ALASKA CARIBOU HUNTS:
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
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
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

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
*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.
