Nunavut, Canada Polar Bear
This outfitter pioneered polar bear hunts in the high arctic starting in 1981 and has maintained a success rate of virtually 100% since they began!
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. 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.
- Spring hunts take place from March to the end of May. In the spring, there is an option for traditional hunts by dog sled teams.
- Fall hunts August to October are also available.
- Hunts includes 10 full days of hunting guided one-on-one. If needed, up to 5 extra days may be added at a daily fee (Extra Days on Hunts in Resolute Bay Only). Custom Itineraries can be provided for each client, mapping out round-trip travel plans from their home to the area they will be hunting.
- 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! Contact us if you are interested in hunting any of these species. Renowned hunters such as Jim Shockey, Tom Miranda, Bob Foulkrod, and Ralph and Vicky Cianciarulo have chosen this outfitter for their numerous arctic hunting expeditions.
