Where to hunt Barren Ground Caribou
Barren ground caribou are also known as the tundra caribou. They inhabit the northmost ranges of caribou, and undertake large-scale seasonal migrations from northern calving grounds and pastures to wintering range in the boreal forests and back. Hunting opportunities are mostly concentrated in Greenland and Alaska, with some options in Canada as well.
The most affordable barren ground caribou offers are to be found in Greenland, where they get below $5,000. Barren ground caribou hunts in the USA and Canada start at about $7,500 and most are in the 10,000 USD range. As a large part of the price comes from the cost of travel to remote areas, it’s advisable to combine a hunt after caribou with hunting other species such as musk ox or moose. Combination hunts typically are a better value.

It’s amazing how creatures can adapt to living in the harshest of environments. You’d never thought that something as unappetizing and unnourishing as lichen can support tens of thousands of robust and hard-going deer. Yet, here they are, all over the Northern Hemisphere: known as reindeer in Eurasia and as caribou in North America, the Arctic deer is the source of life for many indigenous peoples, and an irresistible attraction for hunters from the developed countries.4 Okt 2018 Karibu
When to hunt Barren Ground Caribou?
The season in Alaska runs from August to November, but the prime time for hunting is September and October. The same applies to Greenland. In North America success in hunting barren ground caribou often depends on whether the animals migrate to a given area or not. The populations in Greenland hardly ever migrate at all, so hunting is somewhat more predictable there.

Barren ground caribou hunting in Alaska is typically a combination of spot-and-stalk and ambushing a moving herd, especially during migration. In Greenland many outfitters prefer to cruise along the shoreline in motorboat, scouting for a huntable bull; once such is located, the guide and hunter land ashore and begin the stalk. This method is allowed and practiced in some areas of Alaska as well.
Why hunt Barren Ground Caribou? Alle Jagden (22)
One person's staple food (clothes, home, tools, and 1001 other use), another person's adventure magnet: the caribou. Like all caribou, barren ground caribou carry large and impressive antlers, that are uniquely shaped and combine palms with points, with a prominent eye guard. But for the true hunter they are only a symbol of the journey into the last frontier, the unique experience of joining the Circle of Life and Death in the rugged and beautiful Arctic, with the sight of thousands of migrating caribou rivalling the famous springbok migrations in Africa.
Muskox Winter Hunt "The Arctic Five" '21 Grönland
This hunt is for adventure hunters who want to experince the arctic winter. The hunting bring us into the remote arctic winter wilderness. It is hunting in extreme conditions with temperatures from around 0 to - 40 C. It is an adventure in the world's “last frontier”. We will start hunting for Musk Ox, and we will hunt by ATV/snowmobile and on foot on a spot and stalk hunt. Depending on conditions, we use ATVs or snowmobile to bring us into the area, and after spotting the animal, we will start a stalk on foot. You will often be close to big arctic Musk Ox during the hunt. The last part of the hunt is exciting in ways that sometimes it tests the hunter’s nerve system! We are hunting under extreme arctic winter conditions; therefore your physical health has to be good. We will be able to take the vehicle to the dead animal to pick up meat and trophy. After approaching a lonely bull or a family group, there will normally be an opportunity to find support for the rifle on rocks or small hills when you are shooting. After a succesful Muskox hunting, we start hunting Caribou, polar fox, polar hare and ptarmigan. If you succeed with all of the five species you have shot what we call ''The Arctic Five''! To be mentioned: the Polar Fox can’t be exported due to rabies risk and the Caribou is not a big trophy at this time of year – but still ''The Arctic Five'' is ''The Arctic Five''!
