Feasting with foxes

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.
