Who has gone on an Alaskan Caribou drop camp/fly in hunt.

Who has paid to be outfitted or flown in for a Caribou hunt in Alaska? Seems like there are a ton of guides that will do this. Basically outfit the gear or fly you in and the hunting is on you. Please share people that were good and people to avoid and your experience. Seems like a somewhat affordable way to enjoy Alaska and Caribou.
Thanks

    Try Talon Air Service.

    FYI, dont go when they are rutting. You by law have to salvage all the meat and it IS in-edible. At least on the bulls.

    Michael, Talon hunts the mulchatna and I think that is resident only this year. That herd is way down might want to check and see what they are doing now for success. Sure easy access from the airport though.

    Send me a message and I will help you get on some caribou.

    What could be a sweeter hunt? Unless you toss in a BIG moose along with it....

    Well you got me on that one! It use to be 5 caribou limit for residents and 2 for non-residents. It has been quite a few years since the last time I was involved in the Illiamna caribou.

    Sorry bout that!
