WEAPONS OF CHOICE

Rifle

Most shots are taken under 200 yards. We recommend a high powered rifle (300 magnum or larger) with a minimum 150 grain bullet.  Magnums cartridges are a great choice. You should bring at least 40 rounds.

Muzzleloader

Black powder is becoming extremely popular for muskox hunting these days. For those looking at taking one with a black powder please let us know ahead of time as you most likely will not get powder or primers on a commercial airliner. Let us know what you need for these items and we will make sure it is at the camp for your arrival.

Please note:  we need 30 days to purchase ammunition for those wishing to hunt with a muzzleloader.  Archery and gun targets will be set up at camp.

Archery

For archers, we recommend a minimum draw weight of 20 kg at 700 mm draw and broad-head width of 25 mm.
