- Herd size (2008) 1,500
- Herd size (2006) 3,000
The entire range of this herd is restricted to the Tuktoyaktuk Peninsula on the Arctic coast. The area had once been used for herding reindeer, and it has been suggested that this herd moved back into the area when the reindeer were moved off in 2001. Some of the herd may be feral reindeer, or of mixed reindeer/caribou ancestry.
In 2006, it numbered an estimated 3,000 animals. The latest (2018) estimate showed the herd declining to 1,500. There is no specific management plan for this herd, and there are no restrictions on the Inuvialuit harvest of the herd. There is no hunting in the area from April 1 to June 15 to allow the Cape Bathurst caribou to migrate.
