Summer Caribou Migration 'Bunch'

Photo copyright Terry Elliott - all rights reserved


Copyright notice

During late July to mid-August each year, barrenground caribou cows & calves migrate south from their calving grounds to intercept the bulls near
the tree-line. During this period the cows & calves will occasionally swell into what is known as 'bunches' - often at water crossings - and then
dissipate again.
This cycle continues over a two to three week period. Once the bull caribou are met, the animals spread out and graze in small groups
in the late summer migratory lull, while they feed and build up fat stores to endure the upcoming winter and mating period.
