If you google "arctic air caribou" this thread is the third result down...seems like the least someone could do in 2021 when planning is google who they are going on a hunt of a lifetime with
100% agreed. There's a lot more reading material available now than when we were booking for 2021, which is good.

I hope people will find information here on Arctic Air that goes beyond the references they provide from hunts that didn't have any challenges or complications. I also hope people will question whose interests "their booking agent" is looking out for. That was a learning experience for me. I wouldn't think of them as "my agent" any more than I would think of a car salesman as my representative to the dealership. (No offense to any car salesmen--in practice, I've had several good ones who were more helpful after the sale then our booking agent--but I think the general analogy holds true).

We were supposed to get to the field on the 12th but had 1 day delay due to the winds. Once out there we had a good hunt. Seemed like we were in a funnel, everything we saw was moving NORTH! to a drainage in the mountains north of us. On our midday break back at camp the second day we had a group of bulls show up and we pulled a quick "double". Just when you think nothing is happening... Had a visit from a grizz that night and let me tell you, when you put your headlamp in his face at 40' their eyes look like glowing tennis balls! He left but apparently returned, we lost one bag of meat and a piece of hide I was going to bring home to make a rug for the wife. Regardless, successful trip and no complaints with Arctic Air's service. twincedar, nice to meat you, let us know how you did!
Very nice!

In my opinion they could have done a few things that wouldn't have cost them a nickel and would have changed my entire opinion about their operation. For example, if your flying into a lake to pick up hunters who have lost all of there meat to bears and you have another group of hunters on the same lake wouldn't you offer to at least retrieve and safeguard meat and horns? I realize it's legally a little complicated but its a solveable problem.
