The Woodland Caribou is the rarest and most majestic of the Caribou species. With large bodies, big white manes and huge, cinnamon colored antlers with lots of mass and points, they make outstanding trophies.
This hunting area is only accessible by helicopter. In the past Caribou populations were in decline in all herds in Newfoundland, but the Middle Ridge Herd is now showing a reversal of that trend and is growing. Hunt is conducted by spot and stalk and can be done by bow, rifle or muzzle-loader and is done during the rut which occurs during early October to mid-November.
Your guides are knowledgeable and very experienced in the movements and habits of Caribou. In the past 21 years there has been an 80% success rate of which 25% have been record book specimens.
Woodland Caribou can be combined with Moose and both species can be hunted at the same camp. Typically Moose prefer to be close to stands of woods, at the bottom of hills, along the brooks, and on wooded hillsides. Caribou are found on the open country and on barren ridge tops and around the lakes.
This is for a 5-day hunt in Sept-Oct in the Newfoundland region. Arrival point is Gander.
