Images from a trip to Jameson Land in the middle of March:
Preparing for “take off” after a night camping in Klitdal
Arriving at the red cabin on Jameson Land
Getting up close to a musk-ox is always exciting
The rest of the herd stayed close to us for several hours after the hunt
Waking up to another beautiful morning
The dogs are hanging out in the sun –
– with bellies still full of musk-ox meat!
Some of my dogs got far too close to an angry musk-ox bull under the hunt.
By now, their injuries are all healed, and I hope they´ve learned their lesson.
Back at the red cabin we prepare the sledges for the way home to Ittoqqortoormiit.
We still have about 80 km to go.
Those two are too much in love to care about food!
We are looking forward to their puppies, to be born later this month.
In Klitdal, on our way home.
Wonderful to see photos from the old hunting grounds, where we shot musk ox in the 1980s, brought the meat back to Ittoqqortoormiit for distribution among the households.
I´m glad to hear that! It would be interesting to hear about your experiences from back then. Today, most people actually go musk ox hunting by snowmobile.
we were there too!!! only saw some musk ox footprints but not a single musk ox tho glad you guy got some!!!
You were at the red cabin? From there, it took us 4-5 hours to reach a small herd of musk ox.
