Lax A: Caribou Hunting In Greenland

Kópavogur, Iceland
Reindeer, Musk ox, Caribou

In South Greenland, the main trophy, along with Musk Ox, is wild reindeer (Rangifer tarandus tarandus). This species is one of two reindeer/caribou species in Greenland and were brought in from Scandinavia in 1952.

Caribou and reindeer are of the same genus and species, Rangifer tarandus, and are differentiated only by sub-species. The feral-reindeer are larger than its indigenous Barren Ground Caribou but aside from that their appearance and habits are similar.

Reindeer, pronounced Tuttu in Greenlandic, are of great importance to the Inuit as a source of meat, but also plays a role in their history, culture, and traditions. They can vary considerably in size, with females weighing up to 90 kg (198 lb) and male bulls

150 kg (331 lb).

Reindeer hunting is a challenging experience involving great personal reward. Hunters can choose from various calibers to hunt Reindeer though the minimum
