Hunter shares his first narwhal: ‘I couldn’t stop smiling’

Randy Ryan Innukshuk, from Rankin Inlet, poses with a narwhal he caught off Marble Island roughly 40 kilometres southeast of the hamlet on Sunday. Innukshuk, 20, said it was his first-ever narwhal catch. “I was so happy I couldn’t stop smiling,” he said. He added “this is special, because Rankin rarely has narwhals around here.” The young hunter said he gave all of it out to the community to celebrate. (Photo courtesy of Randy Ryan Innukshuk)
