Thin Ice gets the best of 'em......Maby 1inch thick and stable, but not good for Caribou......it also helps to have snowshoes
So why not stroll up (DO NOT stop moving) and pop a couple??
Then a rope about the neck, all the while walking circles around, get about 90 feet away, or as long as your rope allows, and pull 'em slow and low.......ease 'em up and out.
took 'em both, one at a time to the sled, which was parked on landfast ice and skinned, gutted , butcher'd.
Tossed the rockhard skins, and heads and the stripped backbones, but the meat had fat...was awsome "Chicken fried"
'Bout 1-1/2 hours from Chilled to frozen...and onto the short trail home.....
