    They will be worried about leakage, so it would be OK if its vacpac'ed or frozen/wrapped and in a cooler or fish box, at least this is how it is for fish.

    Thumbs up

    I flew my caribou home recently on AK Airlines in those fish boxes. As long as it's not leaking (like profishguide mentioned) or preferrably frozen, you'll be good to go. The boxes should weigh 50# without added fees. Any of the boxes weighing between 51# and 69# is $25 xtra, and anything over 70# is $50 xtra. Also, what they don't advertise (mainly to the tourists), is if you fly within the state of Alaska, you're allowed 3 check in's and one carry on. Good luck...

    Default action packer

    we just returned from Kodiak after a great Goat hunt. We put 95lbs of meat in a contractor trash bag and then in a action packer, worked great
