    Default 40 mile herd walk-in hunt

    Hello all. I'm looking to hike in to hunt caribou off the steese. Any suggestions on whether it's feasible or not? Thank you

    What do you consider "feasible"? Call Torsten at Fairbanks F&G and ask him if there are any bou within what you consider feasible distance of the road.

    I would not consider the 40 mile a walk in type of hunt. Better hints for that sort of thing.

    Sure, lots do it. When the herd crossed the road you can shoot them from the shoulder with everyone else. All kidding aside you have plenty of areas to glass from the summit. Lots of side by sides riding the road glassing. Hiking in is not preferable because the country is so big but many shoot their bull from the roadside. All about the timing.
