Here is a very small personal operation that the outfitter/guide and his partner only take a few select hunters each fall. 2016 season stayed the course with all 4 HCU hunters killing bulls in the 360 to 380 class. Thousands of caribou were seen and hundreds of bulls. One of the two hunters that had a grizzly tag scored on a nice bear. The other hunter missed a wolverine several times.

2015, all 5 hunters took home a bull grossing from 360 to 390 except one hunter that shot the wrong bull. Past years success has been 100 percent and the hunting just seems to get better every year.

HCU has worked with this outfitter/guide for over 15 years with a terrific record. He is willing to take a party of 2 hunters for $7,800 each for 6 hunting days guided 2×1. If a hunter really wants 1×1 the price is $9,000. This out tter will INCLUDE YOUR CHARTER FLIGHT PRICED AT $2,300 AND THE $800 FEE TO TRANSPORT YOUR CARIBOU BACK TO TOK. These guides do this because they love it and take enjoyment out of assisting hunters to ful ll their Alaskan dreams. He is also willing to let hunters take a grizzly on a $4,500 trophy fee and HCU has had several hunters take grizzlies on this hunt. This is a true Alaskan experience, where you will be spike camping on the tundra and hiking during the day with plenty of glassing. Hunters need appropriate gear and in decent physical condition.

This hunt takes place in late August or early September in Unit 20E where the limit on caribou is one bull per hunter. It is the 40 Mile Herd and according to the biologists is one of, if not, the healthiest herd in Alaska growing 8 percent per year. The state is also doing a very good job on wolf control, which has really enhanced the caribou herd.

Hunters fly to Fairbanks, rent a car to Tok for a 4 hour drive or book a round trip ight to Tok for about $380, license $85, caribou tag $325 and the option on a grizzly tag is $500. Next available is in 2019. Hunt CU64.
