I have been reading Larry Bartlett's and Michael Strahan's float hunting books and if anyone needs good references, they are both packed full of great information and I highly recommend. We are heading to the rivers here in a couple of weeks to do our first float caribou/moose hunting trip and after reading both books they talk about "optimal floating times" and I just wanted to see if anyone that has experience with float trips can help me. It says to float early in the morning or late in the afternoons. They say to glass and rest during the day. I would never question these seasoned professionals, but I just wanted to make sure I am understanding this correctly. I thought you would want to glass and hunt and stalk when they are up moving around more (mornings and dawn), but they are saying we should be traveling down the river to our next stop on these times when the animals are moving. I guess I am used to hunting in the lower 48 where you want to be stationed and positioned to glass on times when animals might be moving (mornings and dawn), but I feel like Larry and Michael suggest us moving when the animals are moving. Is this in hopes of crossing paths with the moose or caribou? I hope Larry and Michael read this because I would love to hear their reasoning and help me wrap my mind around these concepts. Either way, I am going to do what they tell me in the books, but I know I will come across some questioning on my floating during the morning motives so I want answers. Thanks in advance for your help.
