Hey guys, I've searched the forum and archives and found a lot of great information about caribou hunting. I have one that I couldn't find the answer to regarding logistics.
My buddy and I are flying in from Omaha and are hunting with Deltana Outfitters out of Happy Valley. We are trying to figure out whether to fly into Fairbanks and drive 400 miles or instead fly into Prudhoe Bay and either rent a truck or have the outfitter pick us up.
We are concerned about weather being a factor in the drive as well as the possibility of getting done early (yes, I am an eternal optimist...) and making sure we have some way to process and store the meat (either ourselves or somewhere commercially). We plan to take it home with us and want to make sure we have the facilities to take proper care of it.
Given that, what would you guys recommend? Fly into Fairbanks and drive to Happy Valley or fly into Prudhoe and either drive or be picked up?
Thanks in advance for your input!
