2009 Hunts Available! -Please email or call for details!

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
