General Information for All Self-Guided Fly-out Hunts
Please Read Carefully!
Number of Hunters in Party: Unlimited, but typically 2-6.
Length of Stay:
Unlimited (the price remains the same no matter the length of your hunt), but typically: 5-7 Days (Caribou), 10-14 days (Moose) and 14 days or more (Sheep). For a combination package you should allow approximately 20 days. We highly recommended that hunters allow ample time for their hunt and allow for poor weather days on either end of their hunt. Weather in the Arctic can be unpredictable and we will not fly in unsafe conditions.
Weight Limitation: 70 lbs per person including camp equipment. Typically, in smaller aircraft, you’d be limited to 50 lbs! You will be flying in a small aircraft with strict weight limitations; due to this, we ask that you be mindful when preparing for your trip. Additionally, pack your gear, equipment and food in small, waterproof dry bags (not garbage bags), as these are much easier to transport in the plane. Items that exceed your weight limitations such as: suitcases, large duffle bags, hard gun cases, cases of soft drinks and other similar bulky/ heavy items that exceed our aircrafts carrying capacity can be transported for additional cost. Bear Spray is allowed, however, it is critical that you advise our crew and your pilot that you have it. It must be safely stored (for the safety of our passengers and pilot) in the float compartment until you arrive at your camp location.
Field Communication: There is limited to no cell phone coverage in most backcountry Alaska and no cell phone coverage after you depart Fairbanks. The only exception is in Prudhoe Bay, which has some cell phone coverage. Prior to your hunt, it is mandatory that you rent and bring an IRIDIUM Satellite Phone (do not rent another brand, as it will not work). These phones are your best means of communication with our base camp and are a life-savers if you have an emergency. IRIDUM satellite phones can be rented from a number of different sat phone rental companies locally or online. They are fairly economical with an average rental rate range from $50 to $90 per week.
Weather Conditions and Climate
Northern Brooks Range (July 1-September 3)
Southern Brooks Range (September 1-22)
Weather conditions are generally good, with temperatures ranging from lows of about 30 degrees to a highs of 65 degree Fahrenheit. In the later part of the season, on both sides of the range, be prepared because temperatures can drop to freezing.
Bugs: Black Flies and Mosquitoes are almost always prevalent in the Alaska backcountry and can be encountered during the spring, summer and fall. Although, dryer years are less buggy. We recommend hunters take ample supplies of bug spray, head nets, etc. toprotect themselves from these pesky critters.
