ANIMAL: Quebec-Labrador Caribou
WHEN: Early 1980s
WHERE: Northern Quebec
METHOD: Ambush on migration route.
MEASURMENT, SCORE: N/A
OUTFITTER: Jack Hume Adventures Inc.
SPECIAL CHALLENGES, DANGERS: Martin's first Quebec-Labrador caribou was well over the minimum 300 inches, but an outfitter inadvertently sawed the skull in half. (Skulls must be whole to count, according to P&Y rules.)
Martin has since made the long journey to northern Quebec many times, but has yet to even get a shot at a caribou anywhere near the minimum. It's either feast or famine, migration or no migration, with these animals.
Even though Martin has not gotten an unofficial minimum 325 Quebec-Labrador caribou, any Quebec-Labrador caribou by bow counts toward the Archery Super Slam award. He is, however, working to again go back and take a book animal so all would be at least P&Y minimums in his slam. Right now, 24 of the 28 are P&Y minimum animals.
