Quebec –-(Ammoland.com)- It was announced today that the Quebec Government has decided to close the Leaf River Herd to all sport hunting after the end of the 2017 hunting season.
Since the George River Herd closed to all hunting a few years ago following a decline from 750,000 animals to fewer than 10,000 caribous during the last census, this is likely the last opportunity to hunt for and harvest a Quebec-Labrador sub-species caribou bull in our lifetimes.
This closure comes despite a census that there are still close to 200,000 animals in the Leaf River Herd. While down from approximately 650,000 animals at its peak, the herd has plenty of animals to support a sport hunt and this last year we experienced a world-class caribou hunt which was filmed for The Adventure Series and will air on Outdoor Channel in January 2017.
If you are trying to complete a super slam you need this subspecies of caribou to complete it. Call our office immediately to discuss the available dates and options. And you can also see our hunting info on our website at Quebec Caribou Hunts – Leaf River Herd.
These hunts are limited to the number of permits issued to the outfitters by the government. We look forward to hearing from you.
