Barren Ground Caribou Hunts
We hunt trophy Alaska Barren Ground Caribou in the south Brooks Range near the Gates of the Arctic National Park and Preserve. Within Alaska, there are 31 individual caribou herds, some resident herds in small areas, while other large herds migrate vast distances. The two largest Alaska caribou herds are the Western herd and Porcupine herd, which move across the Arctic plains from the ice fields in August through the Brooks Range in September. Caribou have been migrating here for centuries! This area is one of North America’s most game rich areas. Our Caribou camps reside south of Brooks Range where resident caribou herds reside. Our hunt areas provide a great opportunity for hunters to collect multiple species: Caribou, Moose, Grizzly bear, and Black bear. If you’re looking for a great hunt to collect a really nice trophy Caribou bull and have a super time, you won’t find a better hunting area anywhere. This area is a one Caribou bull limit. You may upgrade to Moose, Grizzly bear, and Black bear. Wolves may be taken for no trophy fee. These hunts have been an extremely high success rate.
$7,000 per person based on 2X1 guide service; 7-days.
September 5 - 25.
Hunt includes: Professional guide service (2X1), accommodations (Arctic Oven and/or Wall tents), all meals, use of equipment, transportation in the field, trophy field preparation, and field care of trophy game meat.
Travel: Arrival/departure point is Fairbanks, Alaska, where you are met at the airport. Clients are responsible for commercial air travel to/from Fairbanks and air charter service to/from base camp. We suggest you arrive 2-3 days prior to your hunt commencing, so you can purchase Alaska hunting license, Caribou tags, harvest tickets (no fee for permits), any additional hunting gear or personal items you may need. Air charter fee is determined by type of aircraft (Super Cub, Hellio Courier, Maule, Cessna 185, Cessna 206 or DeHavilland Beaver) and length of flight. Air charter flights have passenger and weight restrictions. We assist clients in coordinating air charter service to/from base camp. Client may select to take a rental vehicle from Fairbanks to/from Prospect Creek Airport (180 miles, 5 hour drive north on James Dalton Highway) with follow-on air charter service to/from base camp. You may not hunt on the same-day-airborne. For departure schedule, recommend 1-2 days in Fairbanks for taxidermy trophy care, processing/shipping trophy game meat or expediting trophy from Alaska to taxidermist of your choice. We recommend purchasing airline tickets with flexible change policies in the event of inclement weather or unforeseen circumstances that may affect your airline travel.
