    Default Spring Bou Same Day Hunts

    Does anyone still do these? Just curious, it may already be a thread and I simply didn't look hard enough.

    I do.

    But I live the Caribou life......

    Wake up, eat Caribou, go hunt, catch Caribou, snack on frozen or dryed Caribou, go home with said Caribou, eat Caribou roast and never wonder "Why" I need to do it again..... but I certainly will, year round..

    So are you gonna hunt Winter Caribou??

    would you mind PMing me about it? I'm curious about it and considering doing it next year. I'm relatively new to Alaska (2 years) and would like to consider it as an option.

    Google Natron Air out of Soldotna.

    Default A couple years ago

    A buddy and I did a winter fly and shoot hunt with Natron a few years back and had a blast. We ended up getting five all together. Not the most challenging hunt I've ever been on but a good time none the less. You do know it will be a meat hunt right? Most if not all the bulls will have droped their rack by then, but one trip and over 500lbs of bou was worth it to me.

    Yeah, I know it's purely a meat hunt. Which is mainly why I'm interested. What are the months in which a same day fly-in bou hunt happen? I have to ask that as I'm looking at a possible deployment in the spring.

    and now you know why there were so many people out hunting in the valley a week early this year... Not to say that this gentalman would have headed over there and started busting bou w/ out checking. I am just pointing out how dynamic our game regs are and that everything can change in a season, heck many things can change DURRING a season

    not only true but a major understatement...

    1 bull per 100 cows. and calf recruitment in the single digits... per 100
