World Class Greenland Muskox Hunting in Nunavut, Canada
Cambridge Bay on Victoria Island is the “Muskox Hunting Capital of the World”.
Southern Victoria Island has a population of 30,000 Muskox!
Our clients hold three of the top five trophies of the Greenland muskox as listed in the SCI Record Book. Corey Goss with the No.2 entry has a score of 84 5/8 and both Doug Whitaker and Bob Underwood with a score of 82 3/8 are tied for the No. 3 spot.
This is the only area of Nunavut where the Greenland muskox can be hunted in August and September. This late summer package is ideally suited for individuals concerned about the weather conditions in our March or November hunts.
Daytime temperatures at Victoria Island during this time of year ranges from 2°C to 7°C or (35°F to 45°F). Travelling to and from the hunting area is by boat. Hunters and guides then spot and stalk the inland tundra for muskox. All-terrain vehicles are also used. Expect to encounter a fair amount of game within a few kilometers of the shoreline.

Your outfitter can provide complete round trip travel itineraries from the clientʼs home to the Canadian Gateway city on regular scheduled flights, and preferred rates for regular scheduled flights to the Arctic destination.
Hunting is carried out from Cape Peel to Mount Pelly, on the southern coast of Victoria Island. Client-hunters fly by regularly scheduled airline to the village of Cambridge Bay and from there, travel by boat that takes 4 to 6 hours to the hunting area.
Accommodations are either tents or cabins depending on the location of the muskox at the time of your hunt. The boat and tents give the clients and guides mobility to move along the coast until game is found. Hunters may be expected to help with camp chores.
