Unguided caribou hunts for trophy caribou in AlaskaUnguided caribou hunts in Northwest Alaska based out of Kotzebue.

Northwest Alaska is home to the largest herd of Barren Ground Caribou, called the Western Arctic Herd, with a population of 500,000+ animals. 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.

*This is an Alaska ARCTIC hunt – it can be warm, but it can also be EXTREMELY COLD. A Sleeping bag that is rated for +20* – is NOT enough. You need to be prepared with a bag that is rated for a minimum of -20*’s – but prefer a -30. You can always take it off – but sometimes there’s just not enough layers to put on when it’s really cold.
