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 often there is a little snow, so we can use small plastic sleds to pull down the animals. 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 bring max 4 hunters pr group.

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

All of this area is in the World Heritage Site. 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. There might be local meathunters in the area, but no other outfitters.

The octoberhunts is with big heated kitchentent, and heated mobile cabin for sleeping.. 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.

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. In 2025 a new airport opens i Nuuk and that will be the main airport, and with better flight conditions than now. So by then it should be easier to get here from north america. US-Iceland-Nuuk-Kangerlussuaq. 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.

Quality trophy hunt.

9.0 of 10

Guides were very knowledgeable of the area. There was a lot of game and trophy quality animals.

The food was sub par. We ate the same thing every day. I was unaware of the exchange rate between US dollar and Denmark currency. This added an extra 800+ dollars to my trip. Also the cost that the outfitter charged to ship my trophies from Greenland to Denmark seemed higher than the actual cost of shipping. Once an animal is down the guide takes it back to camp. It’s the Hunter’s responsibility to take the trophies out of camp at the completion of the hunt. This hike is extremely difficult and not suited for most hunters. Or you can pay the outfitter. This can be very pricey. The reason why they charge to get your trophies out is because most Foreign hunters do not tip. American hunters tip so there is a bit of confusion. What I did learn is if you pay the guide to take your trophies out the fees that they charge is their tip. I carried my trophies out myself and tipped due to the confusion

You can be out of shape and still get a musk ox

9.7 of 10

First and foremost, Musk Ox were everywhere and guides were very professional and helpful. They would also make sure that you have a good time after you harvested your musk ox. We went ice fishing and small game hunting. Second, if you used to hunt public lands out west, this hunt is more like a 30 mins walk in the hippies infested parks in the suburbs. You basically just ride snowmobiles or atv until you spot a group. Then you put on a stalk. In addition, this place does not have much elevations. So most people should be able to handle it without any drama. As a matter of fact, one guy who has bad knees in our group was in his 80s. He knocked down a trophy musk ox on day 1.

Absolutely nothing. Some tips for future hunters. The walls of the cabin were thin. I suggest not bring female companions. (Or male, depending on what you like). Martin, one of the guide, is very fond of plum brandy distilled in Slovakia. Bring him a bottle would make him very happy and work extra hard.

October Caribou and Muskox

9.7 of 10

Rasmus was my guide during the hunt along with Erik who was out there daily. The guides work extremely hard to get out an animal with zero complaints and positive attitudes. Rasmus did a fantastic job and provided great information about the animals and the area. Erik answered any questions I had honestly and true and I knew what to expect before coming to Greenland on the hunt. We ate Muskox and caribou in camp once killed daily and had lots of other things available to eat for us. But, was definitely a simple food choice. I saw Richard’s review above and he was the hunt before us and made sure I knew what to expect as well. We had five individuals in our tour and were all successful for Muskox and Caribou. The weather was cold, down to -20C when we were there and we saw more and more caribou moving in daily. The Muskox were always there and I saw 27 Muskox in total and over 100 caribou in four days of hunting.

Some things to keep in mind, this is a physically challenging hunt. We would walk 15-25k per day along with sledding out animals. It was cold every day going out, but, the accommodations back were nice. We saw lots of Caribou bulls just nothing with huge size, so, don’t expect to come here and kill a record book Caribou. However, some very large Muskox were killed by the other hunters. I ended up killing an old caribou and a young Muskox. Don’t expect a fancy lodge when coming here, we stayed in a nice warm structure and tent that was heated with kerosene.
