Bow hunting equipment list for muskox and caribou expedition hunts in Greenland
When bowhunting in Greenland, whether you’re hunting Musk or Caribou, you’ll learn that boots is the single most important piece of equipment. On it everything depends: your feet, ankles, knees, back, neck, your hunt and your life! Hunting with sore and wet feet is not fun and in some cases dangerous.
Clothing in layers. Your clothing must breathe, be quiet, comfortable and wick the moisture your body generates. If you sweat, you freeze!
