Caribou Hunting Northern Brooks Range

Every year, multiple trophy Caribou Bulls are harvested in the Northern Brooks Range. Whether this is your first Caribou hunt or your 15th, you are sure to experience the hunt of a lifetime in the Northern Brooks Range. Your hunt with Arrowhead Outfitters begins approximately 55 miles South of Deadhorse, AK; where we position our base camp. Hunters are encouraged to arrive the night before to meet with the Arrowhead team and discuss the plans for departure the following day. Once you arrive to base camp, your experience truly begins. Our float planes are located just a short drive from camp and our team will help you get your gear ready and also bring your vehicle back for safe keeping after your departure.

Prior to departure, our team will focus on your safety and preparations for the highest likelihood of success. Additional tags for wolf and wolverine may be purchased and harvested with no additional fee from Arrowhead Outfitters for these specific species. Many clients also bring collapsible fishing equipment to take advantage of the lakes and streams that run through the vast landscape of the tundra. Some even bring a small rimfire rifle for a lunch of freshly harvested ptarmigan.

While we encourage our clients to plan for at least a 10 day field stay, many have found success after just a few days of pursuit. Once your harvest is complete, early extraction may be possible when weather and scheduling permit, so you can continue on to the next leg of your adventure. Even though you are here to hunt, you will find that the landscape, great company, and abundance of nature will leave you with memories that last a lifetime.

The cost of your service includes transport of you and your gear from the departure lake to the field location. We will extract you, your gear, harvested game and antlers. WITH NO HIDDEN TROPHY FEES!

ITINERARY

Our fly-out Caribou hunts are conducted from our base camp, located at MP 366.5 of the Dalton Highway (approx. 445 miles North of Fairbanks and 50 miles South of Prudhoe Bay). The drive is stunning and the road is very well maintained.

Hunters flying in from other states generally fly commercially to Fairbanks. They then rent a vehicle, Iridium Satellite texting device, purchase their food, supplies, license/big game locking tag and lastly drive to our base camp. There are no stores to purchase food and supplies after you leave Fairbanks, so you need to get everything needed before you depart. Although, fuel can be purchased in Cold Foot, which is a small community and truck stop at MP 175/Dalton Highway. It is also a great place to get an excellent hot meal before you journey on. If you don’t want to make the straight ten hour drive from Fairbanks to our camp, we recommend staying in Wiseman, Alaska; a short 14 miles north of Cold Foot, along Dalton Highway. Wiseman is a very quaint and picturesque mining and trapping community, situated along the Koyukuk River. The town has two excellent Bed and Bed and Breakfast’s. These include the Boreal Lodge and the Arctic Getaway. Be sure and make your reservations well in advance of your trip if you wish to stay there.

Boreal Lodge

Arctic Getaway

We ask our hunters to be at our camp and ready for orientation by 8:00 AM the day of their scheduled flight. Hunters must advise us if they will be arriving later. Many allow extra time and arrive at our camp the night before their fly-out date. The day of your hunt, all hunters take part in a 30 minute orientation. During which, we check your license documentation, go over communications, transport of game meat, leave no trace camping and other important information. Before you depart camp, you must make sure you have your field gear including: food, supplies, hunting and camp equipment. All must be organized and packed according to Arrowhead Outfitters LLC’s size and weight limits. Each person’s belongings will be weighed to verify they are no more than 50 lbs. each.

When it’s time to depart for your hunt, you will drive your vehicle one mile north of our camp to Desiree’ Lake. From here, you will depart and return after your hunt. After you leave, our crew will drive your vehicle back to our base camp, where it will remain “safe and secure” until your return. If you need to re-fuel for the trip back to Fairbanks, you must drive 50 miles north of camp to Prudhoe Bay. Here, there are also hotels, hot showers and food service.
