I am just wondering if anybody has used Arrowhead outfitters for a drop camp caribou hunt ?

My dad and I are going next year. Hunt is already booked. We were a little late booking so we didn’t get “prime time” dates but will be going early august.

We will be hunting north of the Brooks range. My dad is 73 and said we needed to do one last “epic trip” before he is unable to. He has not traveled much at all so I said we are going to Alaska !

A buddy and I will be there August 8-18. Our first time so I don’t have any info for you. You’re going in 2022?

I used them for a flight back to civilization at the end of a float trip last year. They were very good with communication prior to and during our trip. They were a little swamped on pick-up day (mid-sept) but got us out at the last minute with no issues. The pilot told us they had 100% success on their caribou hunt earlier that year, but I can’t confirm that.

That’s good to hear. That’s what they told me too. 100% and they average in the high 90s.

If you search this forum you will find some very negative things about them from back in 2015. But they have a lot of great reviews online and we have not had any problems yet. Maybe they have got it together over the last 6 years. I always see the good in people and doing so seem to bring the good out in them.

New owners took over in 2020. I’m kind of surprised they did not change the business name, given those past reviews. Why start with that kind of strike against you?

Maybe they’ll make everyone forget those issues, maybe they’ll create their own problems. All I know is that they saved our 2020 moose trip after Brooks Range Aviation suddenly shut down due to covid last June.

Yeah that’s strange. I have been dealing with Misty there and she is a lot to handle but very nice and a wealth of information.

I flew with them last year. Thought they did a great job. Flew us in a day early and promptly got us out after tagging out. Killed two good bulls and saw thousands of caribou. Wouldn’t hesitate to go with them again.

Awesome. That’s good to hear. I’m guessing there are cheaper ways to do this hunt but I figured this was a good way to get our feet wet. I hunted black bear in SE Alaska but that didn’t have a lot of logistics.

I thought the whole trip was fairly reasonable. If you have any questions don’t hesitate to ask
