Artic Islands Caribou (SCI assessment) and / or Greenland Muskox (SCI Classification), Victoria Island - Cambridge Bay, Nunavut
3-4 days of hunting

 

Arctic IslandFrom mid-October to mid-November the herds of Artic Islands Caribou pull into the southwest corner of Victoria Island. Caribou will often draw just outside the city limits of Cambridge Bay, where hunters will often see hundreds of Caribou daily. Cambridge Bay on Victoria Island is also known as the "Muskox Capital of the World" since the Southern part of Victoria Island has a population of over 30,000 animals, and the whole island a total of over 45,000 animals.

 

Safari Club International SCI classifies all Victoria Island Muskox as the Greenland race. Trophy quality Muskox from this area is second to none among the arctic islands. Our partner in Canada has operated in this area since 1995 with a 100% success rate, also with Bow Hunting. All animals taken with a bow would go into the Pope & Young record book plus SCI record book.

Arctic IslandTo move around the hunting area, clients will be transported by snowmobile or dog sled. To travel by snowmobile allows you to cover an incredibly wide area and the ability to find many big bulls. Winter has just started at this time so the weather is not as bad as the March-April hunt.
