There are six subspecies of caribou classified in the record books.
Arctic Island Caribou
The arctic islands caribou is hunted in the Arctic Islands of the Northwest Territories and Nunavut, plus the Boothia Peninsula.

Specifically, the arctic islands include Banks, Victoria, Prince of Wales and Somerset islands, plus all the islands lying north of the Parry Channel, which connects the Beaufort Sea with Baffin Bay.

Barren Ground Caribou
Barren ground caribou occupy the far northern boreal forests and arctic tundra in Alaska, Yukon and the Northwest Territories.

We represent a number of proven Barren Ground caribou hunting outfitters and guides.

Central Canadian Barren Ground Caribou
Central Canadian Barren Ground Caribou hunting is done south and east in the Northwest Territories (NWT) and Nunavut.

Mountain Caribou
Named mountain caribou herds include the Selkirk, Spatsizi, and Wells Gray. They are found in the Yukon Territory, Northwest Territories (NWT), British Columbia and Alberta. In the United States, the endangered Selkirk Herd extends marginally into northeastern Washington and northern Idaho.

Quebec-Labrador Caribou
The Quebec-Labrador caribou is found in Quebec and Labrador. The huge Ungava (George River) Herd is the principal one. Other named Quebec-Labrador caribou herds include the Waco and Mealy Mountain.

Woodland Caribou
Historically the woodland caribou was found as far south as central Idaho, through the Great Lakes area and northern New England. Wild populations currently exist in Alaska, Canada, northeastern Washington, and extreme northern Idaho in the Selkirk mountains.

The woodland caribou is one of three regional caribou categories established for record-keeping by dividing the subspecies caribou into geographic groups based on antler size and shape.
