Next week marks my first opportunity to hunt as a resident, and it looks like the winter caribou hunt will be the only open season if I'm going to do anything before next year. So now that you know I'm a little green at this, you can forgive this dumb question I'm sure. If I try the White Mountain herd north of the Elliot Highway, is the 5 mile restriction in effect traveling out the Elliot or is it only along the Dalton? I'm not sure I want to wander five miles off the road in January or February.
I guess the first question should have been... Is it even worth it to drive up there and look around, or is it too dark and cold for the trouble?
