I am looking at booking a caribou hunt for sept. of 2007 i am looking at 2 outfiters they are Club Chambeaux and Safari Nordik if anyone has any info about the outfiters i am looking at i would like to hear what you have to say Thanks
while i have not gone yet, i am going this year with Safari Nordik. After all is said and done, they are very similar with a few notable exceptions. First of all, the accomodations at chambeaux are a little better. Secondly, club chambeaux "owns" their planes which means they will always have first priority when moving hunters. Now for Safari Nordik advantages. The terrain they hunt is a little more forgiving. What i mean by this is the ground in not a soggy and therefor easier to traverse. The accomodations are lesser but by no means are they bad. The tents or sidewall cabins are all heated with running hot water as well. Safari Nordik has as big of a market share as Chambeaux so they can move hunters just as easily. and lastly, safari nordik is still offering their 2 bull guarentee. While club chambeaux doesn't offer the same, their success is equal. An as you probably saw the Safari Nordik is a little cheaper but the big difference is the discount that they offer for minors, which was a big factor for me because i am taking my 12 year old son!
I hunted with Club Chambeaux in september of 2001 and took 2 bulls there were no caribou in the immediate area so in the 4th day they took us to the caribou and we all tagged out overall it was a good hunt make sure you bring a fishing pole some great big pike rome those waters
I hunted with Club Chambeaux in 2001 and hunt a great hunt also had great fishing bring your pole anyway they do own their own planes and they gurantee you to be mpoved if you dont see caribou its a good outfit you might want to check out Jame Hume he has an excellent reputation
Out here in Colorado, and in the units that I haunt, it is a tricky game to figure out how far to pack in on a rifle hunt. You want to get away from the masses that have moved game away from the roads but might want to stay close enough that you are taking advantage of the animals forced movements. There is no universal distance but I like the 1.5 to 4 mile range for day hunts where I am not planning on bivying out. This keeps you in that productive buffer zone where the animals are really...
