The Hudson Bay Lowlands have abundant feed to attract and hold the migrating geese. Low bush blueberries, lingonberries, gooseberries, wild raspberries and cloudberries are favorites of migrating waterfowl. Geese are also attracted to the wild celery, which is plentiful in the marshy areas along the Hudson Bay coast
Kaska’s hunters have the option to hunt the Kaskattama River delta via Argo all-terrain vehicle or to board our Bell Long Ranger helicopter and travel farther afield to access areas where the flocks of migrating snow geese are staging and feeding before beginning their long flight south.
Every Hunt is an Adventure at Kaska!
Black bears, timber wolves and even the occasional polar bear frequent the Kaskattama River and the trails near the lodge and have been known to wander into camp, attracted by the tantalizing smells emanating from the Kaska kitchen.
Moose are often spotted in the bush across the river from the lodge.
Polar bears can be seen dug into the beach ridges along the coast of Hudson Bay, biding their time until the ice is back on Hudson Bay and they can again hunt seals. Occasionally, our hunters have had to demure to a white bear that has staked claim to one of our driftwood hunting blinds along the coast.
