Central Barren Ground Caribou Hunting in Canada with the Canadian Wilderness Outfitters

Fall 2023 Dates Filling Quickly  - Book While You Can


I'm telling you! You haven’t been on an adventure until you do this hunt. We have been told by our hunters that this is the ultimate hunt & a lifetime experience. Unlike any other trip! Experience the Adventure of a Lifetime!


The best caribou hunting in Canada is with the Canadian Wilderness Outfitters. The Canadian Wilderness Outfitters have been hunting caribou in Canada since 1996 taking 20 hunters per year, and every hunter has brought home 2 bulls. If you’re looking to hunt trophy caribou, this is the caribou hunt for you.


 The arctic caribou hunts in Canada start in mid-August and end in mid-September. Whether you plan on hunting the first week or the last week, you should see plenty of caribou during your hunt. When hunting Central Barren Ground Caribou, you are hunting a non-migrating Caribou which remain in the same region year-round. This particular caribou hunt is in the Arctic Circle in the new territory called Nunavut, an area that is seldom traveled and sees few outsiders.


Central Barren Ground Caribou 

 Barren Ground Caribou are a subspecies of caribou hunted in Canada and Greenland. Central Barren Ground Caribou are medium sized compared to other caribou with the bulls weighing in around 330lb. Barren Ground Caribou account for about fifty percent of all caribou found in Canada. Their diet is similar to other caribou mainly consisting of lichen, sedges, grasses, twigs, and mushrooms. Caribou are known to have poor eyesight and hearing, but they have the speed to outrun their main predator, the Arctic Wolf.

Each camp consists of a tent, cook stove, cooking utensils, and sleeping mats. You live amongst the Caribou, seals, polar bears, icebergs and whales for the week. We have maintained this “living on the land” hunt due to the environment and our hunters preference. Most of the memorable experiences could not have happened from a permanent camp location. 


We fly on the Calm Air airline from Winnipeg.  This is a commercial flight in a small plane which seats about 30 people but mostly carries cargo up. Airlines in Canada as in the United States have many restrictions but we are at their mercy. Baggage restrictions are 70 lbs, no more than 50 lbs per individual bag.

You will fly out of Winnipeg Airport about 6 am and after several stops along the way you will land in Repulse Bay at about 2 pm. At that point hunters are met by their guides and weather permitting set out on their hunt. There is a guide for every two hunters. You will leave the town by boat, glassing the shoreline for Caribou then getting on land to hunt & make camp. Caribou are constantly moving, just feeding & bedding down.



This far North, safety is our primary concern & the weather is the ruling force. The Hudson Bay is a huge, saltwater sea filled with icebergs & home to seals, whales, walrus & polar bears. This is a primitive land, about 500 miles North of the tree line, rock hard land covered in lichen moss. The Inuit people have survived by respecting this harsh land. Although temperatures this time of year are near 40 degrees, it will feel cold because we are always near the water with icebergs in it. Everyone should dress for the coldest weather. It is generally light from about 4am to midnight & Caribou are hunted through out the day. Again safety is stressed as the most important & deciding factor in the Arctic.
