I am hoping someone on here can give me an idea or a contact that will help me salvage a good hunt out a tangled situation. I planned a hunt for August 13-26 for me, my dad and my youngest brother. I bought my dads ticket to try to pay him back for all the hunting trips he payed for when I was a kid and we originally planned on a caribou hunt on the Haul road. Everything looked good and everyone is excited about it, but then I remembered yesterday that the State of Alaska requires archers to be Archery Hunter Safety Certified. I went online and researched where they could get certified before the hunt. Most states in the lower 48 don't require anything for Archery other than a license and because of this there are very few options to get certified. So I contacted Bob Hunter to find out what they have done for other people but he is out of town for a few days. I am wondering if one of you know if there is an air service that works out of an airport up there that could drop us off in the rifle area. I have heard people talk about a guy who used to drop hunters off with an airboat, but I don't know if that is a good option or not. I have a river raft and could float out but I don't see many options for accessing the area by water. I would pack in to the Rifle area but my dad is getting up to the age that it would beat him up pretty good and I would prefer to make this as enjoyable as possible for him! So help a guy out, any info and all options are welcomed (it doesn't have to be on the Haul road but that was the only area I knew to be open for Caribou at that time)! My focus is sharing an awesome experience with family but I would love to to see them ice the cake with a nice Bou! Thanks in advance!
