Bring your own gear or rent camping gear and food from the transporter.
Above the Arctic Circle is no place to skimp on gear! In addition to knowing what hunters will need while in the field, it makes it less expensive to travel on commercial flights. In 35+ years of providing service to their hunters, along with their own Alaska experiences, this outfitter has put together a gear list that provides hunters with not only comfort, but the NECESSITIES of being out in what can be a very harsh and unforgiving environment.
Options for Meat Care
The village does not allow the transporter to store meat at their facility. Nor does Kotzebue have meat processing facilities to accommodate hunters. However, the Hotel in Kotzebue has a 120 degree walk-in freezer. Our hunters often choose to freeze their meat there prior to departure back home.
Shipping Your Caribou Meat Back Home
You can purchase your meat boxes directly from the outfitter. Boxes can be checked as luggage.
Donating Meat to the Community
You can donate the meat from your Alaska caribou drop hunt to a family in the village. If you wish to use this option, you must complete a transfer of possession form. The transporter will assist you in this process.

We were in a great place, lots of bears, great fishing and it was a wonderful experience. We were very happy, well taken care of. The outfitter was timely, friendly, treated us like family and friends and had great gear. Very thorough and professional. We will go back and hunt with them again. It was a great Alaska adventure.

Robyn Keeney –
Overall, we loved the experience of hunting in the arctic circle, but there were a few things that could have been improved. We understand weather is unpredictable, and we were warned about that ahead of time, but a little more info about the decision-making process, and who might go into the field when, would have helped us understand and plan our time better.
Jim Rose –
