Overall Impression: Good

This hunt proves that hunting is hunting and there are no guarantees. If I were to hunt caribou unguided in Alaska again I would use Lake Clark Air again. They delivered what they said they would, were on time and very professional in every way. They're highly regarded in Alaska and for good reason. We didn't see many caribou though. In fairness to Lake Clark Air they offered to extend the time of our hunt and a free relocation but we had return airfare lined up and couldn't extend our time in the field beyond the 6 day hunt. My advice to unguided caribou hunters would be to check out your air taxi very closely and contact as many references as possible and make sure a relocation is included or available. And take more time than you think you'll need. Wind & rain don't care about your schedule, and neither do wandering caribou herds. There are a lot of animals but there is also a lot of space in Alaska that doesn't hold any at all - but it changes daily. Lake Clark Air is a good outfit and I'd use them again.
