We are planning a first hunt for our soon to be 10 year old son. We would prefer to do a fly out hunt to the Brooks Range for either caribou, sheep, or both. We have considered making it a fly out - float hunt, but we think that it might be too much for our little guy, so we are sticking with the idea of it being fly out.
I'd like to have advice on:
Has anyone used charters to the Brooks Range and if so, what's your experience? If you had a bad experience, just remember the forum board rules. We will need a charter for 3 adults and one child.
Talk to me about your successes in doing caribou through July to October in the Brooks Range. (October is a given with caribou and bow hunting... I know)
Have you taken your young(er) children with you on hunts and if so, do you have suggestions?
The son will be doing a hunter education course. This will be part of his birthday present as well. We haven't told him. We plan to surprise him until right before the hunt.
I'll be looking forward to your responses. We are looking forward to this hunt. It will be the first big game hunt for our son and we just want to make it as memorable as possible.
Thanks in Advanced!
