I am planning an Alaska hunt for 2009. I have read some books and watched this site daily to get as much info as I can. First of all what animal? My first thought was moose at first now I think maybe caribou would be better. I am planning a do it yourself hunt with one other person. We are both in good shape and experinced lower 48 back pack hunters but I realize Alaska is a different environment and kind of want a "get your feet wet" hunt. Any thoughts on animals and an area? We will be going on a budget of say less than $3,000 a piece. Also, is a 300 WSM adequate for Alaska? I see a post from the state website saying Magnums are not worth it and some here saying to bring a .338 or larger. What gives? Also, I will be in Alaska for a week this summer bumming around with my wife anything I can do in that week to help my planning? Thanks for the help!!
