Polar Bear Hunting is the “Ultimate” Arctic adventure!
This polar bear hunting outfitter on this hunt offers the traditional spring hunts by dog sled teams from March to the end of May, and polar bear hunts from August to October are also available.
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.
Hunting is done from comfortable camps situated in prime areas that may be up to 160 kilometers from any one of our Inuit communities. The hunt is over when a polar bear is harvested, even if this happens in the first day or two.
This outfitter also offers superior hunts for Greenland and barren-ground muskox, Central Canada barren-ground and Arctic Islands caribou, barren-ground grizzly, and Atlantic walrus! Ask one of our consultants if you are interested in hunting any of these species.
Renowned hunters such as Tom Miranda, Bob Foulkrod, and Ralph and Vicky Cianciarulo have chosen this outfitter for their numerous arctic hunting expeditions.”
