Canada’s Northwest Territories offer world-class hunting in a wide range of settings, including guided hunts that increase your chances of coming home with a great trophy. Choose your landscape – there’s rugged mountains, deep green forest, high desert, and the Arctic coast and islands.
The big game still roams free in healthy numbers throughout the Northwest, and not just deer and elk – when you get into the provinces of northern Canada, you can find yourself hunting bison, caribou, mountain goats and even grizzly bears.
Hunts in Northwest Canada
Guided hunting trips are a popular option for hunters traveling to Canada’s northwest regions, especially trips to hunt black bear. Smaller than a Grizzly, black bears have poor eyesight but the extremely good sense of smell and hearing – making them quite a challenge to hunt.
Challenges in Canada for Big Game Hunter
There are also three types of caribou in Canada’s Northwest Territories, all offering a unique challenge to the big game hunter – the Woodland, Barren-ground, and Peary. Most of the area’s Barren-ground caribou – about 1.2 million – live in three large herds which migrate seasonally from the tundra to coniferous forests.
Adult bulls shed their antlers in November or December, while cows and young animals carry them much longer, often through the winter.

Guided hunts in Canada’s Northwest Territories offer a rare opportunity to visit areas still unspoiled by man and to bag some of the finest trophies in the world.
