Just got back last night. 1,089 miles or road.
2 1/2 days spent from Franklin Bluffs up to Purdoe. Saw only 3 small cows.
1 1/2 days spent from Franklin Bluffs south. Saw 1 cow moose and a calf walking a ridgeline.
Absolutely nothing for caribou anywhere. Spent time scanning every advantage point we could find and nothing within 38X of the spotting scope. Did see some Musk Ox and that was it.
Three F&G Troopers, 1 plane, 1 helicopter, 1 road warrior. Road warrior said that he had been up in the plane and the caribou were 30 miles east.
Sorry guys..... report is not good.
Saw 2-3 racks on trucks of guys either flying out or using the airboat.
Went to bed last night and could not sleep as all I could see with my eyes closed was road.
