I don't live in NFLD but have hunted there many times around that time. It will start getting cold at that time of year with mornings in the 40-50's The province WILL be wet so footwear is of upmost importance. Shots on caribou are usually pretty close so a 20X scope is not needed. It is a great hunting area. Hope you enjoy.
Here is an inexpenive and effective deer feeder I made recently.
No batteries to go dead, no hoisting it up in the tree, plenty of capacity, very easy to fill - so far, I love it.
I have made two of these and they are easy to build.
An empty 55 gallon drum, some 2x4's, some PVC tubing and fittings, a little bit of hardware and some paint - and you are ready to go.
I designed it so you can stand on the lower rung and fill it - the top is about 6.5 feet above the ground.
It holds about 375...
