I'll be making four trips to AK this year, one for a blackie hunt on PWI in June with my daughter and three others for work.
The work related trips are in May, September and December. Most of my time will be spent in Anchorage with perhaps a day or two in Juneau or Fairbanks. I'm thinking of extending my September trip to include a caribou hunt if its possible.
Recent posts have completely cured me of thinking of hiking the 5 miles off the road...thank you very much!!
I do bow hunt regularly in Montana, but mainly for deer (everyone else is after elk with the stick and string). Can someone describe the general process, terrain, tactics, etc. of bow hunting off of the haul road? I have images of endless tundra with no-where to hide and making 60 yard shots in raging windy conditions.
Long drives don't bother me, I regulary go over 300 miles one direction just to shoot prairie dogs.
I'd consider a fly-out but I'll be solo. Not a problem in MT but not necessarily wise in AK for a first timer.
Thanks for any help.
