Okay ever since I moved up my Dad has been coming up to hunt in the fall. We had an awesome trip a few weeks ago with both of us tagging a nice grizzly and just generally having a great time catching up and spending time together. Partly I chalk it up to good planning and such as the year before was spur of the moment and went south quick. When him and his buddy that went with us as e were leaving they asked me to start getting ready for next year and making arrangments, after they made it home and talked to the guys about their trip I learned I'll have a coupleextra participants.
This is a good thing as my two uncles and another of Dads pals whoay as well be an uncle are wanting to come up. I really miss hunting with these guys and my older uncle has been talking about a caribou hunt as long as I can remember, so I'm stoked about this as they aren't the kind of guys to back out after saying they're in.
I think the slope is about our only option and I hear alot of success stories from up there so that's what I'm planning on. In the interest of keeping costs down I think taking us in two groups of three in a Beaver
with our gear may work best. The level of comfort we like makes three guys and gear fit pretty good in a Beaver with a little room to spare.
I guess my problem is that the only big plane up there is Coyote Air's , which I don't have a problem with as I hear great reports about them. I just am not sure about the hunting that far south. Most of the reports I see posted are coming from guys leaving from Happy Valley and we probably can't afford six or eight trips in a Supercub.
So if anybody has flown out to hunt with Coyote or anyone else from Coldfoot and has a report I would appreciate it. Also suggestions are welcome if reasonable. I'm going down to hunt with these guys in November and plan to get booked soon after my return.
Thanks in advance guys.
