Found solely on the continental mainland of the Canadian Arctic, Barren Ground muskox (SCI Classification) are the world’s largest of all Muskox varieties both in body size and horns. This survivor of the last Ice Age is a unique animal, and Nunavut muskox hunting will be the experience of a lifetime…rivaled only by possibly a polar bear hunt.
The Barren Ground muskox is classified by SCI, and is only found only on the mainland of Nunavut, Canada.
Their range includes the region from the Arctic coast of Queen Maud Gulf to the north, and from Cape Bathurst in the west to the Sherman Basin in the east. Our outfitter has been hunting this area since March of 1986, and entries from their hunters dominate the the Boone and Crockett and SCI record books.
Our Nunavut Muskox Hunting Trip has Unmatched Trophy Quality
Barren Ground muskox are much larger than the Greenland subspecies and our outfitter dominates the record books. Their hunting areas produce tremendous opportunities on high scoring bull muskox with many of the top entries in the B&C, P&Y and SCI record books.
Hunting for Arctic wolf and wolverine as an incidental species can be added to your hunt package. If requested, it must be pre-arranged and prepaid; however, if you do not harvest a wolf or wolverine, you will be refunded the full amount less your license and tag fees. Arctic fox can also be added to your license along with Arctic hare and ptarmigan.
Comfortable camps situated in prime areas that may be up to 160 kilometers from any one of our Inuit communities.
In our new locations, you will have the option of staying in the local community hotel with Inuit Guides, taking you out on the land daily, or camping out on the land. Transportation is by snowmobile while hunters are towed behind in an Inuit style sled called a “qamutik.”
In 2014 they saw the need for a northern-based guides training program founded on advancing Inuit culture and traditions. The program’s instructors are local Inuit Senior guides and elders who have an acute knowledge of the land and its wildlife. Southern values do not drive the course outline, thus keeping with the generational passing down of Inuit Knowledge and the skills required to venture out on the land, sea and ice.
The Inuit are skilled hunters, and the goal of the guides training program looks to complement these traditional abilities by offering certification for the knowledge they already possess and help promote a lifestyle and work opportunities for additional local guides.
