I'm hoping to get out for a summer/early fall Caribou hunt. The only thing is that we are rookies when hunting off of Kodiak Island. We'd like to find hunting country that we can either take atvs into, hike into, or possibly take canoes. Since we are all teachers, we are limited to hunting before August 20th, the first day of school. We aren't looking for monster bulls but rather a successful meat hunt.
So aside from the Haul road hunt, what options are there that would meet our criteria AND we would be able to enjoy some success. With the haul road, how far North would we need to consider going in order to find the herd at that time of year?
With Caribou, are they more likely to be found in the low country, mid country, high country? We honestly don't know much about caribou.
We have done a lot of deer hunting on Kodiak in bear country and know how to handle meat with predators around.
Thanks for all your help. I appreciate all of your advice.
