Woodland Caribou Hunting In Newfoundland, Canada
game hunting for Woodland Caribou is allowable only in Newfoundland.
At Pine Ridge Lodge, we hunt the Middle Ridge herd - the largest
woodland caribou herd and the one with the highest proportion of trophy
class animals. Large males, weighing upwards of 500 lbs. and sporting
an impressive mahogany colored antlered crown is beautiful to see and a
challenge to hunt. The mating period for caribou usually occurs during
the period early October to mid November.
Game Hunters at Pine Ridge Lodge's various locations enjoy the benefits
of being able to hunt from lodges and/or outpost camps throughout the
whole home range of the Middle Ridge herd, and, can be relocated anywhere
within this home range if needed to ensure a successful hunt. This, as well as being able to hunt with guides who are
experienced and knowledgeable about caribou movements, gathering areas
and habitat are features that combine to place Pine Ridge Lodge
hunters in areas with the highest concentration of Trophy Class
the past four years, Pine Ridge Lodge hunters have recorded the # 2 Pope
and Young; the # 5 and #11 Boone and Crockett, and the # 4 and 5 SCI
woodland caribou. The # 5 Boone and Crockett was the largest woodland
caribou recorded within the past 30 years. 25% of the woodland caribou
taken at Pine Ridge Lodge are record book specimens.
