Thread: Bou hunt for father this summer?

  1. #1

    Default Bou hunt for father this summer?

    My father is just icthin' to come up here and kill a bou is year. I drew a Tier I tag so I cant hunt with him but I'm certainly going along to get him his bou. He is 71 and this hunt is about him not me. I was looking at some areas to take him and thought I would ask some folks on here for some ideas. He is in good health but I'll be doing the packing. He's certainly in good enough shape to setup camp for a week but I would prefer a semi guided deal if I could afford it.. Some place that has a warm bed at night verses a 2 man tent and no heat. Any one have any ideas as to what the best option would be for him? I know that's not a lot to go on but I don't want to put anymore restrictions on the hunt than I have to..

    I'm not looking for your favorite area just someone you know that could provide a hunt for him where he has a good chance at killing a bou and is as cost effective as possible. I want to get him a bou before he's to old to get up here. Considering all the memories he gave me hunting growing up this is the very least I can do for him.

    Thanks Guys

    Have you thought about a fly-out in the Brooks? You can take a comfortable camp, enjoy nice scenery and see lots of caribou. That would be my first choice.

    Try doing a search of this forum, you'll find that 70
    North is a highly recommended outfit. That's the route I'd go.
