Wild MuskOx, Arctic National Wildlife Refuge, ANWR, Alaska.

Hey Folks,

Here’s another Musk Ox photo, from the Canning River, Section 1002 area of the coastal plain of the Arctic National Wildlife Refuge, Alaska. This trip was the first time I’ve seen MuskOx, and it was great to get some images. They’re almost a prehistoric looking creature, very cool, and reasonably calm, if approached carefully. We took over an hour just slowly getting closer and closer – but photos were few and far between, as they tended to stay in the willows and thicker brush, making decent photos hard to come by. Patience was rewarded, and I got this and a few other images that I liked.

    Thats a great pic!! You really got a great shot. I would hate for one of those to head-butt me!! I didn’t know if it was a joke about the wolverine, but the best stronghold to find them is in northwest Montana, Bob Marshall wilderness area. We camped there and heard them all night, since they are mostly noctunal. But the next day we were able to see one dig up a rabbit that a fox caught. That fox wasn’t going to to have anything to do with that wolverine!Hope you are safe!!
