Well we are in wrap-up mode up here. There are still plenty of groups of hunters out in the field and the number count on good bulls is very high. I have seen some very impressive bulls coming back to town and the groups that I have worked with year seem to be doing well. To any of the guys who I have worked with please send me some photos as I would love to display your trophies on my web site. I will do my updating in November and you can start looking for your photos then.
I am interested in seeing how the entire hunting community has done so please chime in and share your experiences. How was the hunting, what were your experiences with the flight services and any issues with ??? Great chance to hear from you.
I drove my boat up to Kiana Alaska this weekend. Drove about 250 miles and saw lots of animals. We had to stop the boat 2x to allow strings of caribou to cross the river. Real cool to watch! I will be heading up the Noatak for a second chance to bag another nice bull and I will let you know how we do. The locals are bringing lots of fat caribou back into town and it appears that most everyone will fill the freezer. I saw the craziest thing last weekend. I came across a spot where a number of bulls had been butchered on the banks of the Kobuk River. There were between 8-10 caribou heads stuck in the sand by the racks so the tongues could be removed. The locals enjoy the caribou tongues and the often times leave the heads on the beach but to see that many heads in the sand was interesting and some of the racks were huge!
Well keep in contact and lets see how you did!
