You will be greeted by someone from our Staff at the Alaska Airlines Terminal - where they will get you and all your gear over to our Building, where we get you staged and readied for the field.
Generally speaking, the terminal itself is super small, so wait for your luggage, grab your stuff and come outside where they will be waiting with the Van and/or Truck for your arrival. They will be identified with our Shirts/Sweatshirts and hats ... not hard to miss!
The sweet thing about Alaska Department of Fish & Game is that you can purchase your Tags & Licensing right off the website!
GAME MANAGEMENT UNIT 23 IS WHERE YOU'LL BE HUNTING.
They will process your request and send it right to your doorstep. Just make sure you leave plenty of time between purchasing them and departing for your hunt for them to process and mail them out.
YES! Although Kotzebue is a small Village, they are the hub for approximately 11 outlying smaller Villages - therefore, there are actually several places to stay while in Kotzebue. There's a couple of Hotels and B&B's which will take great care of you and provide you with Hot Showers, a Comfy Bed and Great Hospitality.
The Local Inupuaq Elder's LOVE the meat they receive from our Alaska Caribou Hunters. We keep a list of Elder's who can no longer go out and hunt for themselves so we can call them when we have meat our hunters have brought in from the field. We welcome the opportunity to assist the Community with meat that will help sustain them throughout the cold, harsh winters.
We have transitioned to an Amphibious Turbine Beaver. This plane is a real work horse and will provide you with an awesome Alaskan Experience by landing on both water and land!
Alaska Caribou Hunting in NW Alaska .... it's something most avid hunters have on their bucket list and is a great hunt to get your feet wet on all of what Alaska has to offer in the way of outdoor adventures. Our 2019 Season was nothing short of another amazing season - the best part of it all (for us) is having the ability to get our clients into the field on an adventure they will be able to share stories with their family and friends for a lifetime.
Early August our first hunters arrive in town ... stepping off the Alaska Airlines jet in Kotzebue, AK (located 33 miles above the Arctic Circle) can be an adventure all by itself. For those of you that have been, it's a mile long runway surrounded by water on one side and a hill on the other end. Just getting into and out of town can sometimes provide some blood pumping experiences.
