Canadian Central Barren Ground Caribou bow hunt in Greenland
Spot & stalk your trophy caribou in the coastal mountains of southwest Greenland, north of the capital of Nuuk. Muskox are the most common big game animals in Greenland, and we strongly advise you to consider booking the combination, but you’ll find a healthy population of caribou, and you shouldn’t have any trouble finding good bulls. Nearly all the combo hunters return with both animals. This is a fair chase guided caribou spot and stalk hunt in the late summer / early fall when temperatures range from 32 to 50f with the weapon (rifle / bow / muzzleoader / handgun) of your choice. This is a fully guided, all-inclusive hunt with a well-established outfitter - one that I’ve worked with for nearly 20 years. Plan to do some fishing after you tag-out as many of the rivers in the hunting area offer Arctic char fishing. There’s also ptarmigan, waterfowl, and Arctic fox to hunt at no extra charge. This area has a good population of caribou and good quality (bulls over 300 inches) but we recommend all bowhunters consider upgrading to one of their more remote camps via helicopter where you’ll find more animals which have experienced less pressure. P&Y recognizes the resident caribou of Greenland as the Canadien Central Barren Ground Caribou.
Cost: $7,500 for a 6 day hunt
This area could be described as low coastal mountains. It’s closer to hills than mountains, and not too bad for hiking but a good exercise routine would be helpful prior to this trip. The animals can generally be found by glassing from the boat or ATV.
It’s a good bowhunting area although it’s tree-less, there’s enough broken (boulders / ridges) ground to offer good concealment for stalk.

Typical Travel / Hunt Schedule
Mountain Caribou in Northwest Territories
Travel to the wilds of the McKenzie Mountains in the Northwest Territories to hunt mountain caribou with a great guided caribou outfitter. You may hunt with gun or bow, but this is our go-to destination for bowhunters as they have a long successful history with bowhunters. This is a 1st class operation from top to bottom, and should be considered one of the best in the Territories. There's a great caribou population in the area and with such immense tracks of wilderness, most bulls survive to maturity and some will sport head gear that will score over 350". They shoot bulls every year that will break the magic 400 inch mark. Hunters stay in remote outpost camps with running water and showers - good meals, good guides and 1st rate equipment.
Expect to stalk bulls in the rugged ridges and valleys above tree line, not all that different than sheep hunting.
Where: Northwest Territories, Southwest of Norman Wells
Cost: $10,800 per person, Deposit: $5,250
