    I think you might mean 70 North, does 40 mile fly to the north Brooks? Also, lots of people talk about Coyote.

    I flew with Mike & 70 North. You won't be disappointed. He knows the area well and takes care of you.

    An friend of mine also know Matt & Emily with Ovis Outfitters. I believe they are running some caribou hunts up north as well, although I think they might be guided.

    Matt Thoft, Sliver tip aviation, Ovis outfitters is another great guy.
    Brett Thoft, Full Curl aviation.

    I did a DIY out of happy valley last year, and I would go with all of these guys. I would not however go with the ladder three posts. IMPO, They get good reviews but I didn't have a splendid experience.

    I am flying with Dan Sailors this year up there and while we of course haven't been yet, he has been very easy to reach and happy to answer questions. I had heard bad reviews by word of mouth and the net about some of the other transporters in happy valley but not him nor his partner Brett Thoft. A good friend of mine was a schoolmate of the Thoft brothers and says they are both top notch guys.
