    hello,hunting caribou is a different ball game.since I think u mean in North America.Canada (nf,qb,ont.,Manitoba,etc.)require a guide by Canadian rules for aliens.I hunted northwest terr. in 1999=2001.outfitter,guide was cheaper there for 8day hunt than anywhere else@ that time.greatest hunts I've been on.anyway that leaves Alaska where u can DIY.but u need air trans.to best areas &herds.I would bet u can't do it for less than 6k+ thede days.good luck! dcaribouski.

    Went in 2011 NOT unguided. It was expensive, but worth the cost. The logistics are amazing. If it moves in or out of camp it comes in by plane,

    See write-up: My Caribou Hunt (not long range)

    Good luck

    Western Arctic Herd out of Kotzebue Alaska, Dalton Highway archery hunt near Prudhoe Bay Alaska, 40 Mile Herd out of Fairbanks or Tok Alaska. Be prepared to pay for a flight to get into the best areas. From personal experience, if it can be reached by for or 4 wheels, it'll be crowded. Flying in is your best choice for an unbelievable hunt.

    Just this last September we floated the Sag River, it took us out about 2 miles and the rest we hiked in. On the way back k we floated out the whole way, we packed in our raft upstream with us. Didn't get a caribou, but the best hunt I have been on.

    When trying to decide which trip to take in Quebec, we came to the same conclusion. If you can drive to a location so can others. So what you have is a road hunt with dozens of other people competing for the same animals. That's why we chose to fly to a remote camp.

    Good luck

    i have hunted caribou in alaska a few times up the haul road then put in a jet boat just past pump station #2 around 45 miles south of dead horse. run up the sag then get into the ivishak then run it a few miles to set up a camp. the from base camp take the boat out each day looking for caribou. the haul road has a no rifle hunting which is 5 miles on each side of the road . archery i think is ok just a 1/4 mile from the road but i would check that to be sure. we hit it the last week of aug to the 1st week of sept. this river goes up and down very fast there so jet boating it can be very tricky from 1 yr to the next. there is a fly out service on the north slope [ happy valley i think ] and this is always a good option . we have always done well up there but some yrs we had to really work at it
    hope this helps
