What about Bears?
We have never had any issues with bears, You will see bears in the distance but I can assure you that they are as affraid of you as you are of them. We have never had bears come into camp either even with meat in camp.
Can I add a tent to our drop Camp?

To book a hunt we need the following information
If I harvest a Caribou early will you pick up my meat early?
Should I rent or buy a satelite phone?
It is not recommended,
Do I need a permit to carry a sidearm?
No you do not and we do recommend that you have a sidearm while you hunt. Though bears have never been an issue it does not mean its not a possiblilty.
What Airport do I fly into?
For Caribou you will fly into Prudhoe Bay Alaska
Can I harvest Ptarmigan?
Sure! It is Ptarmigan season up here 10 August - 15 June, and they are generally everywhere.
But, we should warn you that shooting at the birds will likely scare away the caribou.
Soooooo… it’s up to you – after all, caribou are the main reason for your visit and we don’t want you to come away with just a handful of feathers and no antlers! Or, bear the scorn of your fellow hunters for scaring the game away.
How do I transport my rifle?
You will want to bring your rifles in hard cases on the airlines to and from Prudehoe Bay or Cold Foot.
However, when you get to our Boat Launch, you will be required to remove them from the hard cases and put them in your soft cases in an effort to save room on the airboat. HARD CASES WILL NOT BE LOADED ON THE BOAT TO GO OUT IN THE FIELD – BE SURE YOU BRING A SOFT CASE WITH YOU IN YOUR GEAR!
The hard cases and any items you bring with you that you won’t need in the field can remain in our locked storage containers until you return from your hunt.
We always like to make sure our hunters know this – as someone ALWAYS shows up and forgets to bring their soft case with them. Most hunters don’t want to travel with their rifles exposed, but space is tight – especially on the way back – and the hard cases just won’t fit.
Do you offer Fly in Hunts?
No we do not
Can I link Global Rescue with my InReach SOS
Yes you can,
If I don't rent a drop camp and bring my own what is my weight limit?
Our drop camp weighs around 100-125lbs total weight for a camp set up for 6. I you bring your own drop camp equipment you will need to stay 125lbs or below.
Can I stay longer than 8 days?
We operate on a set schedule if you want to stay longer than the scheduled 8 days there is a $1,000 fee and you esentially become a walk on. getting you out becomes space and time available and those coordinations are made on the ground with Hook.
When is the best time to hunt?
we start to see an increased number of Caribou around the end of the 1st week of August and they continue through the hunting Season. What we have seen in the past is that the bigger numbers tend to move through around the 2nd-4th week of August into September. Caribou are also starting to drop their velvet at the end of August and are typically hard horned by the 1st week of September.
Please explain the Walk-on hunts?
Our Walk-on hunts are space and time available hunts. They are $1,000 per person (No military discount will be applied to this hunt) When you arrive as a walk-on we will do the best we can to get you out as soon as possible but please understand we have scheduled clients coming in and going out so it may be the same day it may be longer.
