As my 1st trip to Alaska nears (bowhunt for caribou on the North Brooks Range), I'm finalizing my gear list...and looking for some advice on this particular item.
Heard and read the stories about walking across the tundra. I've never used trekking poles or even a hiking stick in my life. Honestly, I can't envision myself using these for day hunts? Maybe I'll get up there and the tundra will change my mind? If I'm fortunate enough to get a caribou down....I could see them coming in handy for hauling loads.
Just weighing the investment....your feedback is much appreciated.
