I have stumbled into a chance of a lifetime opportunity. Next month I am going to Deadhorse Alaska to hunt Caribou. I am looking for any info on who to use or how to go about shipping the trophy home? If all goes well we will have 4 caribou to ship home. I have sent emails and tried to make some calls when I have time, but I was hoping to take advantage of someone else's experience. Thank you in advance for any info.

Alaska Airlines usually has large antler boxes for shipping whole racks or you can split the skulls to pack into a smaller box. Some terminals may but not always sell waxed fish boxes with plastic liners to ship meat which should be first cooled. Bring a good credit card! Shipped as extra baggage works best and goes with you on the flights home. Air freight can be cheaper but you must be a known shipper to do that out of state. Coolers are an option but you are unlikely to be able to buy any in Deadhorse.
You should check with Alaska Airlines on the specifics but they do have a section in their Air Freight menu on meat and antler shipping.
Good luck and bring plenty of $$

When I took my caribou outside of Umiat, Alaska I packed the skull with antlers attached in a crate big enough to hold it and shipped it back that way. I took the meat and cut it up into pieces, wrapped it in butcher paper, froze it solid, then loaded an ice chest completely full and taped it shut and shipped it home. Took it two days to get there and it was still froze solid when it arrived.
