Consultant: Russ Meyer | OUTDOORS INTERNATIONAL

Dream hunt of a lifetime in the books here!

We did get a little bummed off the start as we were delayed (2) days due to bad weather. We did finally get into the field on Sunday, 8/15. Caribou and bear spotted above from our flight in. We set up camp and glassed and came across about 8 caribou. We ventured back to camp, got some rest and went back out to find another group. Our 1st true/legal hunting day (3) of us had all seperate hunts. Two with rifle and another with bow. We then had our hands full with packing them out!

The 2nd legal hunting day we spotted a group of (3) caribou that we managed to stock and our 4th and final hunter tagged out. We also ran into about 15 grizzly bear on our trip!! To top it off we caught some tasty lake trout and cooked them over a fire and had a little fish fry!
