Total allowable harvest limit for Bluenose-East caribou herd

There is now a Total Allowable Harvest (TAH) limit for harvesting caribou from the Bluenose-East caribou herd. A maximum of 340 caribou may be harvested from this herd within Nunavut.

The Kugluktuk hunters and trappers organization (HTO) can provide details of any HTO-specific rules relating to the harvest of caribou from the Bluenose-East herd. The HTO office can be reached at 867-982-4908.

Hunters should get a tag from the Kugluktuk wildlife office before they hunt to prove that they have an allocation from the TAH. For more information, please contact the Kugluktuk wildlife office at 867-982-7450 or 867-982-7451.
