Anticosti island is a maritime coastal region, situated in the middle of the gulf of the St. Lawrence. It is surrounded by the Atlanic ocean and the cold water currents of Labrador. The islands environment is subjected to many annual temperature and precipitation fluctuations. Considering that the Safari Anticosti hunting season extends from the late August periods to the begining of December, hunters must adjust their hunting garments to their selected periods of hunting. Please refer to our web page chart that indicates the average annual temperatures and precipitations for Anticosti island.
Note : Do not bring an extra rifle. We have plenty available in case you damage yours.
The Safari Anticosti sector encompasses most of the entire eastern part of Anticosti Island or 25% of the entire island land mass. We have 2 private airports that serve our 3 distinct sectors of Chaloupe River, Bell River and Salmon River. One airport is situated at Salmon River in the north east of the island and another one at Bell River, in the south east. The Salmon River runway is 5,500 feet in length, paved, lighted and jet accessible. The Bell River runway is not paved and 6,000 feet in length.
We suggest a variable power scope that can be adjusted to very short ranges while stalking ( 50 yards ) and increased to longer ranges in open swamp, shoreline and bog areas. ( 250 yards )
