(g) National Geographic Society Painting by Walter A. Weber AS CARIBOU RACE FOR COVER, AN INDIAN HUNTER'S ARROW FINDS THE HEART OF ASPLENDID BUCK Caribou are the reindeer of North America. There are two main groups: the Woodland Caribou (shown here), and the smaller gray Barren-Ground type, with longer, but more slender, antlers. Original range included most of Canada and Alaska. The Woodland species isfast diminishing, while the Barren-Ground is still relatively abundant in some regions. Not so swift in a sprint as moose or whitetail deer,the caribou migrates over far greater distances.
