Bowhunting Central Canadian Barren Ground Caribou

The Central Canadian Barren Ground Caribou bowhunting has been fabulous over the past several years. The bowhunts take place in eastern and northwestern Nunavut, as well as northern Manitoba. This country is dotted with large and small lakes, and we again, utilize the services of two different outfitters, both with good history with bowhunters.

The bowhunting costs here are very close to the same regardless of which outfitter you choose. Some trips are booked, all inclusive from Edmonton. Others are booked all inclusive from Yellowknife. Limit on these bowhunts is two caribou per hunter. When bowhunting caribou, you always need to consider additional costs as well in shipping home antlers, capes, and meat.

General description of caribou

There are five different species of caribou found in North America, as recognized by the Pope and Young Club. BSC continuously researches the best opportunities for bowhunters to pursue this magnificent antlered game animal. The five species, while all belonging to the same species that includes the domesticated reindeer, are broken into 5 categories, for record keeping purposes, by geographical boundaries. The categories are Woodland (taken only in Newfoundland), Quebec - Labrador (taken in those two providence's), Central Canadian Barren Ground (taken on Baffin Island, and in a portion of the NWT's east of the Mackenzie River and west of Hudson's Bay), Mountain Caribou (taken in Alberta, British Columbia, and portions of the Yukon and the MacKenzie Mountains of the NWT's), and Barren Ground Caribou (taken in Alaska, and portions of the Yukon). BSC has a few outfitters we recommend for each species, across North America. Like other species, we have hunted with the vast majority of the outfitters we recommend.
