MeatEater Season 7: Doug and Mark Join Steve on an Alaskan Caribou Hunt

On this hunt, Steve takes his midwest whitetail hunting buddies, Doug Duren and Mark Kenyon, on their first Alaskan big game adventure. They fly by bush plane into an untouched, remote area of the eastern Alaska Range wilderness to intercept the caribou migration. Once they arrive at their destination, they find a seemingly endless parade of caribou traveling on their annual journey to their wintering grounds. With plenty of large, mature bulls to choose from, and hungry grizzlies shadowing the caribou, it’s a hunt unlike anything Doug or Mark have ever experienced. When the hunt comes to a close, Steve prepares Chinese hot pot with caribou tenderloin.
