In the middle of October we left Ittoqqortoormit for a few days to go musk ox hunting in Jameson Land.
The trip took us three days. Day one was used to find and hunt the animals. The second day went with carrying the meat down to shore, and on the last day we returned to Ittoqqortoormiit by boat as soon as the rising tide made it possible to leave the little inlet we`d camped at.
Walking towards the hills behind the inlet where we`ve spotted a small group of musk-ox

Carrying meat down to shore …
… all day long
Foxes having a feast …
… and stocking up on their winter storages
The boat at it`s “parking lot”
On the way home
A pile of meat at our kitchen floor …
… and hot musk ox soup served in the living room 🙂
