The Barren Ground Grizzly Bear population on the vast tundra north of the tree line in Nunavut Territory continues to expand its range. All hunts occur in prime coastal and inland locations on the continental mainland. Our outfitter has been grizzly hunting in Nunavut since the early 1990’s with an unparalleled harvest success. In fact, our clients have taken nine of the top ten bears listed in the SCI record book on this Barren Ground Grizzly hunt.
The Barren Ground Grizzly Bear is well known for its ferocity and fears no animal, man included.
The Barren Ground Grizzly Bear compares well to the Arctic grizzlies of Alaska, and similar in size to the Mountain Grizzly found in British Columbia. Large specimens of Barren Ground bears reach up to 8.5 feet with most hunters harvesting bears in the 7 to 7.5 ft range. They are the most beautiful of all bears. A single hide can exhibit four to five colors! Black forelegs, blonde on the back and cinnamon on the flanks.
In 2014 the outfitter saw the need for a northern-based guides training program founded on advancing Inuit culture and traditions. The program’s instructors are local Inuit Senior guides and elders. Southern values do not drive the course outline. This keeps with the generational passing down of Inuit Knowledge and the skills.
The Inuit are skilled hunters, and the goal of the guides training program looks to complement these traditional abilities. It helps promote a lifestyle and work opportunities for additional local guides.
Respecting Community Values and Traditions
The outfitter is involved in year-round community events and activities throughout Nunavut. Ensuring that the Unique Inuit Culture not only continues to exist but to thrive in the modern world.
Traditional Inuit Cultural activities include: Throat Singing, Drum Dancing, Elder Sewing classes, Inuit Carving programs and annual Bowhead Whale Hunts to contemporary projects. Funding of books and other educational supplies for Daycare Centres, various Community Feasts, an all Inuit men’s Hockey Team, Youth Skating Programs, annual Fishing Derbies, and Christmas Food Banks just to name a few.
