Thread: DC482 Update....

    Default DC482 Update....

    I dont know how to change the title of the thread I started on DC482 ideas...so here is the update!

    I drove my 10 yr old son up there this very early morning. We drove approx 23ish miles down the Denali from Cantwell. My son said the saw something on the near hill at bout 7:30am. We looked and it was a cow and a bull. They were not walking fast but still moving. I drove my truck about 1/2 mile on down the road past them and we jumed out and ran through a bog and then up to the top of the hill. When we crested it, it was perfect timing as they were about 80 yds away. He shot the bull using his .260 Rem. I will post pics here later..not at all a big one, but still a caribou.

    There was VERY LITTLE traffic on the highway w/ only 3 camps spotted. Good luck to all who are going!!
