    These are a few caribou from this years 2010 hunt. I will get some more on the next post. Best long range friendly guide in Alaska, LTLR. Forum members shot most of the caribou taken this year. As I get there pictures together I will post them if they want. Another very good year.

    Here are a few more. I will get others up as I get them from the guys. We had long range bow shots with Jay and Craig who are outstanding shooters from Louisiana. Long range rifle shots from guys all over and a lot of caribou on the ground. What more can you ask for.

    LTLR-
    Seen a bunch of your posts on the forums and also am addicted to Alaska hunting. I already and lined up for an Alaska hunt this year (Brown bears in about two weeks) but next year, we are looking at Dall Sheep and it is time to start planning now. Do you know of any good areas we can fly into into the Brooks Range and can get on a couple of good rams? If so, PM me please and we can go from there.
    thanks in advance for any info.

    If you are an Alaskan resident I know two guys who fly the Brooks and are good at putting guys on nice rams. Well I know several, two I really like. I flew a good bit with Dave Neal who was the only operator out of Happy Valley for many years. I learned all that country pretty well on the north side of the brooks flying with him. He was killed in a crash a few years back and several guys are in there now since the Mulchatna caribou herd crashed and the guys moved north. There are a couple I would recomend further up in the Brooks.

    If you are looking for an outfitter in the brooks they are taking quite a few rams out of there but to far north for B&C contenders. Just a lot of really pretty rams. Several outfitters hunt the brooks range for sheep with very good success. If you are not into record class sheep Art Hirschel out of Delta Junction offers a very fair priced hunt. He has North Country Outfitters. He has been 100% on sheep most years. He also guides in the delta draw unit and takes some B&C class sheep in there. He can tell you how to apply for a tag there.
