    Default 180 Caribou hunt

    Anyone have any ideas on where a guy could fly a 180 on floats and have a good shot at some caribou? Has anyone done this off the haul road?

    That is easy!!!


    Take off from any air strip and head due west by north west for 99 air miles, turn due south at the big tree with the 2 pretty girls hiding behind and fly another 99 miles south by south east. stop off at No Name Lake or Hidden Creek and the place will be crawling with bou and most will be B & C for sure!


    Take some pics!

    There are more than 2 pretty girls but the rest have been scouted already. Plus, you must know by now that hunters on here never give up their honey holes. .

    Maybe give the air taxis in Bettles and Coldfoot a call and see if they will point you in the right direction? They would probably be your best source of information as long as they don't see you as competition.

    You could fly into lake Louise or susitna lake and hunt your caribou tag that route, or maybe you could find a slough off the ivishak river you could land on

    The Ivishak is skinny. I wouldn't touch down with floats there. It can rise or fall 6" over night.
    Plenty of places for bush wheels though.

    Head west to the Mulchatna herd, smaller herd than 10 years ago but if you have your own ride it would be easy.
