Barren Ground Grizzly
Join us for a top-notch hunt on the Canadian tundra!
A Barren Ground Grizzly hunt in northern Canada is something few get to experience! Nunavut’s population is thriving and we’re excited to offer you the opportunity to hunt these magnificent animals on the vast tundra that they call home.
The growth of the grizzly population has enabled us to offer an incredibly unique opportunity to a select few hunters. The Barren Ground Grizzly, well-known for its aggressive behavior, fears nothing and no one. These bears surely are the kings of their tundra domain!
These Arctic giants are also very nomadic and a spring hunt allows us to use snow machines to cover vast areas of the bears’ range. Hunters will have the choice of driving their own snow machines, or riding in comfortable komatiks (large wooden sleds) towed by guides.
Barren Ground Grizzly bears are similar in size to their mountain cousins found in the Yukon and interior Alaska. Average bears will be in the 6-6 ½- foot range, with exceptional Bears reaching up to eight feet! The pelts of these great bears at this time of year will be incredible as well.
Ryan St. John, founder of Henik Lake Adventures, has been hunting these bears for the past 10 years and has a success rate of 90%!

ENTRY INTO CANADA
For guests travelling from the U.S.
If you are a U.S. citizen, ensure you carry proof of citizenship such as a passport, birth certificate, a certificate of citizenship or naturalization, a U.S. Permanent Resident Card, or a Certificate of Indian Status along with photo identification.
For international guests
The Government of Canada requires that all travellers carry a valid passport because it is the only reliable and universally-accepted travel and identification document for the purpose of international travel.
You will need to arrive in Winnipeg the day before your hunt starts and overnight. The next morning you will fly up to Baker Lake. We recommend The Grand by Lakeview at the Winnipeg International Airport for your overnight stay in Winnipeg.
WHAT TO EXPECT
Hunters will fly into Baker Lake, Nunavut and stay in the beautiful Nunamiut Lodge during the hunt. Days will be spent covering large areas on snow machines looking for tracks or the bears themselves! Hunters should be prepared to spend an impromptu night on the tundra if a track is encountered late in the day. This will enable an early start the following morning.
For those looking to enhance their trip, there will be opportunities to add a Barren Ground Musk Ox as well as an Arctic Wolf to their hunt. Additional trophy fees will apply.
We recommend Mr. Fish Taxidermy for handling of your trophies. They will take care of the permits, brokerage, etc. You can call them direct for pricing: Ask for Wes Wall at 1-204-755-3474

We can ship your trophies to Mr. Fish Taxidermy for fleshing, salting and shipping to a U.S. based Taxidermist. You will incur extra costs for this service as they apply for the USDA permits, etc. but this is the most convenient option and you are assured that your trophy is in good hands. We recommend this option but please call Wes Wall with Mr. Fish Taxidermy regarding delivery time and costs involved (Ph: 1-204-755-3474)
Mr. Fish Taxidermy can also do the taxidermy work and ship to you direct when complete.
You can make the necessary arrangements with a Taxidermist of your choice in Winnipeg and we will ship direct to them.
