Hunting Information


Recommended Rifle

When it comes to rifle calibers, some popular options include the 270, 7mm, 300, and 338 in magnum loads. While you may need to make long range shots of up to 400 yards in some cases, most shots taken will be within the range of 1-200 yards or even closer. To ensure you have enough ammunition, we suggest bringing along 2 boxes of rifle shells, each containing 40 rounds.


Recommended Archery

Bow hunting is quickly gaining popularity as a way to harvest game. The tundra hunting area we offer features a diverse landscape with pockets of spruce, dwarf birch, rocky outcroppings, natural ridges, and ravines. This provides opportunities for animals to come to you or for you to stalk your prey. To ensure a successful hunt, we strongly suggest that you practice shooting arrows at a distance of 40-60 yards prior to your arrival. Many hunters choose to bring both a bow and a gun as a backup, as this is often a trip of a lifetime.


Recommended Muzzleloader

Harvesting a trophy Caribou with a black powder rifle is another great option that is becoming increasingly popular. To make your trip as smooth as possible, it's important to plan ahead and make arrangements with us at least 45 days before your trip. This is because of airline regulations related to the transport of black powder and caps. We have a shooting range at the lodge where you can make sure your weapon is shooting accurately. Keep in mind that handguns and other restricted weapons are not allowed for hunting or self-defense in Canada.

  • Firearms into Canada
    Hunters entering Canada with firearms must fill out the appropriate Firearms Declaration Forms and be in possession of these when crossing the Canadian Border. Once your reservation is considered “firm”, we will provide all the necessary forms and guide you through this process.
  • Hunter Safety Certificate Required
    Beginning on January 1, 2012 all hunters obtaining a hunting license in the province of Manitoba is now required to have in their possession, a valid Hunter Safety Certificate from their home State, Province or other jurisdiction. For more information please go to
  • Blaze Orange
    Hunter orange is a must when in the field. Jackets or vests must have a minimum of 400 sq inches of blaze above the waist, and a blaze hunting hat is also required.
  • Wounded Animals
    Depending on the circumstances, a wounded animal may count as a harvested animal. This will be left up to the discretion of the guide/outfitter.
  • Ethics
    As with any hunting activity, we ask that you show the upmost respect for the harvested animal, and in doing so, make all efforts possible to deliver a swift and humane kill. You will also respect the environment, other wildlife, and fellow hunters
