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.
