Hunters fly to Anticosti from Mont Joli, on the Quebec mainland. The flight is about 45 minutes and costs $350 round-trip with a maximum of 75 pounds of luggage. Up to two deer, processed and boxed by the outfitter, can be shipped on the return trip at no extra charge. Sepaq Anticosti, my outfitter, takes 3,500 hunters per year, with the season opening August 28 and ending December 19. A four-day hunt is $1,479 if you bring your own food and sleeping bag (food can be purchased on the island), or $1,949 including food and accommodations. A six-day hunt is $1,599 do-it-yourself, or $2,159 with room and board included. All costs are in Canadian dollars; as we went to press the exchange rate was about $1.33 Canadian for each U.S. dollar.
