Steve Porto took his mountain caribou trophy in Canada's Northwest Territories.

Caribou Christmas. If you happen to look up on Christmas Eve, you might see a miniature sleigh with eight tiny reindeer. But if it's a big caribou you want instead, look up to northern Canada for mountain caribou, the largest of the North American caribou. Just ask Robert Duhadaway (9389) , who took a huge 429 B&C mountain caribou in the Yukon with Michial von Harten of Yukon Big Game Outfitters this September. His trophy comfortably surpasses the 390-inch minimum for the B&C record book.

As for getting to the Great White North without a sleigh? A helicopter works great, according to Mike Daley (9319). “No horses is my kind of hunt,” says Daley, who flew into spike camp by helicopter instead of packing in on horseback. He hunted both moose and mountain caribou in Northwest Territories with Clint Andros of Nahanni Butte Outfitters. “The fall colors on the mountains were spectacular, and getting both species the first day was amazing, and extremely tiring! We got back to our tent at 2 am after taking care of the moose.” In British Columbia, a close call with a pack horse didn't stop William Paulin (8949) from having a great caribou hunt with guides Blair and Rebecca Miller of Folding and Terminus Mountain Outfitters. “What a team! I have never had better. I would love to go back and do it again. This hunt pushed me to the max a couple of times. This was after I was bucked off and then kicked by the pack horse!”

Mike Boritz (9315) found his mountain caribou in Northwest Territories with Glen Stevens of MacKenzie Mountain Outfitters. “Great outfitter with a well-known reputation. It was very warm, which made it a little more difficult to come across a large number of caribou, but all in all the trophy quality was way above average.” Steve Porto (9288) took a “beautiful mountain caribou with hard horns and a white cape” with Ram Head Outfitters. “Great guides and abundant game.” Brent Wilson (8953) checked in with a report on Arctic Rivers Guide Service in Alaska. “Great time and great camp camaraderie.” Lloyd Moler (8958), who has now hunted six times with Arctic Rivers, killed a “super caribou” on his latest trip.

Joseph Adducci (9255) headed all the way to Nunavut for arctic island caribou (the smallest variety of caribou) and musk ox. “Dress in layers. It’s 30 to 50 degrees in August!” Travel any further north and you might just find yourself in red-nosed reindeer country!


Don Detwiler's hunted the Tian Shan Mountains of Kyrgyzstan for this mid-Asian ibex.

Hunting the Wild East. Back in September we rounded up subscriber reports on ibex hunts in Spain. Well, here are some ibex reports from further afield in Asia. In Kazakhstan, Lawrence Seidler (9253) found plentiful game with Erdogan Avci Safaris. “We saw four males, two shooters and six females and babies on the first day. Also maral stag.” He took a nice representative mid-Asian ibex. “Kazakhstan is an amazing place, and Erdogan and local guides know it well.”

“This is a true mountain hunt; be in the best shape possible. Bring Hydrate-and-Recover mix,” advises Donald Detwiler (9331) of his hunt for mid-Asian ibex in Kyrgyzstan with Asian Mountain Outfitters' guide Bektemirov Kulu. Ibex aficionado Mychal Murray (8984) hunted the bezoar ibex of Turkey with Caprinae Safaris. “Turkey is an amazing place to travel. The hunting is good, but the touring is probably even better.”

Ibex are not always plentiful on Asian hunts, but it's worth the trip, according to Frank Greiner (9459) who traveled to Mongolia’s Altai Mountains with Mongol Safaris. “It was disappointing spending four days without seeing a trophy ram, but they had a backup area that produced. So, all was well in the end. The guides in Mongolia are extremely competent and hard-working individuals.”

Braulio Romero reports walking 18 miles a day to get this Lord Derby eland trophy in Central African Republic.

Giant Eland, the “Moose” of Africa. A giant eland is one of central Africa's most emblematic trophies. It's no surprise that Brian Mortz (9221) says that taking eland was his favorite part of a safari with Club Faune in CAR. Eland was also at the top of the list for Braulio Romero (9094) , who hunted with PH Christophe Moro of Central African Wildlife Adventures in CAR. He took his trophy at 6 am on his first day and spent some time looking for a second eland. “Thorough hunt. If you are seeking giant eland it can take more than a week to connect, walking 18 miles a day. When you achieve your goal it is one of the most rewarding hunts you'll ever have.”

Michael Benben (9101) harvested a 122 2/8 SCI eland with Faro East in Cameroon. “This is the concession and the team if you want giant eland, western roan, and western buffalo. Anti-poaching teams have allowed the game population to explode here.” Nick White (9068) travelled to Cameroon to target giant eland, taking a 47 1/2-inch specimen with PH Pierre Guerrini of Faro West. “A good Lord Derby on the third day of hunting! Success is near 100 percent here.” Manuel Camacho (8676) suffered through a multi-day airport hell that will make you shudder, but he still managed a successful hunt with Pierre Guerrini. “Maybe the 50-inch Lord Derby eland was worth it after all.” That is high praise for a single trophy. Enjoy!
