HUNTING THE ALASKAN HIGH ARCTIC
Big-Game Hunting for Grizzly, Dall Sheep, Moose, Caribou, and Polar Bear in the Arctic Circle
by Scott Haugen

2000 Long Beach, 240pp, b&w photos, 6x9, hardcover, dj
ISBN: 978-1-57157-295-0

Haugen has faced man-eating lions in Africa and has hunted in the world’s most challenging terrain, but he came closest to death in an Arctic storm. Alaska—a hunter’s paradise set in an unforgiving climate—required Haugen to sharpen his prowess as he pursued polar bear, caribou, grizzly, wolverine, moose, Fannin and Dall sheep, tundra wolf, and white fox. Stationed as teachers in the remotest parts of Alaska, Haugen and his wife spent three years in Point Lay and four years among the Inupiat Eskimos in the remote village of Anaktuvuk Pass teaching the children of one of the world’s last true hunting cultures. Invited to hunt with the Eskimos of the Alaskan Arctic, he encountered caribou, bear, and sheep that had never before set eyes on a human, so remote were the areas he frequented.

This uplifting book is for those who would scale near-vertical cliffs after Dall ram, hunt in whiteout conditions as windchill dips off the charts, race against time to stalk and field dress in agonizing cold, and risk life and limb for the thrill of the hunt.
