We work with 2 outfitters in the Northwest Territories that offer premier mountain caribou hunts. Success generally runs at or near 100 percent on bulls with average gross scores of 375 to 380 Boone and Crockett, with some scoring into the 430’s and typically about 25 percent 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 round trip charter out of Norman Wells priced close to $1,400.

The first outfitter takes about 25 bulls per season, including quite a few record book bulls over 400 inches. 7 day backpack hunts are priced at $9,500 guided 2×1 plus licenses and tax. Caribou can be taken on a $6,000 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 and continues until mid October. Hunt CU119.
