I am planning a future hunt to the North Slope. I will be hunting for 21 days or longer if that's what it takes. I am just starting to do my research and am finding that Alaska is bigger than I ever imagined. I am not looking for handouts or anyone's hunting area. As far as that goes I prefer being as far from another person as possible when I'm hunting beside a partner.
I know nothing about the Caribou migration, their movements or the best time to hunt them. I would like to know if they stay in the region or are they resident? Is one area better than another? These are all things I need to learn. I hope to be hunting moose as well. Can do both in the same area at the same time? I'm not sure if it would be best for me to do a float hunt for Moose and Caribou or on foot. I will be dropped by air taxi at the location I settle on.
I have hunted the Rockies for several years and the Olympic peninsula and have been in some great country. To me the hunt is not about the kill but the magnificent beauty of the country that I get to enjoy while hunting, I am never disappointed no matter the outcome of the hunt!
Any info is greatly appreciated. Thanks, Frankie.
