Arctic Five

This hunt is for adventure hunters who want to experience the arctic winter. The hunting bring us into the remote arctic winter-wilderness.

We will start hunting for Musk Ox, and we will hunt by ATV/snowmobile and on foot on a spot and stalk hunt. Depending on conditions, we use ATVs or snowmobile to bring us into the area, and after spotting the animal, we will start a stalk on foot.

We are hunting under extreme arctic winter conditions; therefore your physical health have to be good. Normally we will be apple to take the vehicle to the dead animal to pick up meat and trophy. If that is not possible, After approaching the lonely bull or family group, there will normally be opportunity to find support for the rifle on rocks or small hills when you are shooting.

The Arctic Five After successful muskox hunting, we start hunting caribou, polar fox, polar hare and ptarmigan. If you succeed with all of the five species you have shot what we in call ''The Arctic Five''! To be mentioned: The Polar Fox can’t be exported due to rabies risk and the caribou has not big trophy’s at this time of year – but still; ''The Arctic Five'' is ''The Arctic Five''!
