Alaska Kobuk Outfitters is owned and operated by Wayne Taylor. He has been hunting in this area for over 40 years and guiding for over 20 years. His sons Cecil and Brian assist Wayne with running the camp and guiding. They have both grown up hunting in the area.
The camp is located above the Arctic Circle, in the Squirrel River Valley of the western Brooks Range. Clients fly into the Inupiaq village of Kotzebue where they board small bush planes for the 80 mile trip to the hunting area. Base camps consist of comfortable free standing Hansen Weatherport tents with cots and heaters, including a shower tent. The main tent is a cooking area and gathering point for discussing the days hunt. Cooking is provided by the staff using a modern 4 burner gas stove with oven. Transportation in camp is by foot, and Kawasaki 4 wheel drive vehicles with trailers used for hauling game and supplies.
