I know these long adventure stories are more typical for sheep hunts, but I had a great time hunting caribou this year so I wrote up all the details and took lots of pictures. I also wanted sort of a practice run / gear test for sheep hunting next year, so I made this a backpack hunt in the Clearwater CUA. I'm glad I did it this way to pick up a few good lessons before trying for sheep. I did a lot more work than was probably necessary to find some meat, and I never saw any really big trophy-class bulls, but it was still one of my favorite hunts ever.
The full story & pics are too long to post here, so I'll just link to the story my site:
And a few of my favorite pics:
