    That all depends on where home is.

    in coolers on the plane as checked baggage. There has been a few threads on the matter. Ship all your personal gear and hunting stuff back with the postal service. (Go to the military surplus and get a bunch of old sea bags) Weigh each cooler to max out as close to 100 lbs as you can get each. Maxing out at 4 coolers is the price break for making worth it. You will still get sticker shock but its worth it. OR limit what you bring back and donate the rest.

    Second the suggestion about contacting peterbuilt. My brother comes up from Ohio periodically. A caribou doesn't really product that much boned meat that you can't take it all back in two 50 pound fish boxes. Usually we throw in some cold packs. I usually mail all his hunting stuff home, he takes optics as carry on and the two boxes as his checked bags. So far so good the last five times.
