My Dad has decided he wants to come to Alaska next fall for a Caribou hunt and I want to try and do everything I can to make that happen! He's 70 this year and if we're gonna do it, now is the time.
I have done just some basic reading but would love some direction from you guys as to where to start planning a hunt of this kind. I will start with the regulations. Trophy animal quality is not important, we are more interested in the experience and spending time together enjoying our favorite pasttime. My dad is in pretty decent shape for 70 but a really physically demanding hunt isn't desirable. He has done a cruise ship tour of Alaska a few years ago, but that is our only experience in your beautiful state.
Are we too late to get something set up for next year? Any guidance you could provide would be very helpful! We are both very experienced big game hunters and elk hunt in Colorado about every other year.
