    Default guide recomendations

    I have a freind from the lower 48 who wants to go on a brown bear/ caribou hunt in 2008 or 2009. This has probably been asked before but does anyone recomend a guide I can direct him too? Also let me know which guides he should avoid.

    Default Primary Species?

    Which of those would be the primary species for the hunt? Although they can be found in the same areas, that doesn't mean the prime areas for one will be a good area for the other. What is the species he's most interested in?

    if he wants brown and caribou that limits you to ak pen or western ak, the rest would be grizz and caribou. Its always best to focus on one and take the second as it comes, biting off for two sometimes works but sometimes don't.

    Default Guide recommendation

    His first choice is a brown bear, second choice Caribou and explained to him that he would probably have to focus on one or the other.

    Default Brown bear opening

    I have an opening for a fall brown bear float hunt for 2009, if you want to drop me a PM.

    This area also has a good black bear population and some caribou. To be completely honest, the caribou are very few in this area. Last fall I saw two bulls, but both were wall-hangers for sure.

    The river also offers good fishing opportunities.

    Regards,

    That sounds like an accurate description. I heard he feeds his clients M.R.E.'s?
