I'm new to AK and I happen to have some spare time in mid/late Oct - so I am thinking about heading to Adak in mid Oct to see if I can can get some caribou meat. I've been reading some past threads on the forum to get as much info as possible. While I have lots of lower 48 midwest hunting experience, this will be my first outing in AK, so if anybody has hunting recently in Adak, would you mind sharing some intel on what I should expect and try to avoid? Is Oct even a good time to head out there?
I have a lab that is dying to retrieve some birds- would it be worthwhile to take him for ptarmigan or duck hunting? I will be going by myself, and based on what I have read, there are 4 wheelers and argos available so going alone should not be too problematic....right?
Any contemporary info is appreciated - thanks!
