Does anyone know of a good air taxi that will rent equipment, and boasts a good success rate on caribou. I will be coming from Texas and I think getting all of the camping equipment packed will be a logistical nightmare.

I don't know the guy, but every single report of his services has been 100% positive. He's not an air taxi, but will set you up with all of the equipment you need. He'll also help you get things squared away while in Kotzebue, and I'm assuming can put you in contact with the most reputable air taxis up there.
He posts on here under the name of Northwestalska. Give him a shout.
I believe brooks range aviation is another that rents gear.
I didn't realize that Coyote Air also rents gear. In that case, I should also point out that I have never read a negative report about their services either. They seem to run a great operation!
