Excellent caribou hunt from start to finish. Life long friends and memories will forever be remembered!
Overall it was an awesome experience and we are already planning our return trip! Oh, and did I mention the fishing was great? My only regret is that I got nervous at the end and shot a small bull and then in the last few hours of the hunt my son-in-law shot a really great bull and he was accompanied by another big bull that just danced around out on the tundra after the other bull was down…I guess he knew I was tagged out. Overall it was an awesome experience and we are already planning our return trip! Oh, and did I mention the fishing was great? We caught lots of grayling and lake trout to top it all off.
The transporters were awesome! They took care of making sure we had what we needed and made sure we were taken care of before and after our caribou hunt! They placed us in a perfect spot for our hunt! It was beautiful and had what we were after…. caribou! We both killed caribou within a mile of our camp! it was an amazing experience, that I will for sure do again! I plan on using them again in a couple of years when I take my caribou hunt!
Antler configuration can vary greatly between the subspecies of caribou. While woodland caribou bulls of eastern Canada typically have smaller racks, the Quebec-Labrador bulls can grow significantly larger and wider. Central barren ground bulls are perhaps the most diverse in configuration and can grow to be very high and wide. Mountain caribou are typically the most massive, with trophy-class specimens boasting the largest circumference measurements of all six subspecies.
What’s down below separates an average bull from a great bull. You’re typically looking for double shovels, double bez, long and wide main beams, good mass, double backscratchers, symmetry, and more than two points at the top. Palmated points on top are best. Learn more…
If so you’re not alone, and although we suggest an unguided drop hunt for caribou, we do have some limited float options as well.
Guaranteed tags, lots of grizzly bears and amazing caribou hunting, most affordable Alaska float hunt for grizzly and caribou that we know of and best of all it is truly a remote wilderness adventure of a lifetime! Last year, on just three hunts, they saw 29 grizzly bears and thousands of caribou. The best thing about this hunt is compared to most, it is very affordable, with a little planning, you can make your Alaska dream combo hunt come true.
Float a river surrounded by majestic mountains up to 4,500 ft. at the start of your hunt and ending up into rolling hills halfway through your 60 mile float. This is a true wilderness hunt in the 3.5 million acre National Petroleum reserve. So needless to say, hunting pressure is very, very limited. The terrain in this area is relatively good for foot travel, with occasional areas of tussocks and swamp.
You can expect to see from 10 to 10,000 caribou daily, with the norm being 20-200. Wolves are relatively common, but you have to be quick and a good shot as they are an elusive animal. The hunt will begin with a two hour flight across the Brooks Range and the Gates of the Arctic National Park. Your fly in day will be spent getting rafts and equipment ready and checking the zero on your weapons. Be prepared to spend a lot of time glassing for bears feeding on the hillsides and for caribou coming through the passes.
Here’s the list of personal gear we suggest you bring along. Obviously, as an experienced hunter, you have a list of things you like to carry, but we’ve been taking people out into the field here in Alaska for over 30 years and there may be a few things in this list you wouldn’t think about bringing along on your hunt.
In addition to your normal camp gear (i.e. camp stove, tent, cots, propane, etc) this is a suggested personal gear list, therefore, it may not be all inclusive and is subject to change.
REMINDER: EACH HUNTER IS LIMITED TO 70 LBS. OF GEAR (does not usually include the weight of your rifle)
Our livelihood depends on you sending us good hunting reports. So, we want to prepare you for your hunt before you go. Our best advice: Practice your shooting and get in shape!
