Consider making your Alaska caribou hunt a combo.
A combo hunt in Alaska is a true hunt of a lifetime! This hunt in particular can be a combined with moose, grizzly bear, brown bear, or a mountain goat. Most of these animals are at the top of most hunters lists, so why not get it all done in one place, with one outfitter, in one trip? This is a great way to be efficient with your time and your money.
On most hunts, you will rise early and typically glass from camp, eat a hot breakfast, and then hike to a high spot to glass all day or until you find a good stalkable animal. It will be stalking from there. After you tag your animal and take field photos, it is caped, quartered and butchered for packing to spot suitable for aircraft pick-up.
Be in shape!
As with any fair chase spot and stalk hunt, the better physical shape a hunter is the more enjoyable this type of hunt will be. No quality spot and stalk country is level, so hunter needs to be able to climb decent sized hills. That said, grizzly, moose, caribou and black bear hunts are not real strenuous for a hunter in reasonable physical shape.
