I just returned from a great Caribou hunt out of Kotzebue. We took 4 nice bulls and probably saw 2000 animals. Mike with Ram Aviation flew us out and as usual did a great job. Ram Aviation and Northern Air Trophy (Matt) said that they were both between 95% & 97% successful this year on their Caribou hunts and they had 9 moose horns sitting
there with the smallest one being 61" and the biggest one at 67", all were very nice and makes me want to put in for the drawing next year.
While I was at the airport getting our gear gathered up, there was a lot of talk about how a guide (won't put his name on here yet) that has a lodge on the Wulik river buzzed some hunters in his super cub and landed to harrass them. Not once did he land but twice. It turned out that he didn't like them hunting on "his land" (which is State land) and shook his fist and cussed them out. After taking off he buzzed the Caribou away from them and finally left. Needless to say the State Trooper that handles the fish and game was taking statements from the hunters and getting their photos and video and the Trooper said they were going to cite him for the "hunter harrassement" law. Not long after we saw the FAA there talking to the hunters about him buzzing them with the airplane.
If anyone knows anymore about it or was involved please join in.
Guides gone wild seems to be a growing problem from what I hear!
