    Thumbs up Chicken Caribou Success...

    Here is the reward of pressing outside the box and working hard rather than playing leap frog on Caribou ridge. No downers on the guys up on the ridge...it's just nice to let everyone know that there is ALOT of land out there where one can hunt these beautiful animals without having to deal with all the numbers of people. I was about 35 miles in and couldn't see a camp in any direction...and here is the cherry on top of this great weekend...

    Happy Hunting...

    Default I agree

    Nice 'bou indeed. I did the same thing you did, went 35-40 miles in and started glassing and stalked this bull. Guys I talked to on the way out today couldn't believe that I would spot and stalk a caribou and then hike in to get it and carry it out uphill (even if it did take all night).

    Smile Thanks...

    to everyone...I have busted my butt and gone through a lot to finally get such a magnificent animal. My last trip was a nightmare...some of you may have seen the boat on the tundra last year...yeah, I was in that group and that was just the tail end of a CRAZY trip. Couldn't of happened any sooner as I will be leaving this state and going back to Arizona in just a couple months. The mule deer and elk are calling...I will be back in the future for more fishing and hunting that's for sure...again, thanks and good luck to all of you...and remember to always extend the hand when you can...the rewards are more than any kept secret...oh, and I also did the spot and stalk...250 yard shot at the base of the neck...three steps and two rolls and it was done...

    Question Curiosity...

    I'm thinking of having my bull scored but was just curious as to what everyone thought it would score at...It is missing a shovel...and if need me I can post more pics...I'm only decent at scoring elk and mule deer...I have no idea as far as this guy...
