Outfitter #062

ARCTIC ISLANDS CARIBOU and GREENLAND MUSK OX COMBO

Or Call: 1-800-346-8747

Description

From mid-October to mid-November scattered herds of caribou move into the southeast corner of Victoria Island with groups often migrating right outside the town limits of Cambridge Bay. Safari Club International lists the caribou and muskox living on Victoria Island as “Arctic Islands Caribou” and “Greenland Muskox” for their record book classifications. However, Boone & Crockett, Pope & Young and Grand Slam Club Ovis lists’ these animals as
a “Central Canada Barren Ground Caribou” and a “Muskox”.

Mulitple WTA consultants have personally hunted with this outfitter who has been operating hunts on Victoria Island since 1995 with an unparralled harvest sucess rate. Virtually all of the trophy animals taken by bow hunters would qualify for the Pope & Young record book and certainly the SCI record book.

Guides access the hunting areas by snowmobile while hunters are towed behind in an Inuit style sled called a “kamotik”. Travel by snowmobile allows the guide and client to cover a tremendous amount of area. Winter is just starting when these hunts take place so the conditions are not as harsh as in the March-April muskox only hunts.

Accommodations during the hunt are heated basic plywood cabins that Inuit use as shelters while out on the land. Camps are situated from less than 1 hour to over 4 hours away by snowmobile ride from the community.
NOTE: Hunters have the option to stay at the local hotel throughout the hunt at the daily room rate.
