These caribou are the Alaska Peninsula Herd and even though they constantly are on the move they are not considered migratory. Hunters are flown into spike camps, consisting of 6-man Cabela Guide tents with cots.

2021 his 12 hunters tagged 12 bulls, with 2 or 3 making the book.

2020 he had 15 hunters tag 13 bulls and a hunter crippled a bull. 2 bulls should make the book. 2019 caribou numbers were good and 11 of the 12 guided hunters tagged a bull. The unsuc- cessful hunter really did not like spike camp and opted to stay at the lodge to do some fishing.

6 day hunts guided 2×1 September 24 to 30 are $10,000 including lodging, meals and one caribou. Fall brown bear hunts take place on odd years, 2023 then 2025, and are $26,000 and a caribou can be added for $5,000.

Once the hunters are tagged out, they are flown back to the comfortable main lodge, where they can fish for silver salmon, char and Dolly Varden at $350 per day, spinning gear and equip- ment will be provided, but fly fishermen must bring their own gear.

Hunters fly into Anchorage and then to Sand Point, approximately $1,000 round trip, where they are met and flown into camp at the outfitters expense. There is a $100 freight charge to fly ant- lers and cape from Sand Point to Anchorage and the meat is donated to the natives.
