BILL.... WHats the odds in that area to wack a black bear on that caribou hunt ?!?!

IF me and a couple of buddies go on the Carabou hunt, we'd like a chance at a bear or a wolf too...... ALSO, Are we moved in that 6 day time if the 'Bou's are not in the Area ??! or how does that work..... I think NExt year I'm heading there one way or another ....

Moosie,

Just guessing here, but I doubt they move that deluxe camp. Better go for the standard package, if ya want to move around.

Good luck on your hunt! I'll be trying for Black Bear and Wolves down here in S.E. Alaska this Spring.

Moosie....

Odds on taling a black bear on your caribou hunt are very good. We saw several black bears before my brother-in-law decided to take one. After he got it (7.5' squared and missed the record book by 1/16") we saw several more blacks and 1 grizzly, which was about 400 yards from camp. Plus, several thousand caribou. And this was over a 9-day period.

With all the caribou you shouldn't have to be moved. Just glass and wait. They will come to you. I held out for a moose and blew a 200 yard shot in heavy bush and low light. Then I had to settle for a caribou the last morning of the hunt. The outfitter taxied his Super Cub right up to the edge of the landing strip, where I shot it, and loaded the game bags into the belly pod and off we went back to main camp.

Let me now if you want more detailed info.
