Polar bears are thriving unlike many would like you to believe – there are an estimated 30,000 in the world. By far and away the most exist in Nunavut where an estimated 20,000 exist. It is also the only place to hunt them. The hunts are more for conservation and actually help the population. Also the villages make a good portion of their income from these hunts.
There are two distinct types of muskox in North America. The Barren Ground muskox is found on mainland Canada of the Northwest Territories and Nunavut as well as King William Island. This type of muskox has the largest horns and heaviest bodies of the two types, weighing up to 750 pounds. The Greenland muskox is found on the arctic islands in the Northwest Territories and Nunavut as well as Greenland. Hunts can be conducted in the winter/spring or fall. With guard hairs as long as 24 inches, muskox appear to have a “skirt”. Once harvested, they make a beautiful full body mount. The meat is as fine as prime beef and should be sampled before leaving camp.
