The hunting method is to stalk them cautiously and stealthily and you will probably have to hide as much as you can. However, in most cases a shooting distance of 60 to 80 meters can be achieved. The noise of the dogs that are used to pull the traditional sled can scare the specimens at a greater distance, therefore, transport within the area is done with eight-wheelers or quads.These vehicles are only used for transportation in the area and to detect play.
Once a group of muskox is detected, stalking begins. Stalking distances will not be more than a couple hundred meters at about 1 or 1.5 km. As oxen are mostly found in the valleys, stalking is not really physically demanding. Once the muskox is fired, it is cleaned and the trophy is prepared with salt.
Recomendable calibres are 338 Win.Mag, 7mm, 300 Win. Mag., 8 x 68 and similar. It is possible to bring your own rifle, but the formalities at Copenhagen airport are quite exhaustive so it is a waste of time. It is recommended to hunt with a rented rifle which will normally be a Remington in cal. 338 or similar, equipped with scope. This will make your trip much easier and more relaxed.
