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.
Wind is one of the most crucial variables in any kind of big game hunting. It helps level the playing field between a hunter with a scoped rifle and the game animals being hunted. This is not novel information. Any hunter who has consistent success in the field knows this. I have tried a couple different techniques for keeping track of the wind. Here are a couple.
The most simple and obvious is to just stay cognizant of it. It is amazing how slight of a breeze you can sense if you just pay...
