I had a job for 35 years that kept me from taking time off in September through November. When I decided to retire the first thing I promised myself was to hunt in September. I did what all good hunters should do and that was to research and talk to as many people as possible to sort out the numerous outfitters. Once I had narrowed the list down I made sure that I met and talked in person with each of the outfitters at one of their shows. I meet the Webber’s Lodge staff at the Chicago show in January on a snowy windy day. Once I had met them, I was sold and booked a combination fly-in Manitoba Caribou and Moose hunt. Once I sent in my deposit and made that commitment I hoped I was right. Well, I was and here is the story.
