    Default Coleen River anyone?

    Would anyone be willing to discuss this river with me through PM or email concerning fall caribou and moose? Looking for info on float conditions, hunting pressure, habitat, fishing, etc.

    I've searched the forum and scoured the net for pics of the area and any info but there's not much out there.

    Thanks

    Mossyhorn, I haven't floated the river, but I do know that Mike Strahan has that river covered in his book "Float Hunting Alaska's Wild Rivers". If you didn't want to buy the book, you can probably PM him and he may answer your questions.

    Good Luck,

    Mossy, I would concur with Mooses suggestion on obtaining Mike's book and his advise. I don't have the link available but if you want to buy a copy you'll have to go through Amazon.com.

    I also sent you a pm.

    According to all the info on the internet about Mike's book.............before it came out..............any river mentioned in it would soon be overcrowded.
    However, I think the upper coleen is one of the few places guys have done successful Moose/Bou hunts.
    I can't help being a lazy, dumb, weekend warrior.......I have a JOB!
    I have less friends now!!
