A trip to Alaska's Brooks Range is the trip of a lifetime. You’ll see herds of caribou migrating like they have for thousands of years. If you feel comfortable you can take a outfitted semi-guided Caribou Hunt for the largest member of the caribou family, the barren ground caribou. Grizzly bear are often seen splashing after salmon in the river or foraging for berries on the tundra. Moose and other wildlife, including black bears, wolverine, and wolves are seen not far from camp often. He has been hunting in this area for over 40 years and guiding for over 20 years. His son’s adult sons assist with running the camp and guiding. They have both grown up hunting in the area and pride themselves with providing you a hunt of a life time. The enormous size of the big game animals has much to do with their location so far north they must have hung bulk to withstand the long cold winter.

 

The camp is located above the Arctic Circle, in the Squirrel River Valley of the western Brooks Range. Clients fly into the Inupiaq village of Kotzebue where they board small bush planes for the 80 mile trip to the hunting area. Base camps consist of comfortable free standing Hansen Weatherport tents with cots and heaters, including a shower tent. The main tent is a cooking area and gathering point for discussing the days hunt. Cooking is provided by the staff using a modern 4 burner gas stove with oven. Transportation in camp is by foot, and Kawasaki 4 wheel drive vehicles with trailers used for hauling game and supplies.

GUIDE PACKAGES

 

Caribou:

 

We hunt the Western Arctic caribou herd which has over 500,000 animals and is the largest in Alaska. We use the spot and stalk method of hunting, which is a very exciting and productive method. A typical day starts with a big, hot breakfast in the cook tent. After eating, the day starts with glassing for caribou. Often small herds even wander through camp, if we don’t see what we like there we hop on the Kawasaki 4 wheelers and head out. We have a 90% success on caribou hunts. Approximate hunt dates are 9/1-10/10

 

Moose:

 

Our moose hunts take place in many spruce thickets around camp. We use spot and stalk methods some of the time, but our most productive and exciting method of hunting moose is calling them. Since we hunt during “the rut”, bull moose are very receptive to calling. There is nothing quite like hearing a 1200 lbs bull moose charging right at you in heavy timber! Over the years, we’ve maintained a very high success rate of 95% on our moose hunts. The deadline for permit draw is December 06th booking for next year. The approximate hunt dates are 9/1-9/20

 

Grizzly Bear:

 

Hunting for Grizzly bear above the Arctic Circle is an experience you’ll never forget. We use spot and stalk methods of hunting. And most years we set up a separate camp for bear hunting. It is downstream from our main camp as bears are preparing for hibernation and is both safer and easier to spot them there. The deadline for permit draw is December 06th booking for next year. The Approximate hunt dates are 9/1-10/10
