We flew into the lodge from Thompson on August 24th. The weather was good and we found the camp in good condition when we arrived – other than damage to our laundry building and some siding ripped off the main lodge by black bears.
On the flight into the lodge we sighted numerous polar bears relaxing along the Hudson Bay coast to the east of York Factory. We also sighted a few small flocks of both dark and white geese.
Our 2022 season was unusual, in that we experienced warm-to-hot weather throughout the season. The temperature didn’t dip below freezing the entire time we were at the lodge. In late August we had a few days with daytime high temperatures reaching 93 F. There were several days in September where the temperatures reached into the mid-80’s with evening temperatures staying well above 40 F for most of the season.
Our 2022 season was a mixed bag with our hunters enjoying some good duck hunting, as well as excellent hunting for dark geese for most of the season. The unusually warm, dry weather with light winds that predominated this year, along with another good crop of berries as well as wild celery, made the snow goose hunting a challenge, as the snows had no incentive to migrate.
Guests using the helicopter to give them access to the areas near the lodge where the snows were congregating were generally more successful than the hunters choosing to hunt our island, although we did have some good island hunts in mid-September. The snows tended to stay near the coast and a couple of new blinds we built at the beginning of this season saw some good action from migrating snows, as well as dark geese.
Our guests and staff enjoyed some exceptional brook trout fishing again this year, as water levels were low most of the season.
To summarize our 2022 season, the duck hunting and brook trout fishing were excellent, the dark goose hunting was good and the hunting for snow geese was challenging.
