FAQs

FAQs

1.Do you have a wound policy?

Yes we do, you are allowed to shoot 1 bear wounded or killed. A wound is drawing blood. This policy may seem harsh, strict to some hunters especially if it is just a flesh wound but we put a ton of time, effort and money into every bait and we only have so many shooter bears hitting our baits every year. Even if you only flesh wound a bear he most likely won’t be back, at least not that year so we have to limit how often that happens. It just wouldn’t be fair to the next week’s hunters. If you do feel it is just a flesh wound you can sit for the same bear and if you kill it, it will only count as one kill.

2. Are the cabins accessible by road?

Yes! One of the best parts of Driftwood Outfitters is that our main lodge and cabins, each lake and every single outpost cabin is accessible by road. You do not need to fly here.

3. Is there electricity?

Yes. The lodge and all cabins has electricity.

4. What kind of boats and motors do you have?

The main lodge has spacious 16-foot deep-V boats with Mercury 25HP motors. Some lakes have boats that are a little smaller.

5. Should I bring my own lifejacket?

We provide life jackets for everyone except children. We can never be sure of what sizes people will need and feel most comfortable wearing so it’s best that you bring your own. Lifejackets are mandatory for everyone going out on a boat.

6. Should I bring my own fishing equipment?

Yes. Bring one main rod and reel and one back-up of each.

7. Should I bring my own hunting rifles and related equipment?

Yes.

8. Can I take my fish home?

Yes! Your guide will filet your fish for you and you can stick it in your cooler for the journey home. There’s nothing like fresh fish and besides, you’ll want to share the edible results of your trip with friends and family back home!

9. What types of wildlife can we expect to see?

The beauty of being out in the wild and away from larger cities is that you may come across animals you wouldn’t see otherwise. Fisherman trolling in their boats frequently come across beavers building dams, nearby loons singing in the water, eagles soaring above the tree lines, and other animals.

10. What languages do you speak?

We provide services in French and English.

11. Should we tip our guide?

Many people offer gratuities as a kind gesture of thanks and gratitude for working hard to make sure you enjoy your adventure and stay with us. Outfitter rates do not include gratuities and many people are unsure of what is customary regarding gratuities for guiding services. Please note that any gratuities are at your discretion and are strictly voluntary. The actual amount typically varies but about 10-15% is common and is very much appreciated. Our guides strive to make your wilderness experience a more comfortable and enjoyable one.

12. What if there’s an emergency?

Telephone available for emergency use.

13. What if I should need hospital or medical services while in Québec?

Visitors to Canada are strongly urged to obtain health insurance before leaving their home country. Canadian hospital and medical services are excellent, but an extended hospital stay can be costly. If you are taking medication prescribed by your doctor, it’s a good idea to bring along extra medications and a copy of your prescription in case you need to have it renewed by a doctor in Canada.

14. What are the Regulations for importing meat / wild game products into the US?

Importation of Wild Meat to the US Regulations can be found here.

15. What are the policies for entering Canada if you’ve previously had a DUI?

DUI is a serious offence in Canada and the officer can refuse you entry into Canada if you have been convicted of this. For more information on this, click here.

16. Is license and insurance required on ATVs?

Yes
