Alaska Caribou

Caribou: This is the common name for a North American deer of the sme species, Rangifer tarandus, family Cervidae, order Artiodactyla, as the reindeer of Eurasia. Alaska Caribou range in height from 40 to 60 inches at eh shoulder and weigh from 200 pounds to more than 600 pounds. The large size of this big game animal is why it is popular with Alaska hunting guides and outfitters whom offer trips and guided hunts for it. Both the male and female have antlers, but the females are smaller and simpler. The male’s antlers are much more impressive and are a prize trophy for hunters on a trip or guided hunt. Two principal groups exist; the Barren Ground, or Arctic caribou, which is found in Alaska as other parts of the world and the woodland caribou.

The Barren Ground caribou are native to the tundra regions of northern Canada, Greenland, and Alaska. You can find many an outfitter or guide in these areas. Historically, the Inuit {Eskimo} living in arctic regions has depended on these big game animals for survival, using every part of the body for food, implements, or clothing. The caribou usually live in small herds of cows and calves and a few bulls. Most of the older bulls stay in separate small bands except during rut and travel on the fringes of migrating herds. Many Alaska hunting guides and outfitters will prey on these older bulls as they tend to be slower and grouped together away from females. This tactic is a good way to not shoot a female that is nursing. A good Alaska outfitter or guide will keep this in mind when on a trip or hunt to make sure of future hunters will have the same opportunity to experience this big game animal as well.

Breeding takes place in September and October, and the calves are born in May and June. These Alaska caribou have a gray or light brown summer coat and a white winter coat. In winter they gather in large herds and migrate south to warmer Canadian forests, sometimes traveling over 800 miles, then return north in springtime. The staple diet of caribou is lichens, but they also eat grasses, shrubs, tree shoots, and mushrooms. Plans for oil and gas-pipeline construction in Alaska and Canada were altered, through environmentalist efforts, so as not to interfere with caribou migration.

Of less economic significance are the woodland caribou, which are darker and stockier and have heavier antlers than Barren Ground caribou found in Alaska and Canada. At one time they were common from Maine to Montana, but they have since been literally exterminated by hunters, outfitters and guides and early settlers in most parts of the United States.
