Hunt Description

All of us at Arrowhead Outfitters invite you to join us for an exclusive, exhilarating, fun and affordable fly-out self-guided trophy Dall Sheep hunt in the Northern Brooks Range. Alaska’s great Arctic tundra on the northern side of the majestic Brooks Range Mountains is beautiful and rich with wildlife. Join Arrowhead Outfitters LLC, the first and only air taxi company flying float equipped aircraft based on the northern side of the Brooks Range on a self-guided Dall Sheep hunt of a lifetime.

Hunting Alaska’s stunning and pristine Brooks Range Mountains is an extraordinary experience and opportunity. Picture yourself stalking trophy Dall Sheep in this remote and nearly, un-hunted mountainous paradise. Each year, rams over 40” are harvested. On your adventure, you will witness the beauty and wonder of the Arctic tundra and will likely see other wildlife including: Grizzly Bear, Caribou, Musk Ox, Wolves, Fox, Wolverine, Ptarmigan and additional bird species. You will be experiencing a sportsman’s paradise!

Be informed when choosing your air taxi service; many other services fly larger aircraft that repeatedly use the same landing locations. These landing strips are generally far from your hunting destination and neighbor many other camps. On the other hand, we fly a 3 Passenger, M-6 and M-7 Maule on floats; we have the capability to deliver you and your equipment to strategic hunting locations, considerably closer to the sheep, in areas with minimal to no hunting pressure.

The cost of your hunt includes the flight to and from the drop off hunting location and transport of your meat and horns. There are no hidden fees!

Type of Hunting

Hunting is primarily spot and stalk with rifle or bow, over mountainous terrain and within grassy mountain basins. Hunting Dall Sheep in the Brooks Range mountains is challenging; you need to be prepared to do a significant amount of strenuous hiking and therefore, should physically prepare for your hunt. The more fit you are, the more enjoyable your hunt will be.

The fly-in Alaska hunting trip you have dreamed of is simply a phone call away. Call us today for available dates, pricing and details to book your trip.

Itinerary

Arrival & Departure Information

Our fly-out Northern Brooks Range Dall sheep hunts are conducted from our base camp, located at MP 366.5 of the Dalton Highway (approx. 445 miles North of Fairbanks and 50 miles South of Prudhoe Bay). The drive is stunning and the road is very well maintained.

Hunters flying in from other states generally fly commercially to Fairbanks. They then rent a vehicle, satellite phone, purchase their food, supplies, licenses and lastly drive to our base camp. There are no stores to purchase food and supplies after you leave Fairbanks, so you need to get everything needed before you depart. Although, fuel can be purchased in 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 before you journey on. If you don’t want to make the straight ten hour drive from Fairbanks to our camp, we recommend staying in Wiseman, Alaska; a short 14 miles north of Cold Foot, along Dalton Highway. Wiseman is a very quaint and picturesque mining and trapping community, situated along the Koyukuk River. The town has two excellent Bed and Bed and Breakfast’s. These include the Boreal Lodge and the Arctic Getaway. Be sure and make your reservations well in advance of your trip if you wish to stay there.

We ask our hunters to be at our camp and ready to fly-out by 10:00 AM the day of their scheduled flight. Hunters must advise us if they will be arriving later. Many allow extra time and arrive at our camp the night before their fly-out date. The day of your hunt, all hunters take part in a 30 minute orientation. During which, we check your license documentation, go over communications, transport of game meat, leave no trace camping and other important information. Before you depart camp, you must make sure you have your field gear including: food, supplies, hunting and camp equipment. All must be organized and packed according to Arrowhead Outfitters LLC’s size and weight limits. Each person’s belongings will be weighed to verify they are within their allowed (per person) weight limit of 70 lbs.

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.

General Info

General Information for All Self-Guided Fly-out Hunts

Please Read Carefully!

Number of Hunters in Party: Unlimited, but typically 2-6.

Length of Stay

Unlimited (the price remains the same no matter the length of your hunt), but typically: 5-7 Days (Caribou), 10-14 days (Moose) and 14 days or more (Sheep). For a combination package you should allow approximately 20 days. We highly recommended that hunters allow ample time for their hunt and allow for poor weather days on either end of their hunt. Weather in the Arctic can be unpredictable and we will not fly in unsafe conditions.

Weight Limitation:

70 lbs. per person including camp equipment. Typically, in smaller aircraft, you’d be limited to 50 lbs! You will be flying in a small aircraft with strict weight limitations; due to this, we ask that you be mindful when preparing for your trip. Additionally, pack your gear, equipment and food in small, waterproof dry bags (not garbage bags), as these are much easier to transport in the plane. Items that exceed your weight limitations such as: suitcases, large duffle bags, hard gun cases, cases of soft drinks and other similar bulky/ heavy items that exceed our aircrafts carrying capacity can be transported for additional cost. Bear Spray is allowed, however, it is critical that you advise our crew and your pilot that you have it. It must be safely stored (for the safety of our passengers and pilot) in the float compartment until you arrive at your camp location.

Field Communication: 

There is limited to no cell phone coverage in most backcountry Alaska and no cell phone coverage after you depart Fairbanks. The only exception is in Prudhoe Bay, which has some cell phone coverage. Prior to your hunt, it is mandatory that you rent and bring an IRIDIUM Satellite Phone (do not rent another brand, as it will not work). These phones are your best means of communication with our base camp and are a life-savers if you have an emergency. IRIDUM satellite phones can be rented from a number of different sat phone rental companies locally or online. They are fairly economical with an average rental rate range from $50 to $90 per week.

Weather Conditions and Climate

 Northern Brooks Range (07-01 through 09-03)

Southern Brooks Range (09-01 through 09-22)

The above dates have typically good conditions, with temperatures ranging from lows of about 30 degrees to a highs of 65 degree Fahrenheit. In the later part of the season, on both sides of the range, be prepared because temperatures can drop to freezing.

Bugs:

Black Flies and Mosquitoes are almost always prevalent in the Alaska backcountry and can be encountered during the spring, summer and fall. Although, dryer years are less buggy. We recommend hunters take ample supplies of bug spray, head nets, etc. to protect themselves from these pesky critters.
