HUNTER: David Affleck
HUNT: Unguided Caribou Drop Hunt
CONSULTANT: Kyle Hanson | OUTDOORS INTERNATIONAL
August 25 through September 7, 2021
Wow was this the most epic thing I have ever done, and it’s not even close.
Stranded in the Brooks range for five extra days due to weather. No caribou whatsoever for nine days. Ran out of food and propane. Tagged out on the night of the 10th, three days after our scheduled extraction. Would not have had much food without the caribou. What was left after the grizzlies. No caribou migration had occurred as far as we could tell. We named the area we were hunting the kara-bou-lass national park.
We shot two nice bulls.
We shot the only two bulls we saw in 12 days and they were likely resident guys we just had not been able to get to because we were unable to cross any rivers due to flooding for 8-9 days
- How would you rate your trip overall? Overall, my trip was a great experience. The outfitter does absolutely the best they can do with the circumstances. Honestly I am glad I tagged out because I would never do it again. Being trapped without any possible way out is a horrible feeling. This is super super extreme x 10^6 power.

Our hunt was excellent.
We saw bucks every day along with all other sorts of wildlife. Mountain goats, bears, and foxes were common sights. Fishing and crabbing was special bonus. The food was excellent, the crew was amazing. Outdoors International did a great job of finding exactly what we were looking for.
What an amazing experience!
The hunting lodge was out of this world!, Rooms, food and the scenery were all A+. Our guide was exceptional and had us on Shiras moose all five days. We saw over 30 total with at least 10 bulls. They had a plan for everything including taxidermy and game processing.
