This hunt takes place North of the Arctic Cirlce and is timed to coincide with the Caribou’s migration. There is the potential for the hunter to see hundreds of Caribou and it is a superb way to hunt covering vast swathes of ground from the speed and comfort of an airboat. The local Outfitter that we use for our Caribou hunts has 14 years experience hunting this area. His knowledge and skills in predicting the movements and migration of the Caribou cannot be matched by anyone else in Alaska.
The camp is very comfortable with Arctic tents and camp beds, the food is excellent and the team have never come across a more prepared or well equipped outfitter anywhere in the World. For those with a family this is great trip, younger hunters are actively encouraged on this hunt and although a certain degree of fitness is advised, due to the great knowledge our outfitter has of the region, there can be good opportunites to take Caribou fairly close to
shore which can be ideal for younger or older hunters.

The area you will be hunting will consist mainly of the Ivishak River drainage and the Echooka River drainage. The terrain consists mostly of treeless, boggy marsh, and tundra covered flats. It is generally low-profile, rolling terrain with some gradually sloping hills reaching up to 800 feet in elevation.
The river bottoms can be brush-choked with willows, but generally visibility is extensive. This region has numerous lakes and the ground has been compared to walking on a lumpy waterbed. In addition to the herds of Caribou, there are over 200 species of birds, including geese, swans, seagulls, ducks and eagles.
Other indigenous wildlife includes several species of fox, ground squirrels, grizzly bears, musk ox, wolves, wolverines and arctic hares.
Hunting options include occasional airboat trips on the river looking for migrating herds of Caribou, drop off hunts in known migration paths or just walking right out of camp. All are productive approaches. Your lastday will consist of packing and cleaning up, and will culminate with an airboat ride back to Pump Station 2 boat launch where your hunt ends.
This is an activehunt with the emphasis on Caribou, however there are frequently opportunitiesto harvest ptarmigan, and occasional wolf sightings. After Caribou tag(s) have been filled or if hunting action is slow, there is the opportunity to enjoy excellent fishing for Arctic Grayling, Dolly Varden trout, and Arctic Char. Please be sure to have all appropriate tags and licenses forthe species you wish to pursue.
