Here are a few of our hunters just returning from some early season hunts.

DISCOUNTED TEXAS FREE RANGE WHITETAILS IN THE HILL COUNTRY
This longtime outfitter has a few openings available for this December now priced at only $3,200 for a 4 day hunt and the dates could work for students over Christmas break. He has a couple private ranches with over 30,000 acres and success typically runs near 100 percent on bucks averaging about the 130 class and they normally take a few top end bucks breaking the 150 inch mark. High deer numbers, nice comfortable ranch house accommodations, good weather and fun guides make up a recipe for an affordable and enjoyable hunt. Airport pickup in San Angelo is also included. Hunt WD233.
MUSKOX HUNT WAS A BIG SUCCESS AND CHEAP
HCU’s Bob Wodzisz took a hunter with him checking out a new Greenland muskox/caribou operation in early March. Spring hunts are just for muskox as the better caribou bulls have lost their antlers by this time. The fall hunt can include caribou along with muskox.
Bob and Dennis flew out of Chicago to Copenhagen, Denmark on an 8 hour flight. Spent the night close to the Copenhagen airport at a nice hotel priced at $290 for double occupancy with a great breakfast. They also have a nice restaurant and lounge. Next day took a 4 hour flight to Kangerlussuaq, Greenland where they were met by the outfitter and dropped off travel clothes and gear not needed for their hunt. Went by pickup for about 40 minutes driving up a frozen fjord. Went another 45 minutes by track ATV and snowmobile on the frozen river to their camp. Normally they are able to drive trucks to the camp, but this spring it was unusually colder and they had to reach camp by other means. Camp was a small heated cabin with outhouse facilities, no shower, but not necessary as the spring hunt is only 3 days. Bob had enough time to get out and harvest an arctic hare before supper consisting of muskox meat.
First morning out they took ATV’s up the frozen river system glassing for muskox. By 10 am they had seen 3 groups of muskox totaling about 30 animals and Bob’s hunter, Dennis, killed a nice mature bull they estimated at 10 years of age. Back to camp by 1 pm where they had a nice lunch. Bob and his guide went back out in the afternoon where they looked over 5 more groups of muskox totaling about 50 animals and decided to pass and spend a little more time hunting the next day.
Second morning after a big breakfast they headed down another river system and up into the mountains. Passed on a group of 5 bulls and rode into a big wide valley where they glassed 5 more groups consisting of about 40 muskox in all. The guide picked out an old mature bull and Bob filled his tag. After pictures, skinning and quartering they headed back to camp while chasing a few ptarmigan on the way. After a big supper they had an enjoyable night watching a spectacular display of the Northern Lights.
Third day since their tags were filled they decided to pack up and head back to town. They were dropped off at a hotel by the Kangerlussuaq airport, where a room was priced at $275 for double occupancy. The hotel had a small restaurant/lounge and a couple close local souvenir shops to purchase a few trinkets. They checked in grabbed a shower and supper, while the guide brought back their travel clothes and stored luggage.
Fourth day they flew out of Greenland about noon, landed in Copenhagen, Denmark that evening and spent the night. Next day they left Copenhagen about noon, flew to New Jersey then the last flight to home arriving around 6 that evening.
Current price in this spring muskox hunt is $5,200.
Bob is looking to put together a small group for the fall muskox hunt that can INCLUDE A CARIBOU for late September or early October of 2018. We are anticipating a 5 or 6 day hunt will be priced at $6,100 for muskox or caribou only or a combination would be $8,900. This would most likely be the pricing if we can get September dates that will not require a helicopter transfer.
