Choosing the type of Polar Bear Hunt!

Polar bear hunts are generally not too physical. The Canadian arctic is extremely remote – getting to the hunt location can take a few days. Do you want a fair-weather hunt or a winter hunt? Some hunters may want the true winter experience, others may opt for more mild weather. And then there are transportation methods to consider – some hunts use a sled called a komatik that is pulled behind a snowmobile to get the hunter to camp. Other hunts utilize walking, ATV’s, and boats to access Polar bears. Legacy Outdoors can tailor a hunt to suit almost anyone. So, whatever your abilities are, after a discussion, we can find the perfect hunt for you. There are many multiple species combinations that can be included on your hunt including walrus, seal, caribou and musk ox.

Fall hunts are conducted in August-November when weather is much milder. Boats, ATV’s, and walking on foot methods will be used. Combination hunts for central Canadian barren-ground caribou or arctic island caribou are possible. Winter hunts take place in March-April. Spring season runs from March to late May.
