I hunted Anticosti in October of 2005. I had a great time. We drove up to Mont -Joli, about a 12 hour drive from Central Mass. I don't know if you remember, but we drove up in that wicked rain storm that hit the east coast and it followed us up all the way to Canada. The puddle jumper plane ride in 50-60 mph winds made for an interesting 45 minute ride.(I'm not crazy about flying to begin with). We went through Sepaq Anticosti, they usually have a booth at the sportsmans show in Worcester. They met us at the airport, brought us to buy our license and brought us to the grocery store before we took the hour ride to our cabin. I would consider the American plan which includes food, we chose the European plan, it was a little cheaper, but after a day out on the trails, the last thing I wanted to do was start cooking a meal. We stayed at camp Chicotte-La-Mer. We all filled our tags. Deer are all over the place. I took a doe and an 8 pointer, that weighed 175lbs. the biggest in camp that week. That is a big deer for the island, they grow em' a little smaller but the numbers are incredible. It is still hunting and not a game farm. I would go back in a heartbeat, i'm looking at 2011. The deer meat is the best i've tasted-really, the deer eat seaweed and evergreens, makes for a mild flavor. If you need more info, shoot me an email

Don't assume that when fall comes, or hunting season, that the big bucks, and big bulls leave. Whitetail deer bucks especially, simply hide. And they hide very well. Mule deer bucks may leave a little. Bull elk may leave, but don't assume they do. Don't assume any of them do. I mean - where would they leave to? (Just another place where, for the most part, they would be hunted.) These big animals have the ability to hide in very small, very obscure places. So, embrace the fact (...
