Please Read! Important Information!
June 18, 2018
Save $500 for non-resident and $1000 for residents on remaining 2018 north side fly our Caribou, Bear, Wolf, and Wolverine Hunts.
For the first time in years we have some limited Caribou openings for our North side fly out Caribou hunts. We blame the slight lack of bookings on fish and games hasty and not necessary decision of reducing the non-resident harvest from 2 Caribou to only 1 in one of the units we operate in. Enclosed please find a Letter explaining AFG method of counting caribou. Although A.O.I. and many other companies that conduct Caribou hunts disagree with there findings we still were forced to limit non-resident hunters in only a small portion of unit 26 to only harvest 1 Caribou. The rest of unit 26 we can harvest the usual 2 bulls. We have offered our clients the option to move them when they harvest the 1st bull with weather and time permitting to another location at no charge to harvest their 2nd caribou.
Enclosed please find a letter from Beth Lenert, Biologist for the Central Arctic Caribou Herd.
You will find the July 2017 counts and locations of the caribou counted. For those of you not familiar with the systems used by the Alaska Fish & Game; they locate collared cows and a few bulls and count the animals after a picture is taken of the herd, then the animals are counted. For over 20 years we have known that this is a poor way to count caribou numbers anywhere in the state simply because the caribou herds that do not have a collared caribou are missed. Furthermore, due to the state cutbacks, they are only allotted enough flying hours to count only collared animals. I have spoken to Beth for the last 3 years in great detail about all of the caribou we see approximately 2 weeks after their counting takes place in the area that we refer to as “The Foothills” of the North Slope. This area includes and is not limited to an area from the Saddle Rocket Hills, Peters, Schrader Lakes, to the East, all the way to Gunsight Mountain and Coleville River, to the west. This area of over 100 miles in length is not animal surveyed. We see scattered herds of between 25 to 500 throughout this entire area. We estimate that there are at least 5-7 thousand caribou in this one area that are never counted.
Their action in 2017 of restricting the Non-Residents Hunters to 1 Caribou saved less than 500 caribou total.
Due to Alaska Fish & Game’s season structure it is very difficult to get any regulation changed until the 3 year period is up for review, which is in 2020. Beth concurred with my ideas and agrees unless the herd “crashes” before 2020 that we will get the 2 bull caribou harvest back.
The current information we have shown is that the caribou herd is in good condition and the population increased from last year. We will continue to provide the same outstanding service and best hunting opportunity to our clients and continue to offer a move to another sub-unit to harvest an extra caribou if the client chooses and the caribou are in the area.
We have also reduced our price of our Caribou Hunts in 2018 by $500. to the price of $2995. And includes wolf and wolverine at no additional charge.
For our Resident Hunters, we offer a hunt for $2495. Resident Hunters can still harvest 2 caribou and additional Caribou added at an additional fee. Also, Grizzly bear and wolf. Wolverines can also be harvested after August 20th by both non-resident and residents.

Arrowhead Outfitters LLC was founded by Howard Tieden, its current Director of Operations and Chief Pilot in 1982. Howard was born and raised in Cambridge Minnesota where, as a young man, he honed his hunting and fishing skills. After graduating high school, he moved to Colorado where he worked as a government trapper and soon after founded Arrowhead Outfitters. He offered guided Elk, Mule Deer, Antelope, Bear and Cougar hunts. In 1994, after several years of visiting Texas and discovering its abundant Wild Boar, Howard began offering Texas Wild Boar, coyote and bobcat hunts. With his passion for the outdoors and the sports of hunting and fishing, it was only natural that he would be drawn to Alaska.
In 1994 Howard made his first road trip to “the great state” of Alaska. There, he spent the majority of his time in the Brooks Range, bow hunting caribou and fishing. He repeated his journey to Alaska every year until he moved there in 1999; Howard discovered a lifetime dream. In Alaska, he honed his skills as a “bush pilot”, working as a Flying Registered Assistant Guide. In 2006, Arrowhead Outfitters LLC was the first to offer fly-in Winter Pike Spear Fishing adventures from his home base in Wasilla, Alaska. In the early years, he spent every fall flying and hunting with his family in the Brooks Range, Alaska. In 2008, Arrowhead Outfitters LLC, became a State of Alaska registered Big Game Transporter; we offered fly-in hunting and fishing adventures in South-Central and Northern Alaska to the general public.
We currently fly 2 high performance aircraft including a Maule M6, three passenger and a Maule M7, four passenger. Additionally, we employ three highly experienced bush pilots to provide you with extraordinary service to its customers.
As Director of Operations and Chief Pilot, Howard enjoys sharing his vast experience and passion of the outdoors. He hopes to help others discover their dreams of adventure.
