I'm planning a Caribou hunt for unit 23 out of Kotzebue and was hoping to get some advice.
1) Hunting dates: An aviation services mentioned that the last few seasons have been warm and that caribou hunting around late august/ early september was tough. Was this an issue for other hunters and if so what are some dates I should look at?
2) Regulations: I have some people in my party that want to bow hunt and some that want to rifle hunt. I've read the regulation and haven't noticed any issues with mixing methods of take, are there any restrictions I should know about?
3) Transportation: Is there any aviation services that anyone can recommend for archery hunting Caribou for unit 23?
I appreciate any who take the time to reply. I fish the San Francisco Bay Area religiously so if anyone is planning a trip to the area and would like any information i'd be more than happy to share. Thanks again.
