Re: New hunter: Caribou
I just dined on the last of the caribou from last years hunt, unfortunately, NOT my hunt. My Sis and BIL live in Haines and have lived all over the state of AK. They send me a care package every now and then, gotta love'em for that. Not cheap sending a 50# box of meat overnight to TX. I pick up the frght bill though, even if they try to "gift" it. It was taken with a handload 180gr Hornady SST with 55 gr of H4350. ( I've got a great BIL, he hunts, fishes, reloads and takes great care of my Sis ) BIL has had no issues with dropping AK game quickly with a '06. My nephew took his first black bear recently with the same rifle/ammo combo. Rifle is a Kimber 8400 Montana. I still have yet to shoot it, my work trips up there have never coincided with any decent hunting; plenty of great fishing though.
