NORTHWEST TERRITORIES OFFERS
WORLD CLASS MOUNTAIN CARIBOU
We work with 2 outfitters in the Northwest Territories that offer premier
mountain caribou hunts. Success generally runs at or near 100% on bulls
with average gross scores of 375 to 380 Boone and Crockett, with some
scoring into the 430’s and typically about 25% score over the 390
record-book minimum. Both outfits will typically take 15 to 25 bulls per
year, either on straight caribou hunts or as extra animals on the sheep
and moose hunts. Both hunts require a roundtrip charter out of Norman
Wells priced close to $1,200.
This outfitter takes about 25 bulls per season, including quite a
few record book bulls over 400 inches. Typically the later hunts produce
the better bulls and they finish in mid-October. 7-day backpack hunts
are priced at $7,500 guided 2x1 plus licenses and tax. Caribou can be
taken on a $5,000 trophy fee as add-ons for his sheep and moose hunts.
