    Very cool. It looks like you could not have picked a better campsite.

    Looks like a fun hunt with your pop! Sure do love making memories like that. Dad's hunting days are probably over, but we sure did have some fun while it lasted.

    I've been thinking about caribou a lot lately, and cannot remember the last time I harvested one. Maybe this coming fall...

    Great job on the video by the way. Lighting was good, and you had several nice filming opportunities. Great stuff!

    Thanks for sharing. I really enjoyed the first part and had been hoping you hadn't forgotten to post the rest. I look forward to part 3. Congrats on a great trip with your dad.

    Thanks for sharing the video- looks like it was a great hunt! Hope you get to do it again sometime. You mentioned passing animals early you regretted passing later. Glad you were able to harvest a nice animal and not leave with just tag soup! I like the opportunity your video gives to look at some caribou and try to judge antlers; I'd agree that there were some good bulls early on that would have been great trophies. My quick guess is 350-375 class for a few of the really wide high racks, but none that quite hit book. Would you mind hearing other 'bou hunters chiming in with possible scores?

    Great video! You all have much better restraint than I, I would certainly have used my tag on day 2 (and likely would have been kicking myself later on in the day!)
