Bison – Muskox – Exotics


HCU’s Bob Wodzisz has been to this camp on both the spring hunt and the fall hunt for both muskox and caribou.

This outfit has 4 camps and conducts spring muskox only hunts or fall muskox can be com- bined with caribou. These hunts can be 3 days, which is typical in the spring for muskox only, or up to 5 or 6 days for fall hunts that can be single animal or combination hunts. Success re- mains near 100 percent for both animals.

Spring muskox hunts in March and early April are 3 days for $8,100 and a second muskox can be taken for an additional $3,500. Non hunters are priced at $3,500. Spring hunts are during cold temperatures and make for a great adventure experiencing this beautiful fro- zen country where you see plenty of muskox and have a chance to hunt small game such as ptarmigan, arctic hare, arctic fox and seeing the Northern Lights. This hunt can be combined with a 2 hour dog sled trip or possibly some ice fishing for around $500. Spring hunts are the least physical as they can travel by ATV or snow machine. Accommodations are a cabin, or some hunters prefer to stay in town at the motel at their own expense, about $200 per night.

Fall hunts running from August into early September are normally 5 or 6 days out of tents or possibly a cabin. This hunt is priced at $8,100 for either muskox or caribou and the combina- tion hunt is $11,100. An additional muskox or caribou is priced at $3,500 each. Non hunters are $3,500. Caribou hunting is more physical and can require several miles of hiking in more mountainous terrain. Caribou tend to lose their velvet late August into the first few days of Sep- tember. Temperatures normally run from 30 for the low and up to 70 for the high.

High country helicopter hunts from mid September into October are either 5 or 6 days and higher priced as it requires a helicopter transport to camp, which is included in the price. Typically, they have cabin accommodations, and this area is known for very good caribou hunting. Single species hunt for muskox or cari-bou is $9,600 or a combination hunt is $12,500. Additional muskox or caribou are priced at $3,500 each. Non hunters are $5,000. Tempera- tures normally are 30 for the low and 50 for the highs.

Travel to Greenland is typically best accomplished by flying to Copenhagen, Denmark and overnight at the hotel at your expense, then onto Kangerlussuaq the following day. Another possible option is from Iceland to Kangerlussuaq but this normally involves more stops and overnights.

Hunt pricing includes tent or possibly cabin accommodations, meals, guiding, licenses, and taxes. RIFLE/AMMO AND SLEEPING BAG is also available at no additional cost but MUST BE RESERVED IN ADVANCE.

Not included are flights to and from Kan- gerlussuaq, hotel accommodations, tanning of hides and shipping of your trophies, which take place several months after your hunt. THERE IS ALSO AN ADDITIONAL $130 PER ANIMAL CHARGE FOR TRANSPORT TO DENMARK. THESE PRICES COULD FLUCTATE WITH CURRENCY CHANGES.
