunters directly from Montreal to the main camp at Lac Mollet, thus bypassing the time-consuming commercial stop at an Inuit village on Hudson Bay. Whether the hunt's expensive price tag is worth your hard-earned money must be a decision left to the individual hunter. With the dizzying escalation of the costs of any quality hunt these days, Nunami's fees may not surprise the experienced among us.

As I noted in my report, I sought no refund or credit. I simply wanted your subscribers to see "the face without its makeup." As any good business must, Nunami has responded professionally and should be commended for its effort. Please add this follow-up note to your file on Nunami Outfitters.

This was my greatest, most exciting trip ever. Pounded two big bulls but had major problems upon return to Dowal Hilton. My truck, a 1999 super duty F350 4 x 4, was stolen. I asked at least three different people -- desk, bellman, manager -- about parking and security while I was gone. They all said, parking lot has gates and security patrol
