If it is from Quebec it is a Quebec/Labrador caribou. Central barren ground are fround in the Northwest Territories east of the Mackenzie Mtns. in the barrens and in Nunavut and the northern most part of Manitoba.

Barren ground caribou are found in the northern Yukon and Alaska. Mountain caribou in BC, Alberta, southern Yukon, the Mackenzie Mtns of the Northwest Territories. Newfoundland caribou are Woodland.

This is of course for record book (B&C) listings. SCI also has the Arctic Islands caribou (Perry's). Biologists will also tell you there are woodland in northern Saskatchewan and Manitoba ........ah, forget it, why muddy the water. Big smile

Don't want to sound pessimistic, but caribou with velvet don`t age well ,bug get into it.
Unless it was imediately injected with a special formula (rarely done in the tundra) blood remaind between the velvet and hantler and it attrack bug...just don`t tell your wife Shame on You! lol
Taxidernist recommanded we pell the velvet.

Nice rack anyway! Thumbs up

Ungava, welcome to the forem. Look like a big Bou hunter. Hope that you did not peel all those antlers yourself or your thumbs would be rubbed right off Yes
If you had read my other post you would see that I did inject the antler right after shooting the animal. Then my taxidermist (who was very experienced with mounting in velvet) put them through a long special process to preserve them. I also fog them with a "Bug Bomb" at least once a year (if not twice). I must admit that if done incorectly velvet will not last at all. I expect to get years of enjoyment out of my mount due to diligence. Thumbs up

Awsome then ADKBEAR! Thumbs up
Yeah caribou in velvet are nice, but like you said done correctly.

We at camp hate them and can wait they lose it Brick Wall,)
Like you said ....it's a lots of work, first we pell them and then thrown them in the lake for a day or 2 , and let them dry after,then it,s the process of wrapping them with foam and plastic cover if blood leak from them you can get them in the plane Shame on You!
When the people get home, they have to give it to there taxidermist or if they do it themself put them on top of their garage to dry.
