Excellent tip and article!

I being working on a caribou camp for 4 year's (I am leaving sunday for my fith year Thumbs up ) and lot's of tip on this article are very important.

Just nothing was mention about the guide to many people don't realize how much they can learn about the caribou or the natural habitat or even a different culture (we have inuit guide at camp) by simply asking question guide will not alway go a head and talk about there life or the land they live or work for a period of time unless you ask them ...establishing a good commucation with your guide is important.

Inuit guide with client ...that became a friend!

Let them know what kind of animal you want (for meat or trophy?)
Let them know your experience with a bow, riffle ect.
No nead to get up before dawn for caribou hunting , caribou are migratory animal they are there find ....there not ...there somewhere else lol
They move almost constantly.
Here a image of caribou that are track by satellite in Nothern Québec (nunavik)

In Québec 1 millions caribou inhabit the toundra crossing towsen of miles in water and land ...one day there the other somewhere else ...

I like the suggestion on the artcicle of making sure you bring your fishing tackle in your trip
