caribou hunts, $1500 drop camps?

i would like to gather a few friends and head north caribou hunting with a rifle. my uncle went with a guide in the early 1990s and had a blast. i realize priced have increased,but am wondering if there are any outfitters doing drop camps for a reasonable cost?

Re: caribou hunts, $1500 drop camps?

There are alot of options out there right now, depending on what you get. I know of drop camps for as low as $1700 that give you no food and you have to take your own gear and can shoot one caribou. To places where for $3100 you get flown into a camp with equipment and food for the week and can shoot two caribou.
Drop camp is the way to go. If the caribou are there, you do not need a guide to kill them. If they aren't there, no guide is going to help you. All a caribou guide really is, is a pack mule for when the shooting is done.
I've killed 9 caribou from Quebec to Newfoundland to Alaska. If it were me, I'd be headed to Alaska. Good luck.

Is that one of the late winter hunts when the animals move close to town? If so, many of the bulls have dropped the antlers. Worth checking out though.
