  • Walrus hunting

    Walrus skull on display at the Musée de la Mer.

    Silently and always upwind is how the walrus hunters of the Magdalen Islands approached these enormous beasts so that they would not flee or attack!

    With two hunting seasons a year and 4000 to 5000 walruses killed, they harvested about 1800 barrels of oil and an impressive amount of ivory.

    Walrus hunting continued until the animals disappeared from the Islands area, in 1799.
