Our octoberhunts is in our other conscession area nr 11. A beautifull area where you can see the inlandice from camp.
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 mainly traditional hunt on foot, but with the dogsledge for transport of meat and trophy back to camp. So you still have to walk alot, but without the heavy work of carrying meat and trophy back. Depending of terrain, we can use dogsledge partially as persons transport, with no gurante because it depends of snow conditions.
On some hunts we might not bring the dogs if the snow conditions are bad. When the dogsledge isent there, meat and trophies is stored in tents, and is brought down with dogsledge later. But wery important compared to hunts in aug-sept, you dont have to carry down trophies and meat.
Our succesrate for musk-ox in the area is over 95% with almost all as old bulls, and about 98% on caribou.
Our camp is at a big lake right in front of the huntingarea. We use mobile smaller cabins build together and they are heated. Tents for our gear.
Transport from Kangerlussuaq is with car the first 20 km until we are at the big lake, from here we sail all stuff over the lake to the camp. If there is heavy wind it might be nescessary to walk around the lak eto camp.
There will be 1 guide pr two hunters.
Food is normal food, oatmeal with milk, bred and cold cuts, hot food in the evening where we mostly eat the huntes animals, and there will be tea and coffe.
Its okay to enjoy a beer or a whiskey or two in the evening, but not during the hunt.

As with all hunting, even thow our succesrate is high, we cant gurante you will get your animal. So please be realistic with your expectations, and alot depends on your fitness, and skill with a rifle.
