The wide open barren lands of Newfoundland's south coast is a vast area covering hundreds of square miles from the Atlantic Ocean in the south all the way up to the Gaff Topsails. The land is rolling, nearly treeless tundra (except for the valleys) covered with moss and lichen. This is the last great wilderness frontier of Newfoundland and this is home to the woodland caribou.
More than five thousand strong the LaPoile woodland caribou herd is the second largest herd of Caribou on the island of Newfoundland. The herd wanders a vast area from near Stephenville in the north to the Burgeo and Port au Basque wintering grounds in the south.The caribou hunting season opens mid-August when the small scattered groups of mature bulls start to herd up. The August woodland bulls are sometimes in velvet which is mostly gone by the beginning of September.
There are a limited number of caribou outfitters offering fully guided hunts and each have their own designated area. Caribou management is a high priority here as less than ten percent of the herd is allocated for sport hunting.
Appalachian Outfitters operate three caribou outfitting logdes in Newfoundland and each does an excellent job in harvesting trophy caribou bulls. All hunting lodges come highly reccommended from many hunters who have experienced the Appalachian adventure, and references can be provided upon request. The world record for safari international was taken here in 1998.
All three camps are owned by Appalachian Outfitters. Dedicated professional outdoorsmen known for our special brand of northern hospitality.
