    Heading up next week. Any reports from those that have already gone? Construction woes, caribou sightings, etc?

    Thanks!

    I saw over 1000 about 25 miles NW of Deadhorse two weeks ago...heading for a stroll away from bugs.

    Holy crap! How do you take a stroll 25 miles to the NW of Deadhorse? Does a stroll mean flying an airplane?

    Just got back yesterday. First few days it was depressing on how few caribou I saw. Then around Friday they started showing up around mile 365ish. By Sunday they were all the way down to toolik lake. Two areas of construction with pilot cars, one north of coldfoot and one just south of Prudhoe Bay (long one). Otherwise road in great shape. Fewest amount of hunters I have seen up there, but still enough to ruin a couple of stalks but that's road hunting in Alaska.

    Trying to figure out why a cow caribou standing in the middle of the road equates to easy hunting. Did you shoot this caribou?

    This was a young bull, it had nuts under it. However I was being sarcastic about it being an easy hunt. I was actually working so no hunting for me. What I can say though is they are getting little thicker and seen multiple “bigger” bulls over the course of the last couple days. They are moving east to west and still haven’t herded yet. So when I mean thicker I mean more sightings in less miles traveled
