Last month I made my first trip to Alaska on a DIY caribou hunt. I killed my bull on day 1 of a 7 day hunt.

We tried to get our third hunter on a bull. Unfortunately the caribou numbers got less and less and by day 4 they were gone. He was archery hunting and did not want to use a rifle. We did eat some of the caribou though!

Great bull. Curious how the DIY hunt in Alaska works. Do you apply for a draw or buy OTC tags?

It is over the counter tags. Hire a guide or air taxi and have them drop you off in the bush. Most guides limit you to between 75 and 100 pounds of gear including food. Buy the best gear you can afford. Alaska can be unforgiving especially on a DIY hunt. Go with several people who are not beginners in the woods. Weather determines when help will arrive if you need any. We planned for this hunt for over a year.
