    Boot Recommendations for North Slope Caribou Hunt

    Good ankle fit hip wader is a must. Spent 10 days on the slope, and wore hip waders 80% of the time. I took a pair of Meidnl with gaiters, be sure to treat the leather generously before going. Sent from my SM-G981U using Tapatalk

    Hold on to your GMU 23/26A Shorts boys

    The local/subsistence hunters have the largest impact, and my understanding is they don't report. Non residents are restricted to 1 bull and a season that runs, what 2 months? Villagers killing cows and calves, year round, with almost no restrictions, chasing them in boats, snow machines, etc...

    Take this elsewhere it's way off topic. Sent from my SM-G981U using Tapatalk

    Yep, we are developing a contingency plan to float thru the area where we are primarily wishing to drop camp. Sent from my SM-G981U using Tapatalk

    It means you had better call in on the date and express why it shouldn't be closed. Sent from my SM-G981U using Tapatalk

    Yeah I understand that, but thr impression moving forward from last year, was this regulation cycle it was going to be a done issue for awhile. Sent from my SM-G981U using Tapatalk

    Forgive me, what implications do you think this may have for next seasons regulations in 23 and 26A? I'm not entirely familiar with all the politics in that circle, just a general knowledge of the posturing of seasons past. A group of us has a keen interest, as we are booked to fly into 26A in...

    Kodiak BLacktail 2020 and Fish video

    We went to the west side of Kodiak last year, despite the hard winter kill we decided to go for it regardless. It was a huge learning curve and first time to Kodiak, 2 of us had been to Alaska previously in 2018 on the North Slope chasing caribou. West side, specifically Zachar Bay is...

    How do Caribou react when shot?

    Mine stiffened up and spun around in a circle about 5 times and then tipped over. They seem to give up pretty easy, nothing like whitetails.

    Early Sept vs Late Sept - Western Arctic Herd 23/26A

    Probably because 2022 is mostly, if not all booked up or reserved by now. I locked up a hunt for 2022 earlier this year and most spots were already sewn up. Covid restrictions and lockdowns last year, and the word getting out on DIY Caribou via AK, has increased demand like crazy.

    Caribou Meat

    I think the earlier the better meat from bulls. Caribou meat is excellent, and I'm sure there would be debate on which is better. Ive had both and like them both, I found my caribou from late August was better and more tender than elk I've had. Allegedly, the closer to the rut you get, the meat...

    North Slope Boots

    Yep, and most places on the slope, you will be crossing braided streams and drainage where you'll need more than boots and gaiters. Sent from my SM-G981U using Tapatalk

    North Slope Boots

    Took a pair of meindl with me last time, and ended up living in hip boots. If you can stay on gravel, you'll be ok with good boots and gaiters, otherwise get an ankle fit pair of hip boots. The pic.....those that know, know! Lol Sent from my SM-G981U using Tapatalk
