Drove up from Anchorage with a group of locals for 2 weeks and got skunked. I shot at one but shot 35 and he was 50. Out of 12 of us there were only 2 Caribou taken and one was with a rifle five miles from the rd. I'm told conditions were very hot and that kept them on the ice fields.
I was distraught after this hunt and hung out in Anchorage for a day before getting remotivated. I still had 2 weeks in Alaska so I decided to try again, this time alone unfortunately, Gas and truck rental broke me.
I got this one the first day up. My first, so its a trophy to me, shot him at 55 yards, he laid down at 67. It was pretty amazing
I was shooting Easton Axis arrows with 3 blade, 100 grain Muzzy's from a Mathews LX
