Bowhunting Woodland Caribou in Canada

The Woodland Caribou hunts in Newfoundland are normally done as a week long hunt, and can be combined with moose & black bear. We recommend a two week hunt if you are serious about taking a moose and caribou. It makes an excellent single species hunt, and can be done as a 1x1 or 2x1 bowhunt. Limit is one caribou per hunter. NFLD is a great place for spotting and stalking the woodland caribou. A lot of cover, and broken terrain. The caribou come into rut early in October and we recommend these hunts prior to peak of rut, as the bulls meat becomes less than desirable. The minimum P&Y score on Woodlands is 220.

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 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.
