Barren Ground Caribou
Rangifer tarandus groenlandicus.
Partake in the hunt for one of Northern Canada’s most majestic big game animals - in the best place in North America to hunt them!
Our Caribou hunts are based out of world famous Treeline Lodge. Enjoy access to 7,000 square miles of pristine wilderness. Our area runs along the Manitoba/Nunavut border for 110 miles! No other outfitter in Northern Manitoba can easily access an area this large! Stay in a world-class modern lodge. Travel by boat or fly into one of our several remote outpost cabins for a 2 day stay!
Hunt two herds! – The Qamanirjuaq is a heard of Barren Ground Caribou estimated at 496,000 animals. The Beverly Herd is also available to our hunters. This herd is estimated at 276,000. These herds of caribou are felt by many hunters to have superior genetics. This perception is due largely to the small amount of hunting pressure on the herds - preserving Trophy genetics of the large bulls for the lucky few!
Both herds migrate south through Nueltin from their calving grounds to the north. Their migratory route is fairly predictable. When they reach Nueltin Narrows the herds split - some head east towards our Blevins, John Osborne and South-East Nueltin. Some head down the west side towards our Tice Lake and Putahow Lake Cabins. Many seasons’ large portions of the main herd actually pass through the grounds at Treeline Lodge! Many of our hunters will take their animal within walking distance!
