We did not go up to do a spring hunt for Caribou off the Dalton this year because we decided that we did not want to hunt when they did not have antlers. so now we are looking at a late fall hunt like possibly November. I want to go when the ground is froze so it is easer to walk and also that is when my time off from work will be. Am I thinking to late in the year? I have all to proper gear to be out in harsh weather but I would still like to here some feedback from some of you guys with experience in the area. I will be rifle hunting 5 miles off the Hwy as per the law. And if their is sufficient snow I will use x country skis and snow shoes and I have an expedition sled to tow my gear.
