Doing a lot of research on-line for a possible 2008 trip to the Dalton Highway Corridor Mgt Area...gotta love the internet.
I found a caribou mgt report from Jun 2000 that mentioned a requirement for an archer to label their arrows with their bowhunter education cert number. I can't find this anywhere in the regs. Still a requirement? Just want to make sure I do everything right.
I also found a population survey on the central artic herd that said most of the herd starts heading south by Aug and is in the Brooks' foothills by Sep (mentioning Toolik, Galbraith, and the headwaters of Itishak and the Sag). But, I read a posting or saw soemthing about a hunter getting a bull in the Franklin Bluffs area in Oct...that's a long way from the foothills I think. Do the bulls migrate south later? Are there animals in the foothills in late Aug?
I'm really not an avid road hunter and would prefer to locate an area with a higher probability and then just trek out. Any ideas would be helpful.
