Difficult working conditions for a hunter

Here are three pictures in a series showing a hunter bringing his boat from the ice edge 2 kilometers out at sea to a safe haven. The pictures were taken from our field office Qaqqaliaq while we were having cold and difficult working conditions as well.

The dogs belonging to the homecoming hunter have waited a the ice edge the whole day and are now trying together with their owner to pull the boat to shore. Photo: M. Christoffersen

The laod was too heavy so a snowscooter is ready to pull together with the dogs. Photo: M. Christoffersen

Success! Now even the hunter gets a ride sitting on the back of his boat. Photo: M. Christoffersen
