For the Canada hunts I was looking at driving up. I'm in Nebraska so the drive up looked reasonable for two guys to make (roughly 16 hours north for the areas I was looking into) Being able to avoid airline costs and meat shipping costs made it look like a cheaper option. I was looking at guided for both. This thread got me looking again yesterday afternoon and the outfitter prices have gone up quite a bit since I last looked. I would much rather do a DIY in Alaska but since I have never set foot anywhere north of Fargo I figured my best chances at success were guided.i dont see how canada would be cheaper cause of the mandatory hiring a guide, just curious what u guys hunted up there and cost. Alaska is a place everyone needs to experinece, i had an amazing time and did a diy caribou drop camp that i thought was affordable.
I want to go but I'm thinking a it won't be for a few years. I'm considering taking my son on his senior trip depending on what he has going on. He is a freshman this year so I have some time. Any recommended outfitters?You looking for Caribou Hilltop? If you are just make sure you do your homework. Some great outfitters up there but there is some you want to steer away from.
