Unguided caribou hunts in Northwest Alaska based out of Kotzebue.
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.
*As a bonus on these unguided caribou hunts, you can add wolf hunting for no additional charge! The ptarmigan hunting can be incredible (bring a shotgun), and char and grayling fishing is also available. Get more information by filling out this form.
