I'm just starting to think about a trip to Alaska in early September 2011 for caribou and upland birds. The draw is over for the arctic caribou zones, but the area east of Faribanks looks to be a large, general tag zone. Anybody hunt caribou between Fairbanks and the Canadian border? Thinking of a 5 day fly-in drop camp. Any info would be appreciated, including areas and air service recommendations. Would be flying in to Fairbanks, and then heading out. Thanks in advance for your help.

Let me know what you find out. My partners brother just found out that he's getting stationed on Kodiak and we were thinking about doing the same thing. Not sure what the rules are regarding DIY and out of state residents. Some species require a guide, but not sure about caribou.

No guide required for Caribou, only Grizzly/Brown bear, Dall Sheep, Mt. Goat. However, Your partner can hunt for those species without a guide IF he hunts with his brother (resident relative)

Bux, you're welcome to come along, of course! Last few days of August, first week of September. You will need to sleep in your own tent though, with all the meat and other grizzly-attracting food.
