The Mobile Core Bathurst Caribou Management Zone (Mobile Zone) is now in effect for the 2020/21 winter season.

This no-harvest zone was established by the GNWT and co-management partners to protect the declining Bathurst caribou herd. It is illegal to harvest caribou within the Mobile Zone.

The Department of Environment and Natural Resources actively monitors caribou and hunters in the area. Anyone caught harvesting in the Mobile Zone may be charged under the Wildlife Act.

The location of the Mobile Zone is updated every Tuesday throughout the winter.

You can get a map of the current boundaries from:
