This outfit has 3 camps and conducts springmuskox only hunts or fall muskox can be combined with Canadian Central Barren Ground caribou. Prices are much less than the common destination out of Cambridge Bay for muskoxand caribou. These hunts can be 3 days, which is typical in the spring for muskox only, or up to 5or 6 days for fall hunts that can be single animal or combination hunts. Success remains near 100 percent for both animals.

This hunt can be combined with a 2 hour dog sled trip or possibly some ice fish-ing for around $500. This is the least expensive tripand possibly the least physical as they can travel by ATV or snow machine.

This hunt is priced at $7,300 for either muskox or caribou and the combination hunt is $10,100. An additional muskox or caribou is priced at $3,100 each. Non hunters are $3,100.Caribou hunting is more physical and can require several miles of hiking in more mountainous terrain.

This outfitter also offers the spring hunt on the Nunavut mainland near Queen Maude Gulf. Using snow machines on the March 16 to April 13 hunts allows hunters and guides to see plenty of animals.Accommodations are primarily in cabins/homes, but tents may be used if necessary for 5 days of hunting guided 2×2. This hunt can be combined with an arctic wolf and success has been close to 100 percent.

These hunts tends to be priced quite a bit higher than the comparable Greenland hunts, but this hunt has been the most popular destination and is top rated.

HCU’s Cliff Graham and Scott Steinkruger have been on the fall combination hunt and they both report it as one of their most memorable and interesting adventures. Hunt MUV89.  MUV89 Hunt Photos.
