The Northwest Territories , Canada is renowned for world-class hunting and fishing.
We have been working closely with the camp manager on these hunts. This
area is home to musk ox, central barren ground caribou, grizzly, wolverine,
red fox and wolves with great fishing opportunities for lake trout, northern
pike, and grayling. This is prime habitat for musk ox with miles of white
caribou moss covering the rolling terrain and frequent shrubby, black
spruce. On the edge of the tree line with one of the largest concentrations
of musk ox in the Arctic this area is virtually unhunted, providing a great
opportunity for record bulls. Travel by snowmobile and ATV. Get to see the
land through the eyes of the experienced Inuit guides who have been guiding
and hunting in the area for generations and know the land and the ways of
the musk ox. This camp has only 6 Musk Ox tags in
total with a limited
openings for the current year. Early booking recommended. There is an excellent
opportunity for a very unique Musk Ox hunt. Please call or email for complete
details and references on these hunts
