Trophy Central Barren Ground Caribou Hunting



To adjust for the changing migratory patterns that we’ve witnessed the last couple of seasons, and to improve the overall experience on our Caribou adventures, we’ve made some modifications to the structure of our caribou hunts.

For our 2017 season we will be using a combination of established and mobile camps to give hunters every opportunity to harvest their caribou. We will be scouting the region prior to and throughout the season in order to determine which camp will provide the most access to the herd.

Our permanent camps are comfortable with diesel or propane heat, running water, showers, home cooked meals, satellite phones and knowledgeable Inuit guides that know the animals and the land.

Read all the details here, on our partner website.

An electronic copy of the Nunavut Hunting Guide is available here.

Big Game Licenses
  • Caribou Hunters are allowed up to two bull tags.
  • Wolf hunters may hunt wolf in Manitoba if they have an unused tag. If a wolf is taken, the tag does NOT have to be notched, just supply the appropriate information on the Outfitter Declaration form.
  • Wolf or wolverine hunters may hunt them in Nunavut provided they purchase the applicable tags.

GEAR CHECKLIST

Guests will be allowed a TOTAL luggage allowance of 50 pounds which may include:
  • Up to 2 duffel bags (24” x 12” x 12” each)
  • 1 day pack
  • 1 gun or bow case, only soft cases will be allowed on the charter flight into camp
Gun/Bow Cases

Commercial airlines require hard sided cases. We will have a secure location for storing these cases during your trip. Please refrain from bringing hard suitcases. Space is at a premium on charter flights into camp and soft duffels take up less space and are easier to compress. You must wear your full hunting gear for the charter flights to and from camp. We do have secure storage facilities to store any excess luggage, clothing and your hard bow or gun cases.

Weapons

Note: Archery and firearm targets will be set up at camp.

Rifle

Most shots will be under 200 yards, but shots of 300-400 yards may occur. We suggest flat shooting cartridges of .270 and up, with .300 calibres preferred. Bullets should be well constructed and no less than 130 grains. We recommend 2 boxes (40 rounds) of shells.

Muzzle Loader

We welcome black powder hunters. For those flying, it may be difficult to get black powder or primers on commercial airlines. Please give us 60 days in order to pre-purchase these items for you. We recommend a minimum .50 calibre muzzle loader for caribou hunting.

Archery

If you are thinking of bringing a bow, please do. A close-range encounter is definitely possible. We recommend you practice and feel comfortable at up to 50 yards. We also suggest bringing 8 arrows with broadheads for your trip.
