Canada’s Arctic is home to roughly 16,000 polar bears, two thirds of the world’s population.

Government biologists keep a close eye on Polar Bear populations in the Canadian Arctic, and a very limited amount of licenses are issued each year and healthy polar bear numbers have been successfully maintained through “sex-selective” harvesting in which only 33% of bears taken may be female.

Since 1975, polar bear populations have actually increased slightly.

Renowned hunters such as Tom Miranda, Bob Foulkrod, and Ralph and Vicky Cianciarulo have chosen this outfitter for their numerous arctic hunting expeditions.” -Trevor Brittingham
