The Porcupine Caribou herd provides a healthy, nutritious food source for people who live in the north, particularly the user communities in Alaska, Yukon and NWT. Ensuring the sustainable harvest of the Porcupine Caribou herd is an important aspect of the PCMB’s mandate.
As per PCMB recommendations following this year’s Annual Harvest Meeting, the herd is currently in the following zone:
Green Zone: Licensed hunters can take a maximum of two bull caribou. Aboriginal harvesters can take as many caribou (cows or bulls) as they need. All harvesters must report their harvest
