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

The dogs are hanging out in the sun –

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.

  1. 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.
