For those who are interested in the details of the self-guided Alaska carribou hunt here you go. Please keep in mind my trip took place the week after 911, so airline prices, hunting permits, & air taxi prices could've changed. If I remember right the cost per hunter at that time averaged around $1,500 (a few of us were able to use some frequent flyer miles to help on airline prices).

We flew out of Yakima, Wa. to Seattle Wa. From Seattle we flew to Anchorage Alaska (the airport there is a hunters paradise - it seemed like everyone one was packing around pictures of their hunt, antlers or a fishing pole.) Some pretty cool taxidermy work as well. Pretty cool!!! From Anchorage we flew to Iliamna air taxi. From there we flew to our camp. The pilots are very friendly and will fly you out to where the herds are and drop you off at the nearest lake.

The Iliamna air taxi is the place that flew us out. The phone number is (907) 571-1248. I do remember that the float planes were the biggest expense of the trip.


Air line tickets from home to Iliamna Alaska

Air fare from Iliamna to Camp

Hunting tags

food/souvinour money

And of course Taxidermy Fees OH YA BABY!!!!! :cool:

If I remember to pull the pictures tonight I will post some. I have one here at work I tried putting in the picture threads, but it wouldn't fit (the file was to big). For more details you can pm me. thanks guys!!

Whitetails here in Michigan. May not be as big as some of the other states, but there are plenty of them.
call 'em in and kill 'em all

This is my first year going after big game. Just got my bow, and I am already addicted I can't get enough info on it. I have plans in place for a spring Boar hunt, and then I hope to hunt Muley’s, Elk, Whitetails and Turkey. Good thing I have a supportive wife!! And if the bug keeps biting I hope to someday draw an Antelope, and Big Horn tag .... I know the Big Horn tag is a once in a life time deal but there is always hope.
