    I will bet that is the upper Squirrel River!

    It is strange to see that kind of movement this early. Unit 23 bou only move when the temps in unit 26 make them move. Strange!

    I hope my guys are looking!

    Northwest Alaska Back Country Rentals had a late cancelation and this opens up a 13 foot raft package for anyone who needs one for unit 23. I will be shipping all gear by 8/20/13 so let me know ASAP! Float hunting opens up a lot more country than a drop camp! The common link to all of Steve's photos is the river that the Bou are traveling down.

    did you take those pics?? the reason i ask is because i saw them on facebook and heard they were somwhere else other than kiana area, still in 23 though.. just curious. cool pictures hopefully the migration wont be quite as far east this year and some come closer to town. i dont know walt don't you think the squirrel would have more trees even in the headwaters? looks a little barren to me.

    Nope, didn't take them. They were emailed to me this morning from a guy in Kotz. He told me they where from the Kiana area.

    They looked grouped up to keep the misquitos from driving them crazy.

    Looking at their colors, the picture is pretty recent, they Bulls are near done shedding and the females about 2 weeks behind. The fly holes should be healed up and the short hairs shiney, short and perfect for clothing, the meats perfect for drying.

    Looks like I just gotta get up there with the wife and catch a couple dozen ~~LOL!!~~

    This is why hunting bow in unit 23 is the only way to go.

    If you read the news about the WACH, the total herd numbers are actually down from the high a few years ago. High was over 400 thou. Last years count showed something around 350. F&G and the feds photograph and actually count the animals in the photo's. So counts are actual numbers and not estimates.
    There are other good places to hunt bou besides unit 23. Between weather and herd movement, the WACH is not the guaranteed hunt it used to be. Bou hunting anywhere is generally a crap shoot.
