Thread: Northwest Arctic Caribou

  1. #1

    Default Northwest Arctic Caribou

    I just got a crazy idea that I might get bored and take a crack at heading out towards OTZ to chase a 'bou. Does anyone have any suggestions in terms of air taxis and and estimate of how much they are getting for drop offs?
    Thanks

    Wouldn't it be better to call some of the transporters there and get a real figure, instead of hearsay.
    Call Haggeland Aviation in Kotz and ask for Eric. That's a good place top start.

    I know that when I looked into it it was around 2k a person with ~100 lbs of gear.

    It depends who you go with. Some air charters such as Mavrik Air charge a set fee to drop you off somewhere and bring you back with up to two caribou. Eric Sieh at Hageland charges you per hour for up to 800lbs per load. I used Mavrik in 2004, Eric in 2005 and will be using Eric again this year.
