Re: Barren Ground Caribou Hunt By Shawn Carlock
Great read! What did you think of Nome? I flew in 6 Sept, out to camp north of Teller, 7 Sept. Then came back in the 16th and onto Anchorage the 17th. First we stayed at the Aurora Inn, very nice. We came out a day late and they were booked and had to stay at the Polaris. HORRIBLE! Above the Polaris bar, loud, smelly, smoky, etc. You must have been futher East or NE of Nome as we only saw one Caribou on our trip. LOTS of big moose of where in I shot a 62" @ 15 yds with my Ruger Blackhawk in 45 LC. My best friend shot a VERY nice 8-1/2' Grizzly with his Borden Magnum in 300 WSM.
The colors, Ptarmigan, scenery, fishing, wildlife, all were absolutely fantastic!
