By Ted Kegi~g pioneers have left us rqF- not a reliable count, of l~illions of buffalo and ante- that grazed our western a century ago It is prob- that these bygone herds are in numbers by the wild that roam the northern of this conti~lent today. eminent naturalist, Er- Thompson Seton, made a into the Barren Grounds Canada in 1907 and a careful survey of the including an estimate of His estimate was written experience of a W, ~' Newland number of northern explorers and Canadian government officials, on the average number of caribou killed annually by Indta~s and Eskimos, and on other ]~ertinent factors Seton arrived at the con- clusion that the caribou of north- 'ern Canada east of the Mackenzie River numbered over 30 million, and that they might be double j t hat ! Those observations did not take into consideration the Alaska- Yukon herds, nor those of south- ern Canada, nor the mountain caribou of British Columbia and Alberta, nor the many small bands that do not join the large migra- tions. Indeed the aggregate of the caribou o~a the North American continent may number twice 30 million. Col. Townsend Whelan, gun authority and veteran outdoors- man, points out that this vast caribou population will soon pre~, sent a serious problem in terms. Established 1885 3'amel I.

They no longer are pro- tected by vast distances in the far north. Within a year or two it will be easy to reach them by airplane where before this it was a matter of several months' wild- erness journey at least. We do not wurst the caribou.to go the way of our buffalo. It is generally supposed that the caribou migrate south to the shelter of the woods in the win- ter, and north to the windswept Barren Grounds in summer for ~elief from mosquitoes, but this is by ~o means certain. Lichens are the preferred food of the northern caribou, and lichens grow very slowly, and the caribou may eat them off entirely in a certaill~ district, and next' year migrate elsewhere. Caribou are great wanderers and one to two hundred miles is nothing to them. They are par- ticularly gregarious, solitary cari- bou being the exception They are the only members of the deer family, the does of which corn- mostly bear antlers -- usually spikes 12 to 18 inches long with few or no points. Caribou are very keen of scent, but their eyesight is not remarkable, and they often pay little attention to noise. Caribou are erratic and rest- less to such an extent that they often are declared to be stupid. Particularly they are subject to short panics or rushes. In the North they are annoyed by the botfly or wa~ble fly which de- posits the eggs on their hair. The larvae hatch, bore through the skin, finally working out and pro- ducing perforations of such ex- tenf that the hides of animals killed in July and August are worthless. These flies cause the caribou much uneasiness. When ~they buzz around it, the animal will rush off for a quarter mile or more to escape the slow-flying insects. This actic~n, in the course of many centuries, may have led to the habit of the characteristic sudden rushes or panics.
