Alaska unguided caribou hunts provide a true remote arctic adventure. In addition to caribou, hunters regularly see moose, grizzly bear, black bear, wolves, dall sheep, wolverine, and musk ox. The vast and open tundra, virtually untouched by man adds to this true wilderness adventure. The key to a successful unguided hunt is to be dropped in front of the bulk of the moving herd. Because this outfitter is constantly moving hunters in and out of the area throughout the season, we have enjoyed a very high success rate over the years.

The camps are placed along the migration route, to ensure you of the highest success possible. Hunters can rest assured knowing they will be placed in areas that are productive. The average hunter will see 500 plus caribou on this hunt. Trophy class bulls are very common. The unique geographical features and pristine rivers provide spectacular scenery. You will be amazed at the “caribou trails” crossing the tundra – many of which have been used for hundreds of years.
