Spring Musk ox and Arctic Wolf Combo
April 24 to 30 - 4 hunts available
Umingmak, or Barren Ground Muskox hunts take place East of the Thelon Game Sanctuary. Hunters and guides will travel by snowmobile from the community of Baker Lake (which is the geographic centre of Canada).
We began hunting this area in 2007 and have a success rate near 100%. Over 50% of our bulls score high enough to make the Boone & Crockett record book. Barren Ground Muskox are up to 15% larger than their Greenland Muskox cousins.
Our original hunts took place in March, but we now offer hunts in late April where temperatures will be approximately 20 degrees milder!
This area is virtually un-hunted. We stay in the community of Baker Lake to take advantage of comfortable lodging not generally associated with Muskox hunts. This also gives us the flexibility to head out in whatever direction the Muskox are. The ability to travel in any direction is key in giving the hunter excellent opportunities to harvest trophy bulls and Arctic Wolf!
We have also been near 100% success on Arctic Wolves. Their pelts come in a variety of
colours, from almost white to black. Most have a grayish blue tinge to their fur.
Once your hunt is completed, your guide will prep and pack your trophies for shipping to our recommended taxidermist. They will also quarter out the animal (Muskox) and get the meat back to Baker Lake.
Our package is all inclusive from Winnipeg. The hunts are guided 1 x 1.

Entry into Canada
For guests travelling from the U.S.:
If you are a U.S. citizen, ensure you carry proof of citizenship such as a passport, birth certificate, a certificate of citizenship or naturalization, a U.S. Permanent Resident Card, or a Certificate of Indian Status along with photo identification.
For international guests:
The Government of Canada requires that all travellers carry a valid passport because it is the only reliable and universally-accepted travel and identification document for the purpose of international travel.
You will need to arrive in Winnipeg the day before your hunt starts and overnight. The next morning we will fly you up to Baker Lake.
We recommend the Four Points by Sheraton at the Winnipeg International Airport for your overnight in Winnipeg.
What to Expect:
Arrive in Winnipeg the day before your Hunt date and spend the night. We can help with booking rooms if you need.
The following day you will be flown to Baker Lake, Nunavut on Calm Air. We will send you the flight itinerary once we book your flight. There are 3 to 4 legs to the flight, so it will take a good portion of the day. You will check into the hotel at Baker Lake. The guides will already be there. We have a 12 hour waiting period in Nunavut so you will not start hunting until the next morning. However, you hunt includes 5 full days of hunting.
Day 2 through 6 are your hunt days:
Breakfast and supper will be served at the hotel. Lunch will be packed for you and taken onto the tundra. You will leave town on snow machine. You will have your own. If you have access to one in your area, it would be good to get familiar with riding it. They are simple to learn to drive.
You will target Musk Ox first, but any wolf you see on your travels is fair game! Once your Musk Ox is down, you will go after your wolf!!
On your last day you will fly to Winnipeg. Because of the multiple legs of the flight, you will spend most of the day travelling, that is why we recommended flying home the following day. Again we can help with booking rooms if needed.
We recommend Mr. Fish Taxidermy for handling of your trophies. They will take care of the permits, brokerage, etc. You can call them direct for pricing: Ask for Wes Wall at 1-204-755-3474

We can ship your trophies to Mr. Fish Taxidermy for fleshing, salting and shipping to a U.S. based Taxidermist.

We recommend this option but please call Wes Wall with Mr. Fish Taxidermy regarding delivery time and costs involved (Ph: 1-204-755-3474)
Mr. Fish Taxidermy can also do the taxidermy work and ship to you direct when complete.
