Mountain Caribou - British Columbia
In the far north, among the rolling plateaus, live the largest of the Caribou species, the Mountain Caribou. Bulls can weigh up to 650 pounds and have heavy, dark colored antlers and beautiful white manes. All caribou hunts will be 10 days in duration and will be spot and stalk in the northern part of our Liard River Concession. These animals are found in good numbers, and with a steady population of resident animals, success rates are high. They can be hunted on their own or make an affordable add on to your Moose or Grizzly hunt.
Caribou in our area live in gentler terrain then in many other regions and this hunt can be enjoyed by almost anybody. These hunts are all ATV supported and you will be staying in a remote cabin camp. Depending on weather or herd location there is a chance you will need to spike out occasionally, but this is rare.
10 days 1 on 1 $12,000
10 days 2 on 1 $10,500 per person
*Add on Grizzly Bear for $1,050 U.S. license plus $6,000 U.S. trophy fee.

Canadian Barren Ground Caribou Hunts
Trek the boundless tundra, bask in the colors of autumn, and breathe the scent of the crisp arctic air. It’s a thrilling adventure in the far north, where few have travelled. With your Inuit guides you’ll learn to stalk the majestic caribou and navigate the land like they have for hundreds of years.
You’ll be transported by boat before hiking inland to glass and hunt. The tundra has many high eskers and ridges that enable you to get within rifle and bow range.
Our camp on Contwoyto Lake sits 250 miles north east of Yellowknife, just above the treeline, in the middle of three caribou ranges. There are two 12x24 client tents, a kitchen tent, plus a guides tent and caping/skinning tent. The cooks serve up mouth-watering meals, which often include caribou and freshly caught fish.
This package offers you six days, with five full-days of hunting on the land.
The terrain is generally dry and rocky. No hip waders are necessary, but sturdy waterproof hunting boots are a must. Temperatures can range from 32°F to 75°F in late August and down to 28°F to 40°F by late September. We encourage all hunters to purchase tags for wolf, wolverine and ptarmigan. The lakes also provide outstanding opportunities for lake trout and grayling.
While there will not be any caribou tags available to outfitters in the NWT, Adventure Northwest maintains tags in Nunavut.
