A typical hunt goes as follows:

Day 1

Early morning departure from Thompson on a wheeled 9 seater Cessna Caravan.

Arrival on Munroe Lake Lodge's 3300 foot airstrip, greeted by Michelle and Robert.

Your gear will be brought down to the dock and loaded on the floatplane.

The floatplane brings you to the caribou camp where the guides and staff greet you and get you set up for the first day.

We sight you in at app. 100 yards; fill out the necessary paperwork, grab a bite or a lunch and you are hunting before noon.

Day 2 - 5

7:00 A.M. Breakfast - Every morning is a simple, hearty, different breakfast to get up fuelled up for your day.

As soon as you are done with breakfast and lunches are made, you and your guide, either by boat or on foot, are on the tundra looking for that big trophy bull.

6:00 P.M. Supper. Michelle makes many of the meals ahead of time, so all we do is warm up excellent dishes such as chilli, stews, steaks, etc. We often add local treats such as caribou or lake trout.

Hunters coming in early or looking for a little break often go fishing. Several trophy lake trout were taken within minutes to camp in the past.

As the sun sets and the northern light come out, giving you a display you will not soon forget, hunters retire for the night for a comfortable, well-deserved rest.

The guides work hard processing your animal in the butchering tent and carefully tag your meat, rack, and cape to make sure your trip home in uneventful.

Please let us know if you are flying out of Thompson as we will have to discuss options with your meat, rack, and cape.

On the 3rd or 4th day, Robert comes in with the float plane with supplies for ther next hunt and takes out as much meat, racks, and capes that are available.

Last Day

Morning departure on the floatplane back to Munroe Lake Lodge.

At Munroe we transfer all your baggage, meat, and large racks to the Cessna Caravan on the airstrip.

The Caravan brings you to Thompson, but because of varying fall weather we recommend you make your travel arrangements from Thompson as late in the day as possible.
