Another plus for this hunt is you don't take one of those long snowmobile rides that beat your insides to jelly. Instead, you travel by boat from the village of Gjoa Haven on King William Island and cross the Gulf of Bothia to arrive at Chantilly Inlet. Hunting is by spot-and-stalk, with transportation by either boat or quad. Still, you need to be capable of a fair bit of walking.
As for trophy quality, Dunn expects both species to be exceptional. This outfitter also hunts caribou farther south where 60 percent of the bulls killed score 360 B & C points or better. He expects equal quality from this new area. As for the muskox, he says that killing a 120 B & C bull is possible. These are excellent scores considering that the B & C Awards minimum for central Canadian barren ground caribou is 345 points, and the all-time minimum is 360 points. For the muskox, the B & C Awards and All-Time minimums are 105 points.
What makes this hunt even more attractive at this point is the significant discount in price that's available. This 10-day hunt is normally priced at $8,000, but has been reduced to $6,500. A non-hunter can go along at the discounted price of $1,200. The flight between Edmonton and Gjoa........(continued)
