    Default Haul Road Caribou Pictures

    Heres my 2014 Haul Road Bou. My third trip up from Montana and my third Bou. We will be back up in 2015. The next picure is the "runway" left in the snow by a Grizz as he charged me. I got between him and a herd of caribou he was trying to ambush and I guess I looked like an easier target. He "locked" onto me from about 300 yards out and closed the gap with amazing speed. Luckily for me he stopped about 100 feet out after I sent a warning shot from my .45. This was just west of the road at "Oil Spill Hill". The pipeline can be seen at the top right corner of the picture.

    Oil Spill Hill...lots of lessons learned right there.
    4 young inexperienced guys with 'bou fever should not make a decision on the fly to go hunt the slope.
    5 miles is a long walk sometimes.
    Those little plastic sleds at the department stores are worthless.
    Cheap tents aren't worth it, especially when the wind starts blowing on the slope.
    0 degree sleeping bags can really get to 0 degrees if it is cold out.
    Snow does not equal unlimited supplies of drinkable water.
    Military issued gear isn't the best in the world.
    Caribou walk really fast, even when they don't appear to be.
    You can only survive for so long on beef jerky and dehydrated fish.
    Gas freezes when it get's cold...especially when it has moisture in it.
    Cold Foot is a heck of a place for the gas pumps to brake.
    The gas station on the Yukon is not open 24 hrs.
    4 guys really stink in a Ram Charger.

    I shot the bull on September 2. Same day as the bear encounter. This is a great father/son trip to take. My Dad and Brother are my hunting partners.
