The best-known game of Greenland is the indigenous Greenland Musk Ox (Ovibos moschatus wardi), sometimes called White-faced Musk Ox or Umingmak by the Inuits, meaning the bearded one. The Musk Ox is closely related to goats but has its own genus, Ovibos (sheep ox in Latin)
These seemingly huge animals with long haired, thick and dark brown to black coats have impressive trophies with a high scarcity value. Hunting this ancient game species in the rough but fascinating landscape of Greenland is an experience that enthuses every hunter.
Mature bulls stand from 110 cm to 150 cm high at the shoulder and weigh between 300 kg and 400 kg. Horns of mature bulls reach lengths of
50 cm to 65 cm. Muskoxen are hard to bring down, and hunters are advised to use calibers from 30-06 and larger with heavy bullets.
