    Back in 2014 I took 2 friends to Greenland to hunt for Muskox, and small game.
    I hunted as well, taking a big old bull, black fox, Ptarmigan and white hare.
    My friends took big Bulls, black and white foxes, ptarmigan and hares too.

    It was a cold hunt, minus 50c at points, but bearable due to the dry air. It's a hunt/ experience I recommend 100%.

    With the right clothes the cold wasn't a problem.

    Congratulations. I eventually want to hunt muskox. Did you rent rifles or bring yours in?

    Borrowed the guides. We used a Mauser MO3 7x64, and Steyr 9.2x62.
    It's a great experience and cheaper than most outfits.
