    Default Gearing up for the Haul Rd hunt

    Well, I am leaving town on Saturday for the slope. Have to pick up 2 friends flying in to FB. We are using Ralph at Deltana again. Always had great luck and enjoy visiting with them.
    Still trying to decide on what boots. I have tried several different combinations in the last few years. Leaning towards hip waders. Crossing most of those braided streams are usually just over my 18"ers.

    Any road conditions or weather conditions anyone wants to share would be appreciated!!

    Went up Wed night and got back Sunday night. Haul road condition was pretty good with road construction just north of Coldfoot. Weather was 50 to 60 and cool at night. Times it rained; other times it was blue skies. I noticed the rivers are running a little higher. The area has been getting more rain than usual. Bro and I both connected on nice caribou; and we flew out about 50 miles.
