Yukon Mountain Caribou Hunting
Mountain caribou hunts in the mountains of the Yukon
MacMillan River Adventures recently
obtained an increase in our allocated quota of Mountain Caribou
due to the tremendous health, stability, and population structure
of the Tay River mountain caribou herd in our hunting area.
Some occasional opportunities to harvest the mountain caribou
do occur on the river and lake hunts but the best success
comes on the high country horseback hunt. The individual and
bachelor herds of Yukon mountain caribou spend the late summer
and early fall near the mountain tops and in the high alpine
meadows along timberline. The higher elevations offer cooler
temperatures and wind exposure that aid relief from the insects
that bother the mountain caribou bulls at this time of the
season. The open country also provides some longer sight lines
to offer the mountain caribou some safety from hunting wolves.
This Yukon mountain caribou hunt is similar to the high country
moose hunt in that daily horseback rides are taken to higher
elevations and time is spent glassing for mature bulls to
stalk. Because of the nature and timing of the mountain caribou
hunt a successful combo hunt for moose, grizzly, or wolf trophy
can be very realistic expectation.
If you are looking for one of the most sought after trophies
in the world, then the Yukon Territory and MacMillan River
Adventures has a trophy mountain caribou waiting for you.
