I'm new to Alaska and honestly I'm new to the sport of hunting. Never shot anything bigger than a deer in Virginia and I was only 15 so my dad did all the work I'm looking to introduce myself to the sport by hunting the 40 mile herd near Deadhorse.
I live in Fairbanks and I've been on the Dalton before so I'm somewhat familiar with the area. Where can I find information on the herd and what would be the easiest way to get to them? I've heard some people simply park their trucks off the Dalton and hike 5 miles off the highway to get to the herd. I've also herd a popular spot is Happy Valley about 50 miles south of Deadhorse.
