Crazy foot note. The village population is about 1500. The only fresh goods that come in, are flown in. They live a subsistence lifestyle. I asked how many caribou the village eats a year, estimated at 5,000. So they know what they are doing. All the caribou that were shot, they waited 1.5 to 2 hrs to start processing. The belly would swell up so big the hind legs would separate by 4-6”. They say the meat is more tender and taste better when you wait to process? Pretty sure they know more than me on eating local/fresh. I am going to try that on next whitetail. Their culture is very interesting, all based on subsistence hunting.
Muskox taste like goat (billy) to me. The locals greatly prefer caribou over muskox. Might by why there are muskox everywhere? We caught a lot of lake trout. They didn’t care anything about trout. They only fish they wanted was Arctic Char.
