Did you know that caribou and reindeer are the same animal.  In our area we have many of these majestic animals.  Our outposts on Flindt Lake, Kawaweogama Lake, Seseganaga Lake, Hilltop Lake and Metionga Lake are within some of the most southern caribou habitat in North America.  Our guests will often catch a glimpse of a caribou.  Sometimes they are fortunate to get a good picture. 



These photos were taken on Seseganaga Lake about a week ago.   Both the female and male grow antlers but the male’s antlers are often considerably larger.
