About this hunt

This is a 6 day Caribou hunt package with 4 full hunting days and 1 trophy Caribou license included to the price. The hunt is done on foot. So you have to be in a fairly good condition, so you can walk 5 km out, and 5 km back with 30 kg meat/trophy on your back in varied terrain. But the longer you can walk, the better are the chances for big animals. Octoberhunt is a bit colder, can be down to minus 20 celcius, men still long days, and not really cold weather as it is just the start of winter. So its almost like winterhunt.. The hunt is still traditional hunt on foot like in august and september, but it is possible to ad transport of all meat and trophy, so after the animals is skinned and cut its placed in a tent, and you can as a hunter continue your hunt without thinking about how we get the trophy and meat down. We then pick it up with dogsledge/skipulk/carry it. Compound bow hunting is possible only on 1x1 basis (7150 euro per package), crossbow hunting is not allowed. Caribou in our hunting area (sub area 5) is a free-range indigenous north american ”Central barren ground caribou”. But even though it's documented by the Greenland Nature Institute, not all hunting organisations see it that way, so SCI does not accept it into the SCI 29 Award. But Grand Slam Club Ovis accepts it into the Super Slam award. So please check it with you organisation if you are going for a award. The meat can not be exported according to the EU regulations, but you can bring up to 10 kg with you on your flight out of Greenland (please check meat import rules for your country). All harvested meat is used, either for human consumption, or as dogfood for my dogs depending on the quality. You must bring your own sleepingbag, there will be minimum +5 celcius in the camp at night We take max 4 hunters per group on this hunt.

Success rate

Our succesrate for caribou in october er 100%, and we usually have real good hunts where we see more big bulls each day. Our succesrate for musk-ox in the area is over 95%, but the last couple of years we had a little fewer musk-ox in the area, especially late october, so for future hunts we still promish 95% succes, but only 75% chance of a big bull.

Where you will hunt

Territory

In autumn we have two concession areas (other outfitters can’t hunt there, but local hunters can go meat hunting in the areas). Both areas are unique, since area 9 is partially in the Inuit hunting World Heritage Site, and all of area 11 is in the World Heritage Site. Only our company and one other outfitter can offer hunts in this unique area. Concession area 11 is about 22.500 acres, and here we hunt in July, the first two hunts in August, and during all of October. The area is bounded by another concession area to the west, and a free hunting zone to the east. Transportation to this area is faster, just about 2 hours from the hunting camp, and all luggage is transported by a car and a boat to the camp. The easier access to the area results in many local hunters being there at the end of August and September, but at this time we are hunting in our other concession area.

Where you will stay

Camp

Our hunting camp is next to a big lake in the south side of the concession area, right where the best hunting in the area starts. The two first hunts in august in there is tentcamp. The octoberhunts is with heated mobile cabins. There will be 1 guide per 2 hunters, and there will be some work with cutting meat, salting and drying meat, skinning and preservation of trophies, and different camp work. So it's necessary that everybody helps out so that the guides have time enough for everything. We bring normal food, breakfast products, bread and cold meats, and we eat the meat from the animals we shoot, with potatoes and rice etc. After the hunt you stay at Kangerlussuaq Youth Hostel as included in the price.

How to get there

Navigation guidelines

When you fly here, then you travel to Copenhagen airport in Denmark, from there you fly with Air Greenland to Kangerlussuaq in Greenland, where we pick you up at the airport. It is possible to fly over Keflavik in Iceland to Nuuk and then Kangerlussuaq. But it can give some problems with delays and luggage, and the price is almost the same. So we do not recommend that route. Even thow is possible to fly direct over Copenhagen, its more safe to stay overnight in Copenhagen, and if you come from far away like the US, then 2 nights is better. Its up to you to get here on the correct date. You must bring your home country hunting permit and/or weapons permit.This is required by the hunting adminstration. When bringing your own hunting rifle you also need to bring the weapon papers for that rifle to show at check on with the Airlines. Check in with hunting rifle at AirGreenland takes about 30 min extra because of paperworks, and the weapon has to be handed over at a special counter. But this is not complicated to bring a hunting rifle.

Excellent hunting experience

9.7 of 10

Lots of big caribou. You should take a couple of days to find the right one. Don’t shoot the first one. Plenty of opportunities. Musk ox was more difficult to get but was able to get a good old bull the last day. Hunting area is great and cabin is warm and comfortable. True hunting experience. Guides are the highlight. Real good people who will work hard for you.

Was a great hunting trip Everything and more than I thought. Eric has great guides and helpers. They put everything they had into getting everyone a great animal. Martin (guide) went out of his way to make sure everyone had the hunting experience they were looking for. Very hard hunt (physically) at this time of year.

10.0 of 10

Everyone at camp was a hunter and was willing to work very hard to get the game, and the experience.

The extra cost to take the game out of the wilderness.

High quality

Opinion of Greenland Trophy Hunting

9.3 of 10

The hunt was physically challenging for me. I liked all the hard walking. I am 71 yo and my guides helped me by carrying my pack when I got really tired. They did not complain. They were very professional. There were plenty of animals. The food in camp was really good. The scenery and the Northern lights were incredible The wild Musk Ox and Carib. meat was great. The guides really worked to get me a close shot, ensuring a successful hunt.

It was really cold at night. If I knew it was going to be so cold I would have bought some warmer clothes. The weather was unusually cold not really the fault of the outfitter. In early Sept. I was not expecting it to be 14 degree F
