This hunt is conducted in the shadows of mount McKinley just outside of Denali National Park in classic barren ground caribou country. This area has produced many large double shovel caribou through the years. Round out your Alaskan hunting experience by adding a caribou to your moose, grizzly or sheep hunt.

Our Caribou hunts are only available in combination hunts with other species and or on a trophy fee basis. Moose, grizzly bear, dall sheep and black bear are all available in the same season. 

Caribou 2020

2020 Season Update:

We were 100% successful in 2020 on caribou in taking four bulls. We still have a limited number of good caribou bulls so we only take four to six each season, mostly on a trophy fee basis.

Our caribou herd is continuing to grow and we took very nice bulls in 2020, 2019, 2018, 2017, 2016, 2015 and 2014, four of which scored in the Boone & Crocket record book. Caribou Hunter success rate in 2020, 2019, 2018, 2017, 2016, 2015, 2014 and 2013 was 100%.
