Just wanting some advice and hopefully hear from people that have done the five mile hike. I have searched the forums and got a lot of great ideas and info but most of the things i have read say not to try walking out. My question is what is so different about hiking out past the 5 miles and setting up a base camp or having a fly in drop camp? Is it just the work of hiking thru the tundra or is it hard to find any caribou?
We are going the first week of sept. and will be there 9 days, we all bow hunt and will try getting them with a bow but like the idea of using a rifle if need be. Any advice would be appreciated, thanks Tyler
