Greenland Muskox

Canada North has been operating hunts in the region of Cambridge Bay since 1995 with not only high Hunter Success but an incredible amount of appreciation gained by our clients for the Inuit people and their skills on the land and the culture. Many Muskox taken in the region would qualify for the Pope and Young record book and the SCI record book. Safari Club International classifies all Island Muskox as “Greenland Muskox”.

Hunting Greenland Muskox is carried out from Cape Peel to Mount Pelly, on the southern coast of Victoria Island. Client-hunters fly by regularly scheduled airline to the village hamlet of Cambridge Bay, and from there, travel by boat that takes 4 to 6 hours to the hunting area. Contact Us to Book

Muskox Spring Hunt – Mid-March to Mid-April

Muskox hunts are by far the greatest way to experience Inuit culture and the Canadian Arctic. The hamlet of Cambridge Bay is situated on Victoria Island. Canada North Outfitting has been very involved and instrumental in recent Muskox Health surveys and other research related activities constantly working hand in hand with research scientists in conjunction with the Inuit people and their traditional knowledge to assist in managing this unique population.

These ice age animals are highly sought after for their unique and tremendous look making them a hunting favorite. The Greenland variety of Muskox living in Nunavut, are larger than those actually found in Greenland with clients consistently harvesting very mature bulls.

Canada North Outfitting has maintained unparalleled harvest success rate on high quality bulls throughout our history. We have met or exceeded client expectations and have put more smiles on more faces while hunting in and experiencing the harshest environment on Earth. Contact Us to Book

Greenland Muskox - Spring Hunt
Greenland Muskox - Fall Hunt

Muskox Fall Hunt – Mid-October to Early November

These Arctic Islands Caribou and Greenland Muskox hunts are carried out by snowmobile and an Inuit sled (Komatik) or ATV. Accessing the hunting areas by snowmobile/ATV allows the guide and client to cover a tremendous amount of ground thus increasing odds on finding mature bulls.

Depending on the year, snow is on the ground and most large lakes are frozen, while temperatures are still cool you do not have the extreme cold of March Hunts. The hunting camps are very basic plywood cabins heated with stove oil or white gas cooking stoves. Clients can rent down parkas and pants through Canada North Outfitting in Cambridge Bay upon your arrival.
