Brooks Range Caribou

Post by BFD » Tue Sep 10, 2019 6:58 pm

Does anyone here have first-hand experience with caribou hunting in the Brooks Range? My hunting partner and I are kicking it around. We would be interested in a DIY drop camp, not float trip. The Brooks is a high priority for both of us.

Also, does anyone have anything good or bad to say about Arctic Air? They specialize on a herd of caribou to the west of the Brooks from the Delong Mountains to the Kotzebue Sound, which isn't exactly what I'm looking for, but might still be of interest if something better can't be found.

Post your experiences here, or email me at brent@iastate.edu if you prefer.

Thanks.

I've been there some time ago. Even though you're going for caribou, be prepared for grizzlies. They'll find you especially if you have any sweets, candies, chocolate etc. in your camp or pack. If you go on the tundra, best to carry a bunch of lead in your pockets or else the mosquitoes will carry you off.
No knowledge of Arctic Air. Good hunting.
