  • Nelchina Caribou Herd

    I can't find anything on line about how the herd did this last winter and if Fish and Game has done a count. Has anyone else heard or seen anything? It is quite possible I don't know where to look so I appreciate everyone's help.

            Nelchina Caribou Herd

            I saw about 40 between tangle lakes and rock creek heading east 3 weeks ago. The bulls antlers were already standing out against the cows. The bio did tell me that the herd kinda split into 3 mini herds and one of them over wintered between eureka and lake Louise rather than travel northeast. I think this winter should have been a lot easier on then. And the early spring in particular should have hopefully made travel easier for the calves migrating back. The band of about 30 that I saw had to have been 40% calves. It's all anecdotal till they fly the survey and give us real numbers.

              Also, Becky Shwanke quit so Frank is the guy in the Glennallen office to talk to. Whenever there is something official to know, he'll know it first.

                I want to reserve one for my mom. At 75 she is determined to not just let the guys do it and wants one of her own.

                  Does she have the permit already?
