Safari Nordik US Agent, Ken Gingrich thanks you for your interest in their caribou hunts. Safari Nordik has been in business for over 25 years. Safari Nordik is the largest outfitter in the North for caribou hunts. We have over 32 camp sites to put you in a camp where the caribou are migrating. The Leif River Herd population includes over 750,000 caribou. We have six camps North of the Leif River. We also hunt parts of the George River Herd which has a population of over 600,000 caribou. Safari Nordik camps are in the area South of the Leif River. We cover over 15,000 square miles. Safari Nordik offers you a guaranteed move if needed. When using this method we had to move less than 3% of our hunters over the last three years. Safari Nordik was the first outfitter to offer a guarantee policy. If you do not kill an adult bull, you can return free the following year, or get a 50% refund.
All hunting packages are worry free and contain no hidden costs. From the moment you arrive in Montreal, Safari Nordik handles everything. Should you wish to fly to Montreal, Safari Nordik can make all the necessary arrangements from any International US airport.
2008 looks extremely good: the animals being healthy and this season's yearlings were healthy and fat. Again the 2007 season was almost perfect! That is largely due to Safari Nordik's 24 year knowlege of organizing caribou hunts, but especially to the experiences and knowledge of Johnny May. Johnny has been Safari Nordik's partner since the beginning. He lives in Kuujjuaq year round. Johnny, owner of Safari Nordik, has spent all of his life in the tundra. He is among the world's best bush pilots of his era with over 30,000 hours of flying over that magnificent country, watching and studying caribou behavior.
Following Johnny's advice, I am able to select which of Safari Nordik's 32 possible camp locations I must open to put you on the migration and insure a successful hunt. At any given time we keep 8 to 12 camps running, deciding your final destination only when you arrive. With that unique system, all of our hunters are able to harvest mature bulls respecting fair chase! This is why Safari Nordik guarantees mature bulls!
My name is Ken Gingrich. I have been hunting and guiding for caribou for over 35 years. I have developed a very close relationship with Safari Nordik over the last 15 years as an associate and extremely effective sales representative. As often as time allows me, I coordinate clients in groups to the arctic where we share the awesome experience of hunting in Quebec, Canada. There are over 40 outfitters in Quebec. There can be 5 to 20 outfitters represented at the Outdoor Shows.
There are 2 kinds of hunts, guided and unguided hunts. Some outfitters call these drop-camp, self guided or European Plan. An unguided hunt consists of a camp manager with 6 to 12 hunters in camps. Some of these will furnish food, but no cooks. You have to pack your own caribou back into camp, approximately 90 lbs, cut the four quarters off and the last knuckle, to reduce the weight.
Safari Nordik also offers guided hunts, this could be 1 guide to 1 hunter, 1 on 2, 1 on 3, or 1 on 4. The guide quarters and capes your caribou, and packs it for you. He will usually put 2 of the hunters on a lookout and will stay with the one hunter. The following day he will rotate men. He is there to help you select a good quality bull.
I do 15 Outdoor Shows a year and hear many horror stories of disappointed hunters. Some outfitters will tell you that they have a high percentage of kills. They do not tell you that this percentage is both bulls and cows combined. Caribou hunting is not a guaranteed hunt.
