THE CARIBOU ARE BACK! We are pleased to announce that we are offering Caribou Hunts once again in September 2018!
We elected to stop our September Caribou Hunts, on the South Side of the Brooks Range, approximately five (5) years ago due to the Caribou shift in migration patterns. We have closely monitored this activity for the last three (3) years and the numbers have been significantly increasing. My 15 years of successful outfitting experience leads me to believe this is one of the best places to offer a combo Caribou / Moose Hunt.
Hunters can choose a two (2) Bull Caribou hunt for $3,995.00 or a two (2) Bull Caribou / 1 Moose Combo Hunt for $9,995.00. Generally, the bull caribou this time of the year are fully polished (if you want a bull in velvet you need to hunt the 1st and 2nd week in August on our Northern Brooks Range Hunt). These hunts still include the harvest of a Bear (Black only for Non-residents) and Wolf at no additional charge. Many of our past clients have been waiting for this opportunity to be offered again. Hunts are limited and will be offered on a first come, first served basis. Don’t delay! Book today!

Our fly-out Caribou moose hunts are conducted from Grayling Lake at mile marker 150 of the Dalton Highway (approx. 30 miles south of Cold Foot). Prior to the hunt, hunters will meet as at our base camp, which is located at mile marker 159.5 of the Dalton Highway (approx. 25 miles S of Cold Foot) and a short 4 ½ hour drive on well-maintained roads, from Fairbanks, north on the Dalton Highway.
There are no stores for the purchase of food and supplies after you leave Fairbanks so please come prepared. Fuel, on the other hand, can be purchased seasonally at Yukon River Camp and Cold Foot which is a small community and truck stop at MP 175/Dalton Highway, it is also a great place to get an excellent hot meal year-round.
We ask our hunters to be at our camp and ready to fly-out by 8:00 AM the day of their scheduled flight. Hunters must advise us if they will be arriving later. Many hunters allow extra time so that they arrive at our camp the night before their fly-out date. The day of your hunt, all hunters take part in a thirty-minute orientation with us. During the orientation we check your license documentation, go over communications, transport of game meat, leave no trace camping, and other important information. Before you depart you must make sure that you have your gear including food, supplies, hunting equipment and camp equipment organized and packed according to Arrowhead Outfitters LLC’s size and weight limits. Each person’s items will be weighed to make sure they are in within their allowed (per person) weight limit of 70 lbs.
When it is time for your departure, from our base camp, you will drive five miles north to Grayling Lake where you will board one of our Maule float planes and depart for you hunt. After you depart, our crew will drive your vehicle back to our base camp, where it will remain “safe and secure” until your return.
If you need to re-fuel for the trip back to Fairbanks, you must drive 25 miles north of camp to Cold foot. Here, there are also hotels, hot showers and food service.
When it’s time to depart for your hunt, you will drive your vehicle one mile north of our camp to Desiree’ Lake. From here, you will depart and return after your hunt. After you leave, our crew will drive your vehicle back to our base camp, where it will remain “safe and secure” until your return. If you need to re-fuel for the trip back to Fairbanks, you must drive 50 miles north of camp to Prudhoe Bay. Here, there are also hotels, hot showers and food service.
