This Arctic adventure ranks right near the top. Both for giant Musk Ox, and overall northern experience in the vast wilderness of the spectacular Northwest Territories. Hunt with one of Canadas longest standing outfitters in the most prime rut window, exploring the taiga biome in search of what may be the world’s largest Musk Ox. We are talking big, mainland Barren Ground variety from the “Sahtu” region, home of the current world record bulls.
Having personally guided this hunt for many years, success rates on big mature bulls has been an honest 100%, with nearly all of our client’s taking Musk Ox scoring well above the 105 net B&C record minimums. The tradeoff is limited availability with only six tags annually in a unit the size of Ohio! Those lucky few will enjoy the lovely early fall Arctic weather, colors and scenery.
The bugs are done biting, but the fish certainly haven’t! Enjoy bonus opportunities at massive Lake Trout or Arctic Grayling, or special Arctic Char fly-outs (again home to all IGFA world records) from the comfort of an iconic full-service fishing lodge. Incredibly remote and serviced only by aircraft, the lodge is north of the Arctic Circle but offers luxuries and amenities unexpected in such isolated wilderness.
Logistics are simple and hunters only need to get themselves to Yellowknife. Charter flights are already included in every package, which provides a great opportunity for a non-hunting observers or fishing buddies to tag along – on what usually becomes one of life’s great adventures! Perhaps the only Musk Ox hunt you can drive both your meat and trophy home if desired!
"Adrian navigated what turned into a 5-year obstacle course to hunt Musk Ox. From booking a cancellation hunt, to multi-year Covid postponements, he hung with me until the horns were in the salt. Result: a top 20 B&C bull! Thanks Adrian, for your knowledge and reliability."

"This exceptional hunt was organized and co-guided by Adrian. Very professional with timely communication and seamless logistics. The guiding was excellent, with precise knowledge of the terrain and species hunted. I highly recommend TAIGA and looking forward to future hunts with Adrian."

"What can I say? I got a big Boone & Crocket Musk OX on a warm sunny day in the tundra. A buddy joined me and he also came out with a net Booner. Heck of a place. The logistics, guides, equipment, trophy care, lodgings and meals were all excellent. Likely the world's finest Musk Ox hunting experience."
