Re: Anybody go for Caribou still?
I've gotten 9 caribou so far. 2 Quebec-Labrador, 6 Woodland and 1 Alaskan-Barren Ground.
The prices are definitely up, and I'm not totally sure why they are so high for caribou in some cases. For all that they include,there are places in Quebec that are not bad deals compared to the rest of the caribou hunts. For my money right now, the best bet is Alaska, and not Western Alaska.
The Alaskan 'Bou that I shot was on a grizzly hunt North of Tok. The transporter that we used was 40 Mile Air. They offer do it yourself caribou hunts at a reasonable cost, though even their prices have gone up lately. But it is a doable trip if you have the proper equipment. And the 40 Mile herd is the fastest growing herd in Alaska. If you are patient, there are some whopper bulls in that herd. But it is not a trip for everyone, nor is it a trip for a solo hunter IMHO.
