HUNT THE N.W.T. FOR
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 $1,000.
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 $4,000 trophy fee as add-ons for his
sheep and moose hunts. He normally starts hunting caribou in this 9,000
square mile area in late August.
