My college buddy from the L48 is wanting to come up this fall to join me on a quality caribou hunt. As a non-resident, I think his best opportunity will be either the 40-Mile herd or going far north to the big herds. Right now we're weighing options out of Happy Valley, Kotz, Fairbanks and Delta Junction. I'd say our budget is in the $800-$1200 range for transport but a high quality experience is more essential. We would consider a float hunt and are looking at the last few weeks of September as our timeframe. Any recommendations or personal experiences are much appreciated!
