And to think that some men have trophy cabinets with little silver cups in them.

The island portion of Newfoundland and Labrador is home to thousands of rare woodland caribou and the only non-resident huntable woodland caribou herds in the world. Non-resident hunters for woodland caribou have experienced more than a 90% success rate, with mature bulls weighing anywhere from 350 to 500 pounds. Turns out the world’s best woodland caribou hunting and the records to prove it is a winning combination.
