Def looks like a cool hunt! Congrats on your trophy..just out of curiosity what does a hunt like that run ya?
Full body mount? It would be a lot of cash but I'd definitely try to round up the funds for that.
Man that looks lie such an awesome hunt! Well done and congrats on a fantastic bull!

Curious, what was the temperature? Also what poundage were you shooting?
Always wanted to hunt muskox, beautiful bull. What did that hunt run ballpark?

Hunt of a lifetime congrats
I'll give a quick recount of the story. I booked the musk ox hunt through bowhunter safari consultants. I'm a school teacher so I went up north during my spring break. From door to door including airfare I was right at 10K. I hunted with Canada North Outfitters. There were 3 of us in camp, I was the only archer. First day of the hunt was a wash as the weather was bad. We ran into the first herd the second full day. A herd of about 20 musk ox. The bull I shot seperated from the herd. He stopped once and then ran another kilometer until he stopped. 25 yard shots. My first shot was just off the mark, so I nocked another one and sent the second shaft through the beast. Ran 30 yards before expiring. All-in-all, a great adventure. The people are really nice and friendly.
I was shooting a Hoyt set at 67 pounds, 30 inch Beman ICS hunter arrows tipped with Magnus stinger arrows. Having a shoulder mount done as the price of a lifesize was just too great. I did bring back the backstraps. They are a bit chewy but great tasting.
Forgot to mention. Temperatures ranged anywhere from -10 to 10 above without the wind chill. I had great gear and was never cold. The ride in the sled was cool but not cold. Saw arctic fox, hare, and ptarmagin.
Very cool. Thanks for sharing.
Thats very cool. Congratulations!
Sweet ! That is a beautiful animal and an awsome adventure, I am sure. What clothing did you use and how many days was the hunt ?
Wow buddy thats a world away from Indiana. Congrats on a great hunt and a fine trophy and thank you for sharing it with us.
Make sure to post pics of the mount when you get it back from the taxi!!
That sounds like a fun hunt to do. Hunting any species should be fun though.

I'm not that easily distracted. Look! Something shiny!
Cat1414, I used a 2 piece snow suit from Cabelas Outfitter gear series (I don't think they even make them anymore), Sorrell boots, with ice breaker boot blankets, 1 fleece union suit, a pair of nylon sweat pants to keep the wind out, and a second long underwear shirt. For gloves I used a light pair of knit gloves and topped that off with Northern Outfitters mitts. I wore a heavy weight balaclava, fleece dickie (neck covering) and I borrowed a beaver hat. Snow goggles that were polarized. The only flesh exposed to the weather was the tip of my nose. I can say I honestly never felt uncomfortably cold. I was in the camp for 3 days and in town 3 days due to weather.
What an adventure. That would be an experience for sure.
