Finally I have a chance to sit at the computer long enough to tell my story. First I want to thank everyone here on this forum who has helped me over the last two years of planning this hunt from scratch. I have learned so much from this place especially about equipment to buy, flight service to hire, and taxidermist to use.
My best friend Chris and I flew out of Tok with Leif and Randy with a less than enthusiastic caribou forecast from the 40 Mile crew. They had not been seeing many caribou, and the ones they had been seeing were spread out and in small groups. They really had never seen it that bad before.
We flew out on Thursday August 21st. They went the extra mile literally. Even in these times of high gas prices. To try and put us in what Leif felt might give us the best chance at bou, he carried us way north to Yukon Charlie Rivers Wildlife Preserve. The area was beautiful. The prettiest place I have ever seen.
