Health of the Caribou Herd

A line of caribou on the red autumn hills of the tundra.

Biologists for the Province of Newfoundland and Labrador have determined that the George River herd of Quebec/Labrador caribou has declined dramatically over the past two decades and the number of animals is now down to a critical level.  Hunting for non-residents has been suspended indefinitely and resident licenses now allow only one animal.  Of course, aboriginal peoples will still be allowed to harvest animals whenever and wherever the choose.

At this time, Three Rivers Lodge is not planning to host a caribou hunt in 2011.  This development with the George River herd has caused quite a stir within the Province and within hunting communities around the world.  We are awaiting news and hear rumors almost daily.  It might develop that we get a limited number of non-resident licenses for 2011.  When rumors become reality, we will post updates here and on our main web site.

Please feel free to contact us should you like an update on the changes in this new Provincial policy.

Thank you,  Robin Reeve
