ok,I hunted the Haul Road for the first time this year about the second week of September. We did get some shots but saw about 50-100 annimals a day. We spoke to one camp that had been there for 2 weeks and the animals had just showed up? Is this a normal year or is it just an off year? I had the time of my life and I want to go back but when should i plan it. By reading this forum I thought the last 2 weeks of August was best but now I think that was just the time most hunters went up there! We spent most of the time near Toolik lake as that was where the animals where located. Also has anyone used a blind up there for cover? Most animals where in the open and hard to stalk!!!! Some locals said that October 1st was a better time of year, just would like to see more animals. Thanks as always.
