We hunt trophy Alaska Barren Ground Caribou in the Alaskan Range near the shadows of Denali National Park. The Alaskan Barren Ground species is the largest body sizes and antler sizes of all caribou species in the world. The wide open rolling hills of tundra surrounding the Alaska Range continue to produce tremendous Caribou bulls. We target bands of bachelor bulls of a resident nomadic herd as they transition from sub-alpine summer range to the valley floor where they will prepare for the rut and spend the winter. Bulls may be in velvet or hard-horned depends on the dates. Our season runs from August 10th - September 30 simultaneous to our other hunts which can allow for multi-species combination hunts. Typically, bulls harvested with us are 300 inches to 350 inches with exceptional bulls in excess of 400 inches. Hunters need to be in good physical shape for a caribou hunt, as walking in the brush and marsh areas can be very physically demanding. Hunting method is spot and stalk with significant time spent glassing. We utilize comfortable tent-style camp drop camps (Arctic Oven tents) with accessed by airplane. We will provide a gear list to ensure you come fully prepared with the proper equipment and expectations to make your hunt successful and enjoyable.
