A few buddies and I hunted with Peter Martin of kap river outfitters. As soon arrived they made us feel right at home. From the excellent food prepared by terry (Peters wife) to the excellent accommodations at their home. We were right at home. We combined our hunt with a snowmobiling trip. Peter Martin and his outstanding guides have the knowledge far beyond any other guide services we have hunted with. Don’t hesitate to give peter a call go enjoy the great north with an excellent knowledgeable outfit. Be ready to shoot fast!! Looking forward to duck hunt with Peter next fall
Peter Martin and his guides are very well experienced in wolf hunting. Wolf hunting is not easy. In fact it is very hard. It is a lot of hard work and done in very cold weather. Average temps for my hunt in January were 20 and 30 degrees below zero. Peter and his guides work very hard to make it happen. Peter and his crew set and maintain over 60 baits. The preferred plan is to drive the roads looking for fresh tracks leading to a bait site. Once a track is found hunters are stationed by snowmobile and sled around a block of forest around the bait site as 1 or 2 trackers follow the wolf tracks trying to push the wolves to a stationed hunter for a shot. This is exciting and a productive way to hunt. As you may be able to get 2 or 3 hunts in depending on when and where you might find wolves. So the more hunters the easier it is to use this method. Another method is to use calls. Animals in distress calls or wolf calls can be effective if they are in hearing range. But wolves are smart and are deadly afraid of people. If they have the slightest idea that humans are in the area they won’t show. Another productive method is to sit over an active bait site in a heated blind for an ambush. It has the same challenges as above but not as mobile so discipline is needed to fight the boredom till they show up. After a long day of hunting it was a great relief to come home to a warm, comfortable, clean place (which is actually Peter’s home.) and have a great home cooked meal and lots of it, which is the highlight of everyday. Pete packs you a lunch for the day afield and breakfasts are continental style. I’m an American and a breakfast kind of guy so at first I didn’t care for the “light breakfast” but it did serve us well as we didn’t have to poop in the woods at 20 to 30 below zero. I’m an “experience hunter”. That is, I’m there to hunt for sure and always hope to get a good representative of the animal but am happy with the quality of the experience. So I learned a lot from Peter and his guides. That said, I think I can speak for all the hunters in camp at that time and say that we were disappointed that for whatever reason we did not have more game sightings them we did. Bottom line is I’ll be back.…
This was an outstanding experience of hunting wolves. Peter and guides do an excellent job of getting you an opportunity to take a shot. Highlight of each day was the dinner prepared by Peter's wife, Terry. She is a gourmet cook and each meal was a delight. Outstanding accommodations, and I could not have been more pleased. I intend to go again.
Loved it felt like growing up at home never a dull moment clean house great food and when you got back after a hunt all the privacy you needed non stop action if you crave a challenge this is for you with good old fashion home cooked meals and all the comforts of home! Great people
I have hunted with Peter multiple times and I believe every trip someone has taken a wolf and sometimes we got more than one. Wolves are very hard to hunt and few guides know how to hunt them. Peter has years of experience and success. The conditions can be tough, especially the temperatures, but if you want a real chance to harvest this elusive and majestic animal then try Kapriver. Just seeing a wolf in the wild is amazing. Besides the hunting, the accommodations are very comfortable and Peter’s wife Terry is a FANTASTIC cook. Every night she prepares a meal that can’t be beat. The family style dining enjoying Terry’s delicious dinners is worth the trip.
