Alaska Caribou Drop Hunt
We think this is the best remote hunt available ANYWHERE for the DIY hunter! An Alaska caribou drop hunt is a true remote Arctic adventure for experienced hunters looking for a DIY hunting experience.
- Remote, fly-in, DIY caribou hunting at an affordable price!
- The key to a successful unguided caribou hunting is to be dropped in front of the bulk of the moving herd. The transporter will do their best to accommodate this.
- Since this is a fly-in DIY caribou hunt, you can either provide all of the gear and food (most hunters ship it up ahead of time), or the outfitter will rent you the equipment you need and sell you the food you will take.Physical condition is the key, so be in good shape.
- Fully guided caribou hunts are also available, and should be seriously considered if you aren’t in shape or an experienced hunter.

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.
