Our fly-out, trophy caribou hunts are conducted from Grayling Lake at mile marker 150 of the Dalton Highway (approx. 30 miles south of Cold Foot). Prior to the hunt, hunters will meet as at our base camp, which is located at mile marker 159.5 of the Dalton Highway (approx. 25 miles S of Cold Foot) and a short 4 ½ hour drive on well-maintained roads, from Fairbanks, north on the Dalton Highway.
There are no stores for the purchase of food and supplies after you leave Fairbanks so please come prepared. Fuel, on the other hand, can be purchased seasonally at Yukon River Camp and 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 year-round.
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 hunters allow extra time so that they arrive at our camp the night before their fly-out date. The day of your hunt, all hunters take part in a thirty-minute orientation with us. During the orientation we check your license documentation, go over communications, transport of game meat, leave no trace camping, and other important information. Before you depart you must make sure that you have your gear including food, supplies, hunting equipment and camp equipment 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 is time for your departure, from our base camp, you will drive five miles north to Grayling Lake where you will board one of our Maule float planes and depart for you hunt. After you depart, 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 25 miles north of camp to Cold foot. Here, there are also hotels, hot showers and food service.
