ADDITIONAL HUNTER COMMENTS AND/OR OUTFITTER/BOOKING AGENT REBUTTAL

This was the worst trip and Outfitter ever.  I have been all over the world and I have never seen a company so mismanaged and mean.  From the time I arrived in Montreal, I was misled.  Their representative Kurt Santoro arrived at the hotel for our meeting 45 minutes late.  The other hunters and I had no idea what to do.  He finally arrived and it was no big deal to him that he left us in the dark.  He then told us we were being delayed a day because of bad weather.  We found out later our delay was due to them wanting to save a plane ride to our camp because they were waiting for two other hunters.   Kurt told us if we did not get our caribou we would be able to stay in camp an extra day to hunt.  Three guys did not kill their caribou and the camp manager told them they were done on the 4th of October.  They wanted to hunt on the 5th and 6th. Because Kurt told them they could stay longer and they were told NO.  Kurt told us he would meet us in the Hotel lobby on our day of departure and this was a lie.  He never showed up and the group of hunters had no idea where to go or what to do. 

We flew into Kuujjuaq, QC and the Safari Nordik rep (Martin) told us our luggage would not be traveling with us.  We did not get our luggage into camp until the next day thereby losing a half days hunt.  The first thing once we arrived was a meeting with the guides and cook.  The manager told us all hunters would be paired with two other hunters.  I interrupted him and told him I had paid for a 1X1 hunt and therefore I was not to hunt with anyone but the guide.  The manager (Cliff) told me he knew nothing about it and I had to hunt with two other hunters.  I told him I paid a $1000.00 extra because of my poor health.  He told me I had no choice.  I asked him to call Safari Nordik and explain the problem.  He refused saying nothing could be done because there were not anymore guides available anyway.  The next day while everyone was waiting for their luggage because they had their ammo in the luggage, I told my guide I was ready to hunt because I had borrowed some ammo from another hunter.  I was told we were not going out because they were going to wait until the plane came with the luggage even though I had my gear.

I made the best of the situation and I harvested two Caribou.  We had no choice from the guide on what animal to shoot.  He told all three hunters to shoot at 5 bulls that were over 400 yards away.  He told us take it or leave them.  He also told us the other guides had a betting pool going on how few animals we were going to see so, he left us little choice but to shoot and hope for the best.

The day we were told to leave, we were told to pack all our gear and a plane would come and take all 13 hunters plus our gear.  When the plane finally arrived, the pilot told us we were going to be overloaded with just the 13 hunters. He would not let us take anything until we said we needed our guns and bows with us.  He agreed and we had to leave the rest of our luggage on the tundra.  We flew to Kuujjuaq, QC, and the luggage never arrived.  We then flew to Montreal where Kurt Santoro met us at the airport.  I asked him why they did not send two planes because they had to know our luggage would not fit on the plane.  He told us Martin would eventually send it to us by UPS.  He also told us we were going to lose any ammo we had left.  I personally had two boxes worth $50.00.

That evening Kurt Santoro had a meeting with us to describe our luggage to him because no one had their names on sleeping bags and other luggage.   Six guys were waiting for our meat and Kurt told us the meat was still at the butchers.  The guys were upset with Kurt because he knew they were not spending the night and the meat was not at the locker in the Hotel parking lot as was promised in the brochure.  They had to wait for over three hours before the butcher showed up with the meat.  I decided to leave my meat that also arrived until the next day because my wife and I were spending the night.  Kurt Santoro asked me and another two guys what time we were leaving the next day and he would meet us at the locker to give us our meat and capes.   We  all said 7:00am and he told us that would be fine.  At 8:15am the next morning I had to call him because he was a no show.  He promised me he would be at the locker at 9:00am.  He finally showed up at 9:45am.  I started loading my meat into my pickup and he came up to me and he said my meat had been processed by mistake.  He then told me I owed him $250.00 for the processing and if I did not give him the money he was going to take my meat and sell it to someone else.  I told him I specifically did not want my meat processed and I showed him my paperwork  proving  my meat was NOT to be processed.  He told me that was not his problem and he then took the meat out of my truck.  I then told him I would give him half of what he was demanding and he agreed.  I paid him the money and I left.  I then pulled up to the hotel entrance and I told my wife to put the luggage into the truck while I went inside to check out.  When I came out she was crying and I asked her what was wrong.  She told me Kurt Santoro and another guy had driven up behind my truck and told her they were taking a box of meat.  She told them to wait for me but Kurt told her he was taking the meat.  She tried to stop him by stepping between our truck and Kurt and Kurt then bumped her aside and took a box of meat.  I immediately called Kurt on the phone and he told me he had mistakenly given me someone elses box of meat and he would come back and give me the correct box.  He showed back up about 45minutes later.  My wife asked me not to do anything and to just get our box of meat and go.  He finally went into the trailer and gave me someone elses box of meat.  He told me it was a guides donated meat.  I then just left before it became more serious. 

I found out talking to the guides in camp, Safari Nordik only has at the most 3 operational camps.  They have 35 camps registered with the Quebec government but, almost all of them are not being used and the buildings have fallen down.  They also say if you want to donate your meat you still must pay the $125.00 per animal processing fee.  What they do not tell you is the meat does not go to a local food bank but, is divided among Safari Nordik employees. 

Believe it or not there were 4 other hunters treated worse than me.  They paid extra for a Just in Time hunt.  They were supposed to be flown to a different camp and taken to where the caribou were migrating.  Two of them were stuck in camp with us and for the first 4 days they had no one to even take them out.  On the 5th day, a guide was sent into camp to guide them.  Remember, they told me there were no 1X1 guides available.  One of the hunters is Frank F. Flynn and he said he knows your company and he said you should have him in your files.  He told me he would be happy to talk to you concerning our Trip to Hell.

As of this date, I still do not have my luggage and they will not return any of my emails to them concerning my refund of $1000 (editor note: agent managed to get him the $1000 refund). I have since talked to several other hunters and no one has received their luggage nor have they had an email or phone call returned.   One hunter said he got to talk to Martin on October 10th and Safari Nordik  had still not sent us our luggage.  The other hunter has said Martin has since refused to return any calls or emails

ADDITIONAL HUNTER COMMENTS AND/OR OUTFITTER/BOOKING AGENT REBUTTAL
A little of my history with SCI.  I joined the Los Angeles chapter and SCI in October of 1985.  I was asked to be on our board of directors in 1986 which I accepted and continued on the board for 19 years until 2005.  I held every office including President in 2000. I have been on many other committees, including forming the original committee for our Youth Outdoor Safari , which included past president of SCI, Dennis Anderson and John Whipple. I also joined the Orange County chapter of SCI in 2000.  I have attended the annual conventions every year except one since 1986.  At most of those conventions I have purchased hunts.  

Most of the hunts have been good and a few not so good.  I am closing in on the North American 29 and decided to book a hunt for Quebec-Labrador caribou. I just got back from the biggest ripoff and dealt with the most disrespectful organization I have ever hunted with.  At the show last year, I spoke with outfitters for that area and chose Safari Nordik. I spoke with Kurt Santoro and Nicolas Laurin.  Nicolas is one of the owners and chairman of the board of Safari Nordik and Kurt was their rep and contact person. What convinced me to book with them was a hunt they offered that is not on their brochette which they call the JUST IN TIME hunt.  They charge an additional $3,000.00 for this hunt but would call me when the migration is moving.  I would have a one on one guide along with a plane and pilot to fly to be with me at all times.  I asked if it is legal to fly and hunt the same day.  They told me it is legal in Quebec if you stay in the hunt area. They told me I would see hundreds of caribou each day so the hunt should not take more than one or two days and I would be able to pick a real trophy animal. I told them I would be available after the 10th of September.  The hunt had to be paid in full ($9,995.00) by 6/1/13.

I spoke with Kurt in August and told him I would be available by September 8th.  He told me at that time it had been slow, that the migration had not started. At that time he also gave me a direct phone number to their office in Montreal (450) 71-1800.  He also told me that Safari Nordik was only getting half of the permits they needed.  They had sold 100 hunts but only had enough permits for 50 hunters but they had already purchased my permits.  I asked what happens to the hunters that you could not get permits for.  He told those hunters would have to wait until next year.  I asked if they could get their money refunded which he answered no that they have to wait until next year to hunt, a real problem!  By mid September, I hadnt heard from Kurt or anyone from Safari Nordik as to my hunt or when I should arrive for my hunt.  I called the phone number Kurt had given to me and spoke with someone named Charlie.  He could not tell me anything and suggested I email Kurt.  Charlie said that Kurt always checks his email.  I sent Kurt an email to which he never responded.  I then called the phone number that was on my payment receipts (800) 361-3748 and spoke with Johanne Longpre with whom I had been in contact with when I made the 3 payments.  By this time it was September 24th.  I told her that Kurt was not responding to phone or email messages and the season was soon coming to an end.  I want to know what the heck is going on up there. She said that she would call Martin Levac, the general manager, and he would call me right back.  He did call the next day.  He said that the hunting was still slow and that is why they hadnt called yet.  I asked when the season was going to be over.  He told me October 5th would be the last day of hunting.  My response was that if I packed and got on a plane to Montreal, I would have to overnight and get  the flight to Kuujjuaq until September 28th.  This is where they were to pick me up to fly me to camp.  If I fly to camp that day, the season was ending in 7 hunting days.  When was I to get the call?  The next day, Johanne sent me an email with my hotel reservation and boarding pass for the flight from Montreal to Kuujjuaq.

Kurt Santoro met me at the hotel at the airport in Montreal. He told me he had been buying permits from other outfitters.  He asked me to bring the permits with me the next day when I fly to Kuujjuaq and give them to Martin Levac.  I dont know if hunters were hunting without permits, I didnt ask but it didnt sound right.  I only wanted to make sure I had proper permits for my hunt, which I did.

When I arrived at Kuujjuaq, I met Martin Levac and gave him the permits.  He then took me to a float plane which flew me to the camp called snow camp.  There I met my guide Claude.  They had flown Claude in from the other camp to be my guide.  Claude told me there were more caribou in the area at the camp he came from so he couldnt understand why I was sent to that camp. He also told me that the migration had already happened and the caribou were all south, that we would only see stragglers in this area.  The camp had 13 hunters, 4 guides, 4 boats.  They had been there for 4 days.  Most had harvested but had to shoot any bull they saw.   The caribou were less than average. Slim pickins.

Just before I left for the hunt, I wrenched my lower back. The first couple of days, I had a hard time lacing my boots until a pain med would take hold. The first day hunt day September 29th,  Claude and I were waiting to hear from Martin as to when my plane and pilot would be there to move me to a better area.  Claude and I hunted around camp that day and saw 1 bull but Claude told me that isnt a good bull so we broke off the stalk. No plane as promised.  The next day, I went with Claude and we hunted by boat and saw nothing. That evening, the camp manager came and got me.  He told me that Martin wanted to talk to me on the satellite phone.  Martin told me that the group that was in camp was leaving the next day and another group was arriving.  In that group, there would be another JUST IN TIME hunter named Pat. The plan was that Martin had made an arrangement with another outfitter to bring me and the other JUST IN TIME hunter, Pat to that outfitters area where there would be many, many caribou.  I would not hunt 1 on 1 as I had booked but it wouldnt matter because there so many caribou that we should both harvest in one day.  I agreed to that plan and accepted 2 on 1 hunting.  Claude then spoke to Martin as did the camp manager to confirm the plan. 

The next day, Claude again confirmed the plan and told me to pack all my gear, that when the other hunter arrived, we would leave and not come back to that camp, if we needed another day of hunting, we would fly to Kuujjuaq because it was much closer than snow camp.

The next day, a twin otter plane came in with 12 hunters and took 12 hunters back.  The new group was called to a meeting and was assigned guides.  The JUST IN TIME HUNTER had already been told of the plan and was told only to unpack his rifle and what was necessary to hunt with as we would be leaving.  A float plane was on the way to pick us up.  He also agreed to hunt 2 on 1 and share the plane and the guide.

Some of the other hunters were grumbling when assigned guides because they had paid extra to also hunt 1 on 1.  Do the math, 13 hunters would be in camp with 4 guides and 4 boats of which 3 of the 12 hunter had booked 1 on 1 hunts.  That would leave 10 hunters in 1 boat and 1 guide.  It had to be premeditated to send that many hunters without the proper amount of guides but what could they say once they are there. I thought it wrong the way they assigned 3 and 4 hunters to a boat and guide but that was not any of my business and I was facing my own problems with Safari Nordik. I told Pat that I was happy to be leaving that camp because it would be an unhappy camp to which he agreed.

The float plane landed and unloaded some of the gear the new hunters had brought that wouldnt fit into the plane in which they had arrived.  I could see that Claude was getting angry while talking with Johnny, the pilot.  Then Claude and Johnny went to talk to the camp manager. They tried to contact Martin who was unavailable.  Johnny refused to fly us to the other area because he did not have written permission from that outfitter. Claude was very angry and told us he was going to fly back with Johnny and try to help us out of the problem. He would be back the next day. 

Claude had suggested that we hike to the top of the hills behind the camp and watch to see if caribou may wander by.  We did that the rest of the day but saw no caribou.  Pat and I did have time to talk and get to know each other. We are both long time members of SCI and both only needed 3 more species to have the North American 29. Both of us had been on many hunts.  Pat had said that if worse came to worse, even though he had booked a premier hunt to have a good opportunity to harvest a real nice trophy bull, he would shoot a cow if he needed to collect that species then wait to see if we could find any bull.   

The next morning Martin called and said that Claude was waiting at the float plane to hear from him to return to camp.  We had to make a choice of flying out of camp and go home without our hunt or staying at that camp where we would then have to hunt 2 on 1 with Claude. We would not have access to a pilot or plane and would not be moved. It didnt matter that we had paid $10,000.00 for the JUST IN TIME hunt, take it or leave it. Because we were already there and the time that I had involved in this hunt, I decided to stay and try to harvest something as did Pat.

When Claude came back, we went hunting that day.  He said this was his first and last year with this outfit.  He had guided with the previous owner of the outfit but these people are all screwed up.  While at Kuujjuaq, they couldnt get fuel for the boats at the normal place because they wouldnt sell any more gas to Safari Nordik unless they paid them the $30,000 they owed them. Claude said they had to go and fill a bunch of 2 gallon plastic gas containers at another location and pay cash to bring back to camp.  He then told us that there were only 2 camps that were open this year and only one other that could have been used. They advertise 32 camps but the rest seem to be old sites that havent been used for years. As for having 50 guides, 14 camp managers along with 14 cooks, I doubt it.

That afternoon we did find one herd of 8 bulls of which Pat and I each shot one bull apiece. They were, at best, very average bulls. I saw one more bull on the hunt which I shot. Another very average bull at best.  I had promised Claude that I would donate all the meat to him.  He said he did need the meat for his family.

When I gave Claude a tip, he asked me to mention to the other hunters to please give the tips directly to the guides and cooks, not by check or credit card to Safari Nordik because they were afraid they would not get the tip money.  That they receive very little pay and relied on tips.

When the plane arrived in camp on October 6th  to take us back to Kuujjuaq, we could not take all of our luggage, only our rifle case and I had my back pack.  I received my luggage on October 28th. 

When we arrived at Kuujjuaq, we immediately boarded a flight to Montreal.  We were greeted by Kurt Santoro.  Kurt was greeted by an angry crowd of hunters.  Pat had met 2 other JUST IN TIME hunters on his way into camp which were also on the same flight to Montreal with us.  As we walked up to say something to Kurt, he said he would meet with the 4 of us at the hotel a little later.  We all checked into the hotel and met at the bar.   We all had the same story, 1 on1, our own plane and pilot and $10,000.00 instead of the normal $7,000 because we had all booked the JUST IN TIME special hunt.

We had some drinks, watched Sunday night football game and then dinner.  By then it was 10:30 PM and all but Pat, needed to get up by 3:00 AM to go through customs and catch our flights. As we talked we decided that Kurt Santoro didnt really want to meet with us so we all went to bed.

The next morning when I checked out of the hotel, I asked if I had any messages, no messages.

When I got home on October 7th, I sent Kurt Santoro a short email. He tried to put the blame on me for going up there for the hunt when they werent ready.  Thats a joke! The other 3 JUST IN TIME hunters were all called at the same time to come up for the hunt.

On October 18th, I sent an email to Kurt Santoro, who is handling the shipping of the capes and antlers, asking him when he was sending me an invoice for $400 so he would ship my cape and antlers and when he thought he would send the shipment.  I copied the email to Johanne and Martin.  On October 23rd, I sent an email to Martin pertaining to my luggage and asked if he had received a copy of the email I sent to Kurt which he said he had received.  I told him that Kurt had not responded to that email about my cape and antlers.  Martin said he would send Kurt a text message so he would reply. That was 7 days ago, no reply.  

Safari Nordik should not be allowed to attend or sell hunts at our SCI Convention.  They have had their permits cut in half by the Canadian Government but are still trying to sell those hunts for next year which are already sold to the hunters that were expecting to hunt this year.  SCI should not condone how these people operate by allowing them an opportunity to sell to our members.

As a 28 year member and Life Member of SCI, I have never sent in this kind of report about any other outfitter.  I feel it is our duty to try to prevent any of our other members to be subjected to these kind of outfitters (Safari Nordik) and their owners, Nicolas Laurin or represented by people like Kurt Santoro.

I thank you for your time and consideration of this matter.

ADDITIONAL HUNTER COMMENTS AND/OR OUTFITTER/BOOKING AGENT REBUTTAL
Barbara, I noticed in your last issue that you had a section on caribou and outfitters. I would like to file a complaint on Nicolas Laurin of Safari Nordik. Three years ago Mr. Frank Romeo and myself booked a caribou hunt with Safari Nordik, being talked into the Platinum Package at the cost of $8,100.00 for a total cost of $16,200.00 we were assured of a class A hunt. Two weeks before the hunt we were notified that we did not get a permit because of the government. This we did not like, because we had made plans, like every one, that we would be hunting. But we understand this could be out of his control. We agreed to wait until 2013. Again 2 weeks before we were to depart on the 2013 hunt we were notified again we did not get permits. At this time I had lost faith in Mr. Laurin and Safari Nordik, and Mr Romeo and myself ask for a return of the money we had paid him. We have talked to him and the people he works with and could not get an answer, I have tried to call several times and sent several e-mails and none have been answered. It is not like he has been out any money, because he had done nothing. I think outfitters like Safari Nordiki give other outfitters a bad name and should not be allowed to sell hunts at outdoor shows or allow their agents to do so, (this hunt was bought at SCI in Las Vegas). Thanks for listening to me. If you need any more information contact me at 2300 Race Street, Ft. Worth, Texas 76111 or call 817-834-1911 or cell 817-300-9109. Thanks, Gib Lewis

SUMMARY REMARKS
Problems of Hunt: Number one problem was paucity or lack of game. This is understandable because your hunting migrating animals. However, we sold on the idea that they would move us to the carabou if they were not migrating through. We saw very few animals the first three days. We were not moved despite our requests and their advertising they would do so. The second problem, our guide actually quit on the second day. It was after a mildly heated discussion between he and myself. He had us sitting stationary in a place where only a few animals were even passing within a mile. We tried urging him to get up and move aroung a little, or let us move over a few miles to a place where we saw animals crossing. He refused, and said "you can go if you want, but I won't go and if you shoot something I won't help you carry it back." So we sat on a hill 1/4 mile from camp for two days (same spot) untill he decided to quit. I think he was tired and frustated at the end of a poor season. Nonetheless, my partner and I were without our guide the rest of the trip. What makes this a little more frustrating is the fact that we paid extra for 2x1 rather than 3x1. Third, is our mistake (four of us hunting together). This was our second year in a row to hunt with these guys. One guy was on a return hunt as he never had an opportunity the year before. Actually, two of the other three never had a chance at a mature bull but the boredom of the hunt got to them and they both shot immature bulls. So we all returned again, hoping the first year was a jinx. But as it turns out, it was no jinx. They didnt move us the prior year either, despite requests. I think the frustrations of not seeing game or mature game cause guys to shoot immaure animals and this bails them out of the guarantee. But the notion that they will move you if there is no game, obviously, seems bogus to me. Three of us did shoot immature bulls the last day of the second hunt. We had decided there was no way we would return and tried to make the best of it.
Highlights of Hunt:
Equipment Recommendations: High quality binoculars. Prepare for wide fluctuations in weather.
Would You Recommend This Hunt to a Friend? no
Why? Too many flaws, bogus claims.

ADDITIONAL HUNTER COMMENTS AND/OR OUTFITTER/BOOKING AGENT REBUTTAL
On return to Montreal we tried to speak with the lead person. We requested he come to our room to discuss the problems as we did not want to cause a scene or embarassment for him. But he never showed or called. At the minimum, my partner and I wanted back the extra money we paid for 2x1, since our guide quit. But we thought they might have been interested in how poorly the hunt was conducted (particularly since we are all experienced hunters and have been on many guided hunts).

ADDITIONAL HUNTER COMMENTS AND/OR OUTFITTER/BOOKING AGENT REBUTTAL
Considering all of the mixed reports filed in recent years regarding this outfit, I have decided to belatedly file a report regarding my experiences with Safari Nordik in 2008 and 2009. I believe my hunting partner, Richard Wedel, is also filing a report. I have not read his report nor corresponded with him regarding the specifics of his report. We hunted together both trips so, other than matters of individual perceptions, I don't expect there to be any significant discrepancies between our reports. This story begins with our first trip in late August 2008. Richard and I as well as our 2 other hunting partners had long been doing annual "do-it-yourself" hunting trips plus a few guided trips for turkey hunting in Mexico and bird hunting/fishing in Alaska. This was our first guided big game hunt. The flights from Oklahoma to Montreal, the lodging/orientation meeting in Montreal and the flight to Kuujjuaq went off without a hitch. We flew into Victoria camp which was being vacated by a group of 7 female hunters (including Vicki Cianciarulo of the TV show Archer's Choice) who had reportedly been the first hunters in that camp that year and who had taken 13 bulls. We split into groups of 2 hunters per guide and went out for a short first evening hunt. We saw a single group of 10 caribou with a mature bull, managed to get in front of them and Richard took a trophy bull in full velvet, green-scoring in the mid-300's. Unfortunately, though we hunted long and hard thereafter, that was the only trophy caribou even seen by any hunter in camp all week. The guides were great. The food was fantastic. The cabins were comfortable. There just weren't any mature caribou. The other 2 hunters in our group (hunting separately from Richard and I) shot immature bulls late in the week, thereby voiding their "guarantee." I never saw another adult bull all week though our guide clocked 110 km we walked on his gps. Repeated requests by all hunters in camp to be moved to other camps (as advertised) were met with denials and statements that there were no camps that were seeing caribou and the migration was getting a late start. My guide postulated that the first group was probably hunting caribou that had summered in the area and, since the mature bulls in the area had been harvested and no migrating animals had arrived, that explained the paucity of caribou. Once back in Montreal, the staff there reviewed my report, confirmed with my guide that I hadn't passed on shooting a single mature bull (that would have voided my guarantee) and stated I qualified for the guarantee and could come back for free the next year, provided I could get myself to Montreal or I could receive a 50% refund. I was able to convince the other 3 to come back the next year but we decided to sign up for a later hunt so as to avoid running into a problem with a delayed migration. That brings us to September 2009. We were told we would be hunting 3 on 1 with a guide and one of our group would be paired with another group or we could pay an extra (approx) $1,000 apiece (including myself) and hunt 2 on 1. We chose to pay the extra. My rifle did not make it to Montreal on my flight but, since we were overnighting, we anticipated it to arrive later. Unfortunately, it did not and I did not see or hear anything about it until after my hunt. I was told there would be a loaner rifle in camp for me to use. Unfortunately nobody told the camp manager (who had a rifle I later discovered but who refused to loan it to me) and Richard and I were forced to share a rifle. Gerido camp, according to Safari Nordik, was an abandoned mining camp they took over and was "pretty rough." In fact it was more spartan than Victoria camp and littered with old mining equipment, core samples etc. but comfortable and serviceable in every way and the food was fine. We drew straws with the other two men in camp for who would go with which guide and Richard and I drew the camp manager Larry Remillard. Little did we know, Larry had been guiding for Safari Nordik for a number of years but had already tendered his resignation and this was to be his last hunt. Larry took Richard and I a short distance across the lake and then we hiked approximately 1/4 to 1/2 mile up a hill to a vantage point and he informed us we would be sitting there all week until we got our caribou. While Larry is approximately 60 and somewhat overweight, Richard and I are in our mid-30's and in reasonable shape. We saw an occasional mature caribou in the distance but on that first day only cows and immature bulls came by. We repeatedly requested to go after mature bulls we could see but were informed we needed to sit tight and eventually they would come to us. We informed Larry we respected his knowledge and experience and we fully believed if we sat there all week, eventually we would get our caribou but we wanted to do a more physical hunt. He advised us to hunt wherever we felt like but he was staying right there. The second day, after not seeing much from Larry's spot, Richard and I hiked to an adjacent ridge to a higher vantage point and left Larry in his spot. We had radios and were in constant communication. Larry loudly and regularly reported to us everything he saw. We could see Larry and everything that passed by him as well as seeing the next valley over. Unfortunately there was very little moving that day except for a few small bands of cows and young bulls. When we made it back to Larry late that afternoon, he informed us that a mature bull had come up the valley by the same route the others had and passed by his spot just an hour before and if we had only listened to him and sat tight, we would have a caribou. I asked why he didn't radio us and he stated there would have been no point as we would not have been able to make it back (probably true but why did he radio us with every cow and immature bull he saw?). Richard then informed him that we could see every caribou that passed by him and no mature bulls came by (a true statement). There were no raised voices. There was no name-calling. That was it. And that was the last time Larry spoke to us that entire trip. Later that night we were informed by one of the other guides that Larry would not be guiding us or anybody else that trip. This was also when we discovered that he had resigned before we arrived. We asked the other guide who would guide us instead and he shrugged his shoulders. We were going to request to be moved to another camp so a) we would have a guide and b) I would have a gun but weather intervened and we were stuck in white-out blizzard conditions for the next 3 solid days. I hunted for at least a few hours daily all 3 days but I was the only person who even tried it and it was pointless with generally less than 100 yard visibility. The day the weather broke, Richard and I hunted 4 on 1 with the guide who was guiding our buddies. We saw no caribou but a lone cow or two. We were scheduled to fly out the next morning but, due to how far behind the charter pilots got during the blizzard, we were informed we would be staying in camp one extra day. Richard hunted 3 on 1 with the other guide and I asked to be ferried across where I hiked up to Larry's spot with a rifle one of the guys loaned me. The guys came across a large herd which they got in front of and all their tags were filled. My hike up was the beginning of one of the most memorable experiences of my life. When I reached the vantage point and caught my breath, I brought the binoculars to my eyes and beheld one of the most amazing spectacles I have seen. 1 mile distant, on the far side of an uncrossable lake, stretching literally from one horizon to the other from my left to my right, walking single file in the now deep snow came not hundreds but thousands of caribou. Interspersed in the line of which I could see neither beginning nor end, were giant sets of antlers. Suddenly the entire ordeal, nearly 2 different weeks of hunting without taking or even having an opportunity to take a trophy bull caribou were completely worth it. It didn't look like my luck was going to change based on the direction they were going but it was worth it just to see. I decided to hike to my right, paralleling the line on a high wind-blown ridge when much to my surprise, I saw the line break, the new leader taking the entire group down the hillside, now angling towards me. As they began to cross the narrow lake I realized I might now have a chance. I continued to parallel them, trying to find a way to get in front but the line was moving far faster than I could in the deep snow. I came around a knob to see the line coming around, down and over a ridge, plunging into another valley. It had taken me so long to get to this point that I could see hundreds had already gone down the valley, crossed the next lake and were already up on the far side. I managed to get within 100 yards and then sat and watched them pass me by the hundreds. I passed on many great bulls but then a group of 4 of the biggest bulls I had seen came over the hill and I picked the biggest one. They weren't stopping or even slowing down but at 100 yards, the .300 Win Mag did the trick and my bull staggered out of the line and collapsed off to the side to then be ignored by the hundreds who followed. Shortly thereafter, they stopped coming and I went to collect my trophy which was the largest I had seen. He fell a few inches short of making the book but was exactly what I was looking for. I caped and gutted him and waypointed the spot on my gps. Just then another group of 50 or so came by (some passing as close as 1 yard) containing a very nice bull though not quite the equal of the one I had. I then made one of my biggest hunting mistakes ever and I shot him. This was the afternoon of the last day of my hunt, I had another tag so I thought "Why not?". Once I had him caped and gutted and the carcass dragged alongside the other, I began my grueling 6-mile trek back to camp with two caribou heads and capes tied to my pack. Of course I should have realized when the line ended that there were more caribou somewhere. When I was less than a mile from camp, I came across them. When I left them just as it was getting dark, I still couldn't see the end of the line. I had at least 5 or 6 Boone & Crockett animals pass within 50 yards of me and many others comparable to my trophy but alas my tags were punched so all I could do was watch. I gave directions and gps coordinates of the carcasses for the camp staff to retrieve the meat. In review, when I put myself in Larry's shoes, he was finished. He had been guiding these uppity, unappreciative, demanding Americans for years and this, being his last hunt, he had finally had enough. I can't blame Safari Nordik for that. The only acknowledgement I ever had from them was at the post-hunt briefing where I was told "we were advised there were some issues." The gun issue wasn't handled well. Safari Nordik shouldn't have told me there would be a loaner gun in camp and then not arranged for it. What if we hadn't been stuck in camp that extra day? I would have gone home empty-handed a second time. Would this hunt report have been handled differently? Perhaps. Would they have sent me back a third time for free? I don't think so. As it is, I am satisfied with my hunt and my trophy. I paid extra to be guided 2 on 1 despite being back on "guarantee." Nonetheless, I do not seek restitution or an apology. I just can't bring myself to push the "yes" button on whether I would recommend this hunt to a friend.

ADDITIONAL HUNTER COMMENTS AND/OR OUTFITTER/BOOKING AGENT REBUTTAL
This was a great adventure a must for all serious hunters. I shot 2 caribou with my rifle. The first caribou was average and the second one I waited and shot a huge trophy caribou. I tagged out on ptarmigan fun bird to hunt and a lot of them. I did not bring a shotgun but, my guide let me use his shotgun. I am not sure every camp will have a gun for you to use so you might want to bring your own. One thing I must stress is that you carefully judge the animal before you shoot. I would request to hunt camp phil it has been open for migration every year. The head guide is Kelly and he runs a hell of a camp plus his wife is an awesome cook. Any questions you can always give me a call.

ADDITIONAL HUNTER COMMENTS AND/OR OUTFITTER/BOOKING AGENT REBUTTAL
Date: September 1, 2001 To: Safari Nordik From: Peter Anderson RE: Caribou Hunt

Dear Mr. Poupart,

I am taking the time to write to you because I realize that sometimes the head of a business does not always know how it is performing with its customers. I hope that is the case and you have not approved of the conduct of your employees I am reporting.

Herbert Clark and I booked a caribou hunt with Safari Nordik based upon your brochures which promised, "Safari Nordik prices might be a little higher than other outfitters: however, package contents certainly reflect the quality of service provided." The services we received were of poor quality.

We were assured by your brochure and over the telephone there were "no extra cost," and "no hidden cost." You said, "from the moment clients arrive in Montreal Safari Nordik handles every thing." These statements were not true. Your second brochure was mailed to us once we had paid in full. It changed the arrangements. Our package was to include "overnight accommodations in Montreal on the way up." We were forced to stay in very dirty and cramped facilities in Kuujjuaq the first night and the pay for our meager supper. Your representatives obviously enjoyed our circumstances. There was a hotel in Kuujjuaq in which we could have been housed but we were, of course, not told of this.

Your second brochure said that the reason we would not stay in Montreal was that 727s could not fly to Kuujjuaq; however, that was the plane in which we flew there. In Kuujjuaq, your representative said the reason was that we needed to be in camp early.

When we arrived at camp Tasitag, the camp manager, Larry, was hostile. He said that if a hunter took a shower at the wrong time he would turn off the pump. He acknowledged that we had paid for one guide for three hunters; but, we would have one guide for four hunters and if we didn't like it he would send us to a camp where there were no caribou but where we could have the arrangement we paid for. When questions were asked, he replied that if we failed to do things his way, he would, "put us on the plane." Larry was obviously eager for us to shoot our two caribou quickly and leave. He repeatedly said that the caribou were in the area now but would not be for long. We were not told any of this until we arrived in camp so we had little choice but to go along. The scene reminded me of my first days in the Army.

We were urged to check our rifles in camp to be sure they were sighted in; however, we were not given the opportunity to do so. We were told in Kuujjuaq that we could have our meat cut they way we wanted; however, we were not given the opportunity to say how we wanted it cut. We were told in Kuujjuaq that we would get sixty to seventy pounds of meat from each caribou; however, Mr. Clark and I each received sixty- eight pounds total. What happened to our other meat? Did it become "donation meat?" What happened to the meat from the third caribou one of the hunters shot? Did one of the guides take it or was it simply wasted?

You will note from my critique sheet that I rated the food and our guide, Cookie, high. The rest of the trip was of poor quality. You may also note that I am an outdoor writer. I write primarily for a publication with subscribers throughout the U.S. I intend to write about this trip. While I will not refer to Safari Nordik in the article, I will answer truthfully when I am asked which outfitter I used.

Date: September 26, 2001 To: Safari Nordik From: Herbert Clark RE: Caribou hunt

Because a hunt report 2001 form was issued to me, I assume you really want to know how your clients feel about their trip, beyond the bare statistics of how many caribou were taken.

While I was pleased to see the many caribou I did - and to take the two animals that I did- there were many aspects of my trip that had a most negative impact on me and these situations were the result of decisions and actions of your organization and personnel - not the result of outside forces or Mother Nature, over which you would have no control. In a nutshell, I feel that I paid for a "Five Star" experience and was given "Fast Food" service. I did not get that which I had been promised and for which I had paid.

I had been told that - "once the vehicle was parked in the lot in Montreal, all expenses would be covered." In point of fact, I was charged $9 for the mediocre (at best) meal at Kuujjuaq, hours after departing Montreal. I did not get that which I had been promised and for which I had paid.

I had chosen a plan that would have provided a guide for myself and two (2) other hunters. There was another hunter in our group (one guide for four hunters). I did not get that which had been promised and for which I had paid.

The hunt was to last from Wednesday (19 Sept) through - at least - Tuesday (24 Sept). Actually, there seemed to be a determined effort on the part of the guides to have each hunter collect his two (2) caribou as quickly as possible and then move the hunters out of the camp so that another group of hunters could be moved in. From Safari Nordik's point of view, this made good business sense: maximizing the prime time by having more than one group of hunters pay for the same time frame. Also, the guides could get tips from not just three (3) hunters during a given period: they got tips from four (4) hunters - twice! Smart business - lousy for customer satisfaction. I did not get that which I had been promised and for which I had paid.

I was told that - because of the work being done on the Kuujjuaq airstrip - the regular jets could not be used and that two trips by a smaller plane would take our group from Montreal to Kuujjuaq and that this change would mean that instead of Safari Nordik's putting us up in Montreal overnight we would, instead, be flown to Kuujjuaq on the first day and would overnight there, instead of in Montreal. We actually few from Montreal in the very same type of plane we were told couldn't be used and then were stuck in most unsatisfactory quarters - certainly inferior to anything that would have been provided in Montreal. A decent hotel was located in Kuujjuaq - but was not utilized. I did not get that which I had been promised and for which I had paid.

We were informed at our Kuujjuaq orientation meeting by the Safari Nordik spokesperson that we could expect "about 60 to 65 pounds." Of boned and packaged meat from each caribou. The two boxes of meat I received weighed 68 pounds - together. That amount included the cardboard boxes and packaging. While at the Montreal pick-up point I noticed meat boxes with our guide's name on them. I know he didn't shoot a caribou. I lugged out twelve caribou quarters from the kill sites to our boat. This effort on my part I volunteered - but in so doing, I relieved the guide of much toil and a few trips back and forth. And then to feel "shortchanged" in the meat. I did not get that which I had been promised and for which I had paid.

We were told that on our departure day (supposedly Tuesday, 25 Sept) our plane would arrive in Montreal at 3 p.m. Well, our plane did arrive at 3 p.m. - but our meat and antlers were not on it! We were forced to stay overnight - meal plus motel expense - and pick up the meat and antlers the next morning. I did not get that which I had been promised and for which I had paid.

You must be aware, Mr. Poupart, that Safari Nordik charges more for their hunts than do many other caribou outfitters operating in the area. I had been told that your operation was "First Class" and that I would be well satisfied with the service provided and the cost difference between Safari Nordik and the other outfitters was justified by the quality of service provided. I did not find that to be the case and feel that your organization and its personnel misstated the truth, cut corners, and "squeezed" our group so as to maximize its own profits - notwithstanding promises and understandings made as part of the plan for which we had paid - dearly.

Date: March 19, 2002 To: Peter Anderson From: Safari Nordik RE: Caribou hunt

We were very surprised to receive a fax from Mr. Don Causey of The Hunting Report along with a copy of your letter to him, and a copy of letters, yours and Mr. Herbert Clark, addressed to Henri Poupart of Safari Nordik.

With over 800 hunters a year, the task of reading, compiling and responding to hunt reports, emails, and or letters can sometimes be a lengthy process. This normally begins in December, after our fiscal year ends, and often runs through the end of January. After searching for your original letters, it came to our attention that a few letters had not yet been answered. Up until now, since receiving Mr. Causey's fax, we have been extremely busy with our 2002 show season schedule and have not be able to respond to your September 2001; for this, we apologize.

Regarding you "meager supper" and Mr. Clark's "mediocre meal" for which he was charged $9, we retained the help of a local construction company's kitchen staff in case anyone might be hungry, even though the flight to Kuujjuaq includes a meal. It is to be noted that there was no charge for this snack (small meal); Safari Nordik paid the construction company for all food. The only amount to be paid by hunters was a tip for the cook. To our knowledge this amount was to be approximately $5, it is only with your letter that we have become aware of the fact that they were instead charging $9. We are in agreement that this amount is a little excessive; however, we had no control over this situation.

Normally during the information meeting, the evening prior to your departure for camp, hunters are offered the choice between going to a productive camp with a one by four guide ratio or to a less productive camp where the one to three guide ratio can be held up. We apologize if this was not the case in your situation.

We do have additional camps available should the caribou migration switch paths. However, should one camp be experiencing a "hole" in the migration (a few days without as many caribou) another camp may be doubled up. We do not particularly like to do this; however, we have started this practice at the demand of clients who wish to be on game from the very beginning of their hunt rather than be moved to another camp a few days later.

It is unfortunate you feel as though your group was "squeezed" as you state, "...to maximize...(Safari Nordik's)...own profits..." Rest assured we hire sufficient personnel to run all camps from mid August to the end of September and sufficient personnel to provide each hunter booked with the type of package purchased.

With the construction work on the Kuujjuaq airstrip terminated ahead of schedule, the use of a 727 instead of the 737 was permitted for your flight. However, with reservations already made, it was impossible to make any changes, which might have allowed you to spend the night in Montreal rather than in Kuujjuaq.

By having our clients spend this night in Kuujjuaq rather than in Montreal, we managed to increase the hunt by half a day. The building used for overnight accommodations in Kuujjuaq was the best building available in Kuujjuaq apart from the hotel. Unfortunately, the hotel is not able to accommodate the number of hunters we host each year.

Regretfully, at this time we cannot explain why your meat and antlers did not return to Montreal with you. Normally, should First Air have to reduce its cargo load, we are informed as to which boxes will not be on the plane; in turn we can advise our clients.

As to the amount or lack of meat received, normally one receives a total of 60 to 65 pounds of processed meat per animal. If this wasn't the case, our representative in Montreal should have been advised of the situation. Surely this problem could have been rectified with meat donated by hunters not interested in taking back any or all of their meat. As for the box of meat with the guide's name on it, guides are entitled to their own two animals which can be taken at any time and often hunters will donate their meat to guides as a tip.

We were quite surprised to read of the problems you encountered with Larry. Problems with our camp personnel are not a common occurrence. Truthfully, we rarely receive any thing but praise for all our staff, especially Larry.

Your dissatisfaction with your 2001 hunt is quite obvious. We hope to have adequately responded to the issues raised in your letter. In lieu of you dissatisfaction, we are willing to offer you a discount of $750 off the regular price, for a 2002 hunt or $500 off a 2003 or 2004 hunt.

Should you have any questions or wish to book your return trip, do not hesitate to call us.

ADDITIONAL HUNTER COMMENTS AND/OR OUTFITTER/BOOKING AGENT REBUTTAL
To: Safari Nordik From: Bernard L. Rabbito Re: Hunting in Quebec Date: September 24, 1999

I am writing this letter on behalf of my wife, Candice Grimm, and myself to let you know that we were very dissatisfied with several important aspects of our recent hunting trip with your company. While I won't speak for others, I can assure you that many of our concerns were echoed by all other hunters in our camp.

The specific complaints we have are as follows:

Upon arriving in Kuujjuaq we were promptly transferred to Camp Real and told by you that we would be hunting that afternoon. When we arrived in camp we were informed that we could not hunt until the following day. The obvious reason we could not hunt was that there were hunters afield who were not supposed to be there, and there was a guide out hunting for the purpose of filling his own tags! As a result, the 5 1/2 day hunt we had contracted for became five days. Moreover, the highly migratory caribou we were hunting were in the process of migrating out of the area. Thus, for the remainder of our hunt there were few caribou to choose from; seven of the thirteen hunters in our camp had to be flown to another camp to fill their tags, and, of those remaining, several took only one animal.

The next surprise came when we were told that there were not enough guides. We paid for three hunters with one guide. We were sent out with four and five hunters per guide. There were only three guides available for 13 hunters. When I complained to the camp manager, He said, "I'll see what I can do." Nothing further was said nor did additional guides arrive. In fact, the guide who had been hunting the day we arrived (and killed two nice caribou on our time), was flown out of camp and never guided any of our group. Your brochure shows a difference of $825 between a 2 on 1 and 3 on 1 hunt, and $500 difference between 2 on 1 and 1 on 1. I am therefore requesting that you reimburse us the difference of $825 per person.

Finally, I can only say that the food was some of the worst I've ever had in a base camp hunting operation. I'll spare you the complete menu, but there was very little meat or vegetables (except for the ptarmigan our hunters shot), but the final insult was being served a dinner of macaroni and cheese that had been cooked the night before and re-heated for our dinner. That was all we were served for dinner that evening! The other dinners weren't much better. After talking to others in our group who had been moved to another camp, it seems the problem was in our camp. But one has to wonder what became of the better quality food that should have been sent to our camp and served to us just as in the other camp!

I am not an inexperienced hunter. I have taken 30 to 40 outfitted trips in the United States, Canada, Alaska, Africa and Russia. I have also been on guided fishing trips in many U.S. and foreign destinations, so I know what can go wrong. But not having enough guides, shorting us a half-day of hunting, and scrimping on the food are simply violations of the contract and of trust. Since you did not perform what you agreed to, I am requesting that you reimburse me and my wife a total of $1,650 U.S. for the difference in guiding and a reasonable amount for the half day lost and the poor food. I am not interested in credits for the future, since I have hunted Quebec caribou three times and my wife has twice.

I look forward to hearing from you soon.
