I know this is an old post but I thought that I would chime in. I was looking to at going on a Woodlans Caribou hunt this year in Newfoundland. The prices were around $6,200 and it is my understanding that in a few years you might not be able to get tags anymore. When I called my outfitter, that I have hunted moose with before and had good experiences with, he told me that he has raised the price to $10,000. His explanation was that the other outfitters in the area were charging that much so he felt he could. Well, I had to back out because of it. It really pissed me off too.
That is a huge jump in price. About a 50 percent hike. I wish him and his future clients the best of luck but I won't be there to witness it.
One of the things I struggle with when afield is keeping my rifle clean and in good working order. Small amounts of dust and dirt collect moisture; moisture can freeze rendering your action immovable when you need it most. I have seen this happen on multiple occasions, and over time, I’ve learned the cause and how to prevent this from happening.
The first thing that you need to avoid before going afield is leaving excess oil on the gun. Oil will trap dirt and sand in all the wrong places....
