Resident Hunters

Resident hunters can hunt caribou in this area from August 1st-March 31st with a limit of 2 caribou. You will need to sign up for the resident registration caribou hunt (RC 503) on Fish and Game's web site. We have a few places to hunt caribou from the river. For the last 3 years we have seen a few good bulls while bear hunting in the area. In 2016 we will be offering caribou hunts to residents only. We will provide guided, outfitted and unguided hunts or simple drop off hunts. These hunts will be offered from August 10-Sept. 30. We will meet you in Koliganek and return you to Koliganek which is on the Nushagak River. Airfare from Anchorage to Koliganek round trip is currently $620. We also have a charter schedule in the fall which we prefer to use when possible. You must be physically fit to do this hunt and be successful. You are not going to shoot them from the boat crossing the river. You will have to hike up the hills and down the ridges. Whether you choose to spike camp it out and stay on the ridges or camp along the river and and hike up daily is your choice. The area has excellent fishing.
