    Default Mulchatna caribou hunt ?

    I need some help. I have some friends that want to hunt caribou and they are non-residents. We want hunt the mulchatna herd. But there are only a few areas that are open to non-residents. Would it be possible if the herd moves into an area where they can hunt it would be worth their time to fly up asap to hunt over there?

    Thumbs down I ain't kiddin

    No.
    (really well covered and discussed in the archives)
    I hope the Mulchatna herd recovers within your lifetime. I have been out there hunting brown bears and everything else that is legal for the last 14 years. And the caribou hunting is dead-dead-dead. And I ain't kiddin.
    No north. Again, I ain't kiddin.

    I thought they closed it down completely?

    almost brings tears to my eyes. got my first bull(s) caribou out there near the bonanza hills.

    don't know about the regs. your information on this herd is probably 10 years old.

    Default yep

    Yep.

    Vince and andweav are 100% correct.
    GMU 17 is closed completely for nonresident hunters, and has been for several years.
    And within my lil piece of (what once was) paradise, the last little seasonal migration came through in 2003.
    And I have not saw a "resident" 'bou on the hills since 2006.

    The caribou trails, once 8 and 10 inches deep in the tundra, have grown over with regular old green tundra stuff and blueberry bushes. When my 1990-something caribou hunters return for a 2004+++++ brown bear hunt, they just can't believe the absence of caribou. Where they used to see a few thousand per week, we now see none.
    Hell this is depressing. I got to kill somnething...going out brown bear hunting/guiding on Thursday!

    Go NORTH, before it gets screwed up (more).
