Caribou chest size?
I'll be going on my first AK caribou hunt this fall and was looking for the depth of an average bull caribou chest to use as a range "guestimator" with my scopes duplex crosshairs.
Google search turns up a whole bunch of info on caribou, but I can't seem to find anywhere that gives the depth of a bull caribou's chest.
I surely would appreciate a little help here.
20 inches seems to be average
I measured a few when I lived in Barrow for use with a mildot reticle on my scope. The limit was five per day, so I had plenty of "test subjects." Most bulls measured 20 inches consistently.
Gunslinger is right, the average bou will be around 20-23 inches and the bigger bulls will only be an inch or to differance and same for the smaller ones, inch or 2 smaller
Thanks for the info. Much appreciated.
