Caribou Hunt

There are well managed herds of both woodland and barren  ground caribou that live in many regions of Newfoundland. It is a rare privilege to encounter these majestic animals in their natural environment. About 90,000 woodland caribou roam wilderness areas of the island and through outfitter packages, are available for hunt on a limited quota basis. Most of these utilize fly-in services to reach the remote campsites where the great herds migrate each fall. Hunters may take one male animal per license. NEWFOUNDLAND GRAND SLAM This is a packaged hunt that consist of three Species; the Eastern Moose, Woodland Caribou, and Black Bear. Every year we kill many moose in excess of 40 inch spread and some over 50 inches. We have excellent caribou hunting areas and have taken many Boone and Crockett rated animals. You will have many good animals to choose from. Approximately 75 percent of our hunters kill Black Bear. Most hunters see bear on their visit, but as we don't bait for animals your hunt for bear may be more challenging.  Parsons Pond Outfitters P.O.

Caribou range in weight from 55 kg to 318 kg

(121lbs. to 700 lbs.).  The average lifespan of

a caribou is 4.5 years.

The caribou belongs to the deer family and is the only member where both male and female counterparts carry antlers. The antlers of the female are smaller than those of the male, but they are carried for a longer period of time. Caribou start growing their antlers each spring and are normally done the process by August. Male caribou shed their antlers in November or December, after mating, while females will often carry them until June, after they have given birth. Antlers are a sign of dominance, and it is usually only the pregnant caribou that keep the antlers that late. It allows them to defend their feed and displace large caribou from favoured sites while nourishing their babies. There are many subspecies of caribou. They can be found dwelling in forests, on mountains, in the tundra, and even migrating each year between the forests and tundra of the Far North. Approximately half of Canadian caribou are barren-ground caribou. This means they spend almost all of the year, sometimes even the full year, on the tundra from Alaska to Baffin Island.
Hunting in Newfoundland and Labrador at its best.
