Hi All, I'm new to the site and am hoping I can get some answers or advice to some questions I have about caribou hunting in Unit 23. Myself and three friends will be hunting this September...flying out of Kotzebou. I have spent a lot of time reviewing the hunting regulations for Alaska (and will continue to do so) but I just want to be certain of a few things:
1) It appears Unit 23 is open to nonresidents for caribou hunting and that there is no permit drawing that needs to be entered...i.e. I can purchase a tag online...is this true? So a hunting license and big game caribou tag is all that is needed?
2) Does a harvest tag come with the big game caribou tag or is this something that needs to be purchased seperate from those lincenses?
3) Is there a deadline tags and licenses need to be purchased by?
Any other advice on tags and licensing? Or any general hunting trip advice is appreciated. This is our first hunting trip to Alaska.
Thank you very much - FL SNIPER
