About Henik Lake Adventures
Thank you for taking a few moments to look at our website. We want you to know that all of us here at Henik Lake Adventures/The Lodge at Little Duck are committed to providing our hunters with the highest quality hunting experience in Canada’s North Country.
Henik Lake Adventures was founded in 2005, and offers hunts for those who desire to meet the challenges and live the excitement of hunting and fishing in one of the most beautiful, undiscovered and rugged places in the world.
Henik Lake Adventures is owned by Ryan and Dorothy St. John of Arviat, Nunavut. We have formed a partnership with another top quality outfitter, Dave Fisher and The Lodge at Little Duck. We did this in order to more efficiently provide the operational expertise that Dave has after 40+ years in the hunt/fish industry. He and his 5 star crew provides the operational, logistical and managerial experience along with the back office services that are necessary to support our hunting adventures in Canada’s Arctic regions.
The Lodge at Little Duck has been operating fishing and caribou hunting camps in Northern Manitoba for many years, while also providing vital transportation, expediting and logistical services to other lodge businesses, mining companies and outfitters in the north. Henik Lake Adventures is proud to be entering into our 7th year of partnership with Dave and The Lodge at Little Duck. “We are both strongly committed to providing the highest caliber of Arctic hunting experiences you have come to expect from Henik Lake Adventures”.
Our Camps and Outposts
Arctic hunts are often physically demanding and require careful preparation to ensure a safe and successful hunt. It’s extremely important that all our base camps are able to provide all the essential comforts of home.
Our Caribou hunting base camp’s at Baralzon and Edehon Lake is just that. Baralzon Lake is centrally located at the northern most limits of the tree-line, with great fishing for Lake Trout, Arctic Grayling, and Northern Pike. Baralzon Lake is also an important caribou travel corridor for the 300,000 + Qamanirjuaq Caribou Herd as they begin their fall migration. Edehon Lake is located roughly 40 miles NE of Baralzon and also has many major migratory routes through the lakes and rivers area. Over the years, both of these locations has provided magnificent trophies and caribou hunting adventures and successes to the many caribou hunters who have trusted their hunts to HLA.
Our Caribou camps provide tasty and filling home cooked meals, comfortable, warm and dry accommodations, experienced Inuit guides, and professional onsite managers/cooks all within an Arctic wilderness that is Wild, Untamed and Unspoiled. We are the first and only outfitter in the Western Arctic to invest a significant amount of resources to establish the infrastructure and equipment that will provide you with a safe and successful hunting adventure.
For Spring Muskox Hunts, our base camp is the community of Baker Lake. This is near the Thelon Game Sanctuary in an area traditionally used by the local Musk Ox herds. Being able to come home to a warm room, hot shower and a hot meal is a great benefit of hunting this area. We have enjoyed a 100% success rate since 2005 on these hunts.
We also offer spring Barren Ground Grizzly hunts coupled with BG Muskox, Wolf and Wolverine. In the fall we have added a BG Muskox, CBG Caribou and Atlantic Walrus to the ever growing custom hunts offered by HLA.
New for the 2022 season, we are proud to announce yet another custom hunt from HLA. We have teamed up with Jonathan Pameolik of Kivalliq Wildlife Adventures and are now offering a fall Polar Bear hunt that also includes BG Muskox and CBG Caribou. This is a all inclusive hunt that will see 2 guests hunting from various communities with only one mission in mind, your total hunting success. Both Ryan and Jonathan have been hunting together in Arctic for over 20 years. They were born in the Arctic, they live in the Arctic and both have extensive and intimate knowledge of both the land and the different animals and their behavior.
At HLA, we are committed to building the most reputable, experienced and successful outfitting company in the Western Arctic region of Canada’s North Country. We live, work, hunt and fish in the Arctic all year around. This is our home!!
We are “Nunavut’s Most Trusted Outfitter”
