Going to stop by the Fairbanks DNR tomorrow, but was looking for insight on the White Mountain herd for the August 10th hunt. I can make it there for 2 weekends in August, but know absolutely nothing about the area. From what I've read, sounds like a quota of 29 caribou has been set in past. Had a couple of questions about it:
How is the area in August? Overgrown/hard to hike?
Are ATV's aloud? Because if they are and there's only 29 permits, I'm not going to waste time having ATVer's get out far and me be stuck.
Is the terrain high enough to glass for the bou then stalk?
Any odds/ends regs I'm not seeing?
I see its open west of Preacher and North of Steese in 25C. But its also open East of Dalton in unit 20 as well. And all of 25D. Is there a "smarter/known" way to get to them? Ex. Hike/Bike/Drive
Please shoot me a PM or answer with any info that could help out. Thanks!!
