    Default Sept. caribou hunt footwear

    I'm doing a drop hunt out of coldfoot 2nd-3rd week of Sept. I'll either be in the brooks range or going after the central artic herd. What should I bring for footwear that time of year?

    Footgear for the second to the third week of Sept in the Brooks Range? Whatever is most comfortable strapped in snowshoes.

    Default Hard to tell

    That time of year is difficult to predict. You can most likely count on snow but not always, and it may be really cold (-20 F) or just moderately chilly (+20 F). Be sure you have a pair of insulated pac boots (Sorels, etc) available as the temps can dip pretty severely in a matter of hours. If it stays warm, then some sturdy rubber boots (Lacrosse, etc) will be handy.
    I guess that what I would do is call your transporter a few days before you leave and find out from them what the weather has been and what the conditions are.
    Here's some websites too.
