I was looking through the fish and game hunting regulations and noticed that caribou season is open for the 40-mile heard until February 28. (It's my understanding that this is up the Steese a ways) This is my first year as a resident hunter and I am unfamiliar with all the heard locations and such. Anyone have any advice regarding this season? My freezer is getting low to say the least and I could use the extra meat. I haven't heard anything about it by way of word of mouth around town. I would appreciate any advice or direction as to whether or not it is even practical to harvest one this time of year.
Thanks in advance
