It’s a good time to go Muskox hunting as populations are stable and increasing.
Two subspecies of muskox are recognized:
- Barren ground muskox
- Greenland muskox
Native muskox hunting takes place on the north slope of the Canadian mainland from about Cape Bathurst eastward to Hudson Bay, throughout the Canadian arctic islands (except Baffin Island), and on the northern and eastern coasts of Greenland.
There are introduced and/or reintroduced populations in Alaska, Quebec and the west coat of Greenland.
