Barren-Ground Caribou

All of our Barren-Ground Caribou hunts are available as an add-on species on our dall sheep, moose, and grizzly bear hunts. Depending on the migration and movements of caribou herds it may be recommended to have a caribou tag in your pocket. The bag limit is one Caribou bull in our units per regulatory year.

Noatak national preserve

Our exclusive guide use concession in the Noatak National Preserve is home to some of the most remote country in Alaska. This untouched wilderness is home to the most spectacular views available to hunters.

We have secured this hunting area to provide our clients with the best opportunity to experience the true Alaska wilderness and take trophy animals.

However, the Federal Subsistence Board has closed the take of caribou on federal lands within the Noatak Preserve (unit 23) for the 2022 and 2023 seasons. The local advisory council has proposed a permanent closure to all non-resident caribou seasons in unit 23 beginning in 2024. Stay tuned for a final decision in late January 2024.

Your Own pilot

After you arrive in Kotzebue or Anchorage, you will continue your journey to a remote airstrip in our hunting area via a Cessna 207 air charter. From there, you will be in our care. We operate our own Piper Super Cub airplanes to make sure you are safely brought into spike camp to meet your guide. This will also allow you to move camps if needed and relocate with ease.
