There are five main species of caribou in North America – the barren ground, central Canadian barren ground, woodland, mountain, and Quebec-labrador. Much has changed in the caribou hunting world in the last decade. The Quebec-labrador caribou herds once numbered over 2 million animals, and many hunters flocked there yearly for a two-caribou bag limit and affordable hunts. Unfortunately, that hunt closed permanently in 2017 due to low caribou numbers, caused by many reasons unrelated to sport hunting. Consequently, hunts for the other types of caribou have jumped in popularity. Some herds of caribou throughout North America are still in decline. However, the good news is there are other areas where hunting is still incredible with stable or increasing numbers of animals. With that said, plan to book well in advance for some of the top-notch caribou hunts.
Barren ground caribou are found extensively throughout Alaska and parts of the Yukon and Northwest Territories in Canada. They have the largest antler size of all the North American caribou types, and many unguided and guided hunts are available for them.

Central Canadian Barren Ground Caribou Hunts and Outfitters
Central Canadian barren ground caribou live throughout central Canada and Greenland. Numbers are declining in some areas of northern Canada but are very stable in Greenland. They are mid-sized caribou that live almost exclusively on the tundra. To learn more about our trophy-class central Canadian barren ground caribou hunts, click here.
If you want to hunt the woodland caribou, you will be hunting Newfoundland. They are medium-sized caribou, and their antlers are generally the smallest of the caribou types. Tag allocations are limited, but hunts are highly successful for Boone and Crockett trophy-class bulls. To learn more about our trophy-class woodland caribou hunts, click here.
Mountain caribou live in British Columbia, Yukon Territories, Northwest Territories, and Alberta. They are generally found in mountainous habitats and stay in smaller herds. They have the largest body size of the caribou types, with bulls sometimes exceeding 600 pounds. Their antlers tend to carry hefty mass and are a sight to behold.
