  • If you’ve dreamed of a remote, fly-in, unguided, do-it-yourself adventure, at an affordable price – this is it! These Alaska unguided caribou hunts have no hidden costs. They include airport pickup/delivery, all food, tents, cots, camping equipment, transport of meat, capes and antlers back to Kotzebue. The Outfitters’ logistical support and coordination assures your unguided trip will go as planned from start to finish. These hunts are e a true remote arctic adventure.

    Northwest Alaska is home to the largest herd of Barren Ground Caribou, called the Western Arctic Herd. 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.

      I will start with the criticisms. As with almost every outfitter, this Alaska caribou hunting guide was a little bit tough to communicate with. This is understandable as he was in the field much of the time and I’m glad I had you to answer questions for me. With that being said, after just a bit of confusion upon our arrival at the Kotzebue airport, the outfitter picked us up and got us rolling on our trip. He is a very approachable, guy who is easy to talk to. This made the prior frustrations seem insignificant.

      It was a good hunt, but the guide should carry a gun for protection. Lots of bears. I couldn’t understand that. It also seemed like they had a bad relationship with the Taxidermist.
