I've hunted the two rivers you'll be hunting 4 times since 2011.   If you have any specific questions, feel free to PM me.   Bugs usually aren't bad in late August or early September but can be if the temp is above 50.  Make sure your rain gear is quality rain gear!  Are you rolling with the guide service that works that area or going in with friends?

Thank you!  PM returned, we are going with guide that works that area.

Anyone recommend a good spotting scope for this trip?  I've never had one before and would like to get some recommendations.  Thanks in advance!

I have a bunch of green stamps and food stamps!  :)  I'd like to keep it at $600 or less....preferably less...but I don't want to drop $400 to $500 on something that is really nice looking junk...


P.S.  Purchased my Alaska Hunting License, 7 Day Fishing License, Caribou and Wolf Tags today!!  :) :)

Some of the areas you dont need a wolf tag. Its like a depradation zone. There free to residents and non-residence. But you got yours now so too late i guess

I don't think this area is one of those, but I could be wrong.  if anyone knows please let me know, the other three guys have not yet bought their tags...maybe I can save them a little bit of money.

When we hunted up there 10 years ago you needed a tag. But not sure now.

I was able to track the information down.  Where we will be hunting a tag is required.
