AA2, AA4 – Alaska Fly-In, Arctic Grizzly, Caribou Combo Hunt with Alaska Wilderness Charters and Guiding
Alaska Fly-In, Arctic Grizzly, Caribou Combo Hunt
This is a great hunt to "combo" an Arctic grizzly bear hunt with caribou!
These are spot and stalk, fair chase hunts in Alaska. Days will be spent glassing mountain sides for arctic grizzly bears feeding on blueberries, roaming the tundra, feeding on a recent moose or caribou carcass, or feeding on late run salmon in rivers. This is a great hunt to “combo” with a trophy caribou!
Hunts conducted in the Kotzebue area are for “Arctic” grizzly bears. These hunts are conducted north of the Arctic Circle in the fall season. The bears in this region have a wide color variation, with light blonde being the predominant color. Bears in this area typically range from 6.5 to a little over 9 feet.
*Grizzly tags in this area are issued on a permit basis.
This outfitter also offers an unguided caribou option, but availability is extremely limited.

Also, don’t forget the fishing. Approximately 95% of the camps end up on a river or stream. This means that there is WORLD CLASS Arctic char and grayling fishing.
For people wishing to take meat home with them, wet lock boxes can be purchased from the Outfitter for $15 each. Boxes can be checked on as luggage. Boxes must not be over 50 pounds. Excess baggage fees will be charged by the airlines for additional pieces of checked baggage on Alaska Airlines. Remember it is the hunter’s responsibility to see the meat is properly donated or boxed for your flight home. Deboning meat is not permitted by airport regulation at the airport facility. Fee for boxing game meat is $50 per box, plus the box fee, and is only done on a time available basis.
For those of you wishing to donate meat: you must complete a transfer of possession form (the Outfitter has them). Meat can be donated to local citizens or to the food bank. Partially butchered quarters of meat are not accepted for donation.
You will fly to Anchorage, AK (ANC), then catch a flight to Kotzebue, where your Outfitter will meet you to the airport. It is important when booking your commercial airline tickets to and from Kotzebue that you arrive on ALASKA AIRLINES FLIGHT #151 on the day you are scheduled to go into the field. This will put you in Kotzebue at approximately 8am. Arriving later in the day may not allow enough time to fly you out to the field. This will allow us the most time to get you out to your hunting area. At times we must wait for the weather to clear
or frost or snow to melt off the wings before we can start flying. If such conditions do exist, be patient.
We recommend departing on flight #152 or #153 back to Anchorage on the day after you are scheduled to be extracted from the field. This flight departs Kotzebue at 7:50pm.
TIP: Book “flexible” return flights and we HIGHLY recommend trip insurance! *Weather is a variable that no one can control. Weather conditions may prevent us from being able to fly. Such instances are rare, but can occur.
This outfitter will use either a float plane or a plane with bush wheels to get you into the field. Their schedule and caribou movement depicts which plane will be used.
