    Default Haul Rd is loaded...

    Saw nearly 2000-3000 caribou with tons and tons of trophy quality bulls. Must have stalked 30 times before the time was right to release some carbon. Shot this bull at 62 yards. He walked with 3 other big bulls about 300 yards and laid down in the willow brush for a final sleep. Pack out was about 1/4 mile (easiest big game pack I've ever done). Had a great time, got about 150 lbs of perfect meat. Weather was freezing at night, snowed once (3 inches), and was sunny most days.

    Get up there if you're contemplating it. The haul rd never disappoints. ...did run into a few other hunters who blew our stalks, but that is to be expected up there...too bad. It can be like combat fishing...just get into the right frame of mind, plan on hiking off the road 1/4 to 1/2 mile out and you've eliminated 3/4 of the hunting pressure.

    Good luck!

    Default Bou chasing

    We stalked some bou around slope mountain, but the numbers there were spotty. 50-80 miles south of Deadhorse, we saw herd after herd come out of the river bottom....all day long. It made for many stalks, about 1/4-1/2 mile from the road. Good Luck!

    I use a Mathews Drenalin that I've been shooting for 4 years. My arrows are Carbon Express Maxima's tipped with 100gr Slick Tricks. I never did recover my arrow because we were then pressed to get my buddy a caribou and took off hastily.

    The penetration was amazing, sharp quarting away shot at 62 yards, walking, with pass through penetration; awsome!

    Good luck catching the herd! My bull sure eats up well....ready for winter.
