Very nice caribou. We were in a different boat wreck but he told us all about your guys wreck although your story probably has a lot more truth in it. You must have hit the bank hard.

  Well you guys have pretty well said everything that I would have about the trip. There were definitely some things that fell short on the other end. On top of that the migration was late and the weather was terrible so that made for a tough week. We had a high water situation that made travel extremely dangerous and almost cost us our camp. We returned from a long day of hunting and packing meat to find that the river had eroded 15 plus feet of high bank leaving our tents literally hanging over the edge of the raging water. That was quite the surprise not to mention we were already wet and totally whooped so having to break and move camp in a squal wasn’t real fun. The river claimed some of our gear, fishing poles and some sheds that we had picked up as well! In the end we did kill a few bulls and made some great memories. I will say that Ryan worked his ass off for us and even moved us to a new location about half way threw the week, he had a tough season up there filled with some bad luck so I feel for the guy, but better communication and organization would have went a long way imo. Oh....and god put deadhorse at the end of the world for a reason ;)

Sounds like an experience.  I've been wanting to go back to AK for a caribou hunt but from what I have read here and in the past, I might be quite disappointed when comparing it to my 1993 hunt.  I did a float plane drop hunt, all gear our own, north of Iliamna.

Thanks for all of the detailed write-ups.
