Is there a good chance to see Musk Ox in early October?

If not in Nome, you can see captive musk oxen at the so-called musk ox farm, a research station, managed by the Universitynof Alaska at Fairbanks.

Yes I do know they where just like the wolves in Yellowstone, but they are still wild. I'm hoping near Nome in October.

Went to Nome and had a great time seeing The Musk Ox, got lucky on the second day they were right next to the main road.

Have been to Nome many times generally in September and have always seen Musk Ox. Just ask around town and people will tell you where to go for the best chance to see them.

Have fun
