Caribou Hunting Trips


ALASKA CARIBOU HUNTS:

Our Alaskan Caribou hunts will take place in either unit 16 or unit 19 or unit 20. They will be 7 day hunts and are all-inclusive once you arrive at base camp. Some of these hunts require the hunter to charter a small plane to the hunts area. The cost for these flights vary from $600 - 1,200.00 dollars. Charter rates will be quoted prior to contracting the hunt. Hunts can be 2x1 or 1x1 upon request. The cost will be $5,200.00 each for 2x1 and $6,200.00 for 1x1 hunts. The hunter can also hunt black bear for an additional $1,000.00 each (one bear maximum each). Brown bear may also be added to this caribou hunt for a trophy fee of $8,000.00, depending on the area hunted.

You will arrive in Anchorage the day prior to your caribou hunt. In some cases the hunter will have to charter a flight to the hunting area. Some camps may go in by horseback or may be flown in by small aircraft. This will depend on the area to be hunted

 Once in base camp, you may be taken to a spike camp for more optimal hunting conditions. You will do lots of glassing and hiking. In some cases fishing may be available as well. After the completion of your caribou hunt, you will be picked up by plane or horseback and returned back to base camp and/or Anchorage. The cost of the flight back to Anchorage will be part of the hunterís charter flight and will be their responsibility. Outfitter is not responsible for weather delays, mechanical, or other issues related to the Air Taxi service. We will, however, do our best to accommodate any delays and will assist in booking the charter flights for the hunter. 

Conditions of Base Camp and Spike Camp: The caribou hunting camps will consist of small remote cabins, wall tents and bombshelters/arctic ovens, as well as mountaineering tents. This will depend entirely on the area to be hunted and the need for spike camps. The hunter will need to bring their own sleeping bag and sleeping pad. Sleeping bag and pad can be provided upon the client's request. 

CARE OF TROPHY: Your trophy caribou will skinned in the field, head and feet removed, and if time allows fleshed by a professional Alaskan guide. Once back in Anchorage, the trophy will be taken to a quality taxidermist for proper fleshing, salting and sealing. This will be at no charge to the hunter.

FOOD: Most of the food provided on the hunt will be Freeze Dried (Mountain House) due to weight restrictions of the aircraft and type of hunt. Where weight is available, steak, fish, chicken and other perishable food will be provided. Other foods such as summer sausage, lunch meat, bacon, cheeses, bagels, breakfast foods, snack foods, various candy, and special request from hunters. Any allergies to food should be specified to the guide/outfitter. A special menu may be provided upon request by the hunter.

HUNT SUCCESS:  This is a low volume high success rate hunt. I take very few hunters per season allowing for a high success in harvesting a trophy caribou. I do not sell animals nor do I guarantee one. I do guarantee a quality Alaskan caribou hunt with professional staff to provide the hunter with the best possible means of harvesting their trophy of a lifetime. The staff are not only hunting  guides, but hunters themselves. We hunt in Unit 6, 9, 14, 16, 19, and 20. We hunt mostly on State and Native owned lands. Other areas may be hunted with prior arrangements. The area is quite large allowing us to move camps if the need arises. Caribou come in an array of sizes and shapes. We try to only harvest mature trophy quality animals. While the guide has the ultimate authority of determining a legal animal, the client is always left the decision whether he/she feels the caribou is the trophy they came to harvest. 

DATES and AVAILABILITY: August 10 - September 20.*

We suggest you arrive at the main camp a day or two prior to your scheduled hunt. Alaska laws prohibits shooting an animal the same day you have flown in an aircraft. Because of this, you will be placed in your hunting camp the day prior to the start of the hunt. The Alaska hunting regulations and the rules of "fair chase" are strictly enforced. WE WILL NEVER HUNT THE SAME DAY YOU FLY. 

*Please Note: These dates are only guidelines and will vary depending on the year and regulation changes.

PRICING: These hunts are either 1x1 or 2x1 7-day hunts and are all-inclusive once you reach base camp. 

  • The cost for these hunts is $5,200.00 for 2x1 and $6,2000.00 for 1x1. All hunts are in US Dollars.

All food, and water, shelter, cooking equipment, aircraft to and from the field and all fuel required will be provided. Anything required to conduct the contracted hunt will be provided minus personal gear and weapons of the hunter.

The hunter will provide: All personal gear and clothing. A weapon of choice (30 caliber or larger preferred) and all bullets, arrows, etc as well as their own license and tags for the species to be hunted. Any camera gear and film. Any alcohol will be the responsibility of the client.
