Hey All - Would like to do the Seagrim Chain at some point, question though,
Is there a better time of year to go if I am hoping to see some Caribou in the calving grounds? or is that a long shot at any time?

Thanks!

Saw a caribou on Bain Lake at the beginning of July and we have seen several in WCPP on late August trips.

They are present throughout the area all year around. If you really want to see them you should set up a discrete camp on a shoreline and wait, otherwise it is just luck. We had one in the campsite one night.

Maybe use Google earth to identify larger blocks of older forest with no logging roads or ATV trails if you want to increase your chances.

Good Luck!

A tale is told that near the Seagrim plant in Gimli their is convergence where a river of rye meets a river of cola just before the falls - dangerous paddling to be sure . . . probably safer in an oaken barrel.

From Wikipedia: Today, Crown Royal is produced solely at the Crown Royal distillery at Gimli, on the shores of Lake Winnipeg, Manitoba, Canada. It was also produced in Waterloo, Ontario until the plant there closed in 1992. Daily production of Crown Royal uses 10,000 bushels of grain and requires 750,000 imperial gallons (3,400,000 L; 900,000 US gal) of water.[3] The whisky produced at the Manitoba distillery is stored in 2 million barrels, located in 46 warehouses over 5 acres (2 ha) of land. The whisky is then blended and bottled in Amherstburg, Ontario.[4][5][6][7]

2006 sales of Crown Royal amounted to over US $500M.
