I've read everything in the archives but most has been about the beginning of October. My wife and I just got back from a trip up there and we had a great time. It was my wife's first time hunting period. She loved it and said it was very addicting. She wants to back, as do I, but our work schedules won't allow for time off until the 27th-31st of October.
Now my wife is just interested in getting a caribou with her bow, it doesn't matter what it is. We came close to getting some on our trip last week but just ran out of time.
Despite the weather and the road conditions, etc., is this a good time to go for numbers of caribou? I really want to try and help my wife get something with her bow before winter really sets in. She's just chomping at the bit now and is constantly asking about when, where, what she can hunt and what we can do next year.
Any thoughts on this time period up there?
