    Default 14B AirCharter??

    Got lucky with a caribou tag for 14B, anyone done the hunt before have any suggestions or experience to recommend a charter service. Going with a couple friends that have drawn the tag in the past and gotten their bou' so that is covered. Looked at using the ATV's but decided on flyin. Thanks in advance for any advice.

    There really aren't a lot of choices. Alaska Bush Floatplane service does a ton of these hunts. For wheels it looks like Hudson Air mighit be around but it's questionable at this point. That pretty much only leaves Talkeetna Air Taxi for wheels.

    I guess there might be a couple operations out of Willow, but I don't know them.

    I was wondering about them yesterday when I drove by their little airport. I was wondering if they were still in operation.

    How did your boy fair out last year? I've contacted 4 of the charter's already and waiting for replys. From what I've heard, should be a good hunt.

    Denali Air in Willow "Barry" flys a Maule on wheels. His # is 495-5899..I havent' spoken w/ him in awhile, but heard {rumor} that he was eventually going to pick up a Super Cub. He's very reliable behind the stick & a good guy. Probably worth speaking w/ him about your tag.

    --I haven't hunted the are before for caribou, good luck!
