    Would it be easier/economical to plan a hunt in AK or Canada- Bear or Caribou.

    Group of us long time hunting buddies want to plan a hunt for 2016. We can't decide between Alaska and Canada, which do you believe would be a better overall hunt with keeping cost in mind?

    Canada is mandatory for requiring a guide unless you are Canadian. You can hunt in Alaska without a guide for all animals except Brown Bear, Dall sheep, Mountain Goat. If you are talking Caribou and Black Bear no guide required by law, just a lot of work, but very doable for most avid outdoorsmans. Now Canada does have some reasonably priced guided hunts though. You really have to examine specifics and compare apples and apples to compare price. But then price should not be everything if this is a hunt of a lifetime. God bless

    In my limited research, Canada has looked like the better option... I'm curious to see what other members opinions are as I also want to hunt caribou in the future.

    I hunted Quebec this year, had a great time. It's not like it used to be though. Looking forward to getting a couple more. I really want to get a barren ground Alaskan, and a Mountain Caribou. I am going to plan a drop camp in Alaska next.

    LOL AKaviator,

    I should have clarified what I meant by a better option. Canada, based on my limited research, is a cheaper hunt with good opportunities for a successful hunt. Alaska does look amazing though...

    I went on a woodland caribou hunt in Newfoundland back in 2009 and got the opportunity to take a nice one. Cost an arm and a leg to get everything flown back with the airlines. Fairly certain I still might be paying for it.

    If you have the opportunity to take multiple animals, I would recommend driving!
