Its hard to find good guys to go with. Make sure you REALLY know them and they REALLY like to hunt and they are REALLY tough! Not the place to take chances on someone you cant depend on or trust.

And trust me... there is no gaurentee on a diy hunt in colorado. esp your first one! Getting a good shot at a nice bull even at 300 yards might not turn out to be as easy as you think.. but best of luck its a blast. the learning part is what makes it so fun. but dont leave anyhting to chance!



Amen to that, i would rather go alone, then go with the wrong guys.

A Caribou hunt would be fun, but it would have to be guided, and it would cost $6000.00 plus, so i will stick with my DIY elk hunts.

Bowhunter81 & Kevin,

Why does a caribou hunt have to be guided? I did a DIY caribou bowhunt last August for a lot less. PM me if you want more details.

When i think Caribou, i think about Canada, i never gave AK much thought, but it would still be expensive, if i did it, i would drive so i had all my gear, and could bring everything home. i think that i would have at-least 3K just in gas ?.

When I do get to go on the elk and caribou trips, I plan on doing them DIY style. To me its not all about the harvest, its the experience, getting to meet new people, viewing other parts of the country that I might never get to see and if I do harvest something, awesome. It wound be a nice bonus.

What is the population of Caribou like in AK? I just watched the movie "The Grey". Makes me think twice about going to AK.

Give a man a deer, he’ll eat for a day. Teach him to be a bowhunter, will feed his family for ever!!!!

I spent most of my life hunting, the rest I have wasted.
