Caribou hunting, Newfoundland - 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 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
caribou stags start to herd up. The August bulls are
sometimes in velvet which is mostly gone by the
beginning of September.
There are a limited
number of 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.
