Central Barren-Ground Caribou Hunt

“Andrew Lake Lodge and Lynx Tundra Lodge act as booking agents for Adventure Northwest for all Northwest Territory and Nunavit Territory hunts. Let our experience help plan your arctic hunting adventure!”

Trek the boundless tundra, bask in the colours of autumn, breathe the scent of the crisp arctic air. It’s a thrilling adventure in the far north, where few have travelled. With your Inuit guides you’ll learn to stalk the majestic caribou and navigate the land like they have for hundreds of years.

You’ll be transported by boat before hiking inland to glass and hunt. The tundra has many high eskers and ridges that enable you to get within rifle and bow range.

Our camp on Pellatt Lake sits 200 miles north east of Yellowknife, just above the treeline, in the middle of three caribou ranges. There are five super comfortable cabins and the cooks serve up mouth-watering meals, which often include caribou and freshly caught fish.

This package offers you a rare seven days, with six full-days of hunting on the land. It’s the greatest opportunity to find your prized animal and take in the north.

The terrain is generally dry and rocky. No hip waders are necessary, but sturdy waterproof hunting boots are a must. Temperatures can range from 32°F to 75°F in late August and down to 28°F to 40°F by late September. We encourage all hunters to purchase tags for wolf, wolverine and ptarmigan. The lakes also provide outstanding opportunities for lake trout, northern pike, and grayling.
