Overall Impression: great hunt

I went with Lake Clark Air with my brother-in-law. He had used them on several previous occasions, but this was my first Alaska hunt. Two of our group of 4 were after moose and caribou, the other 2 caribou only. We ended up in separate camps because Mark said he had no areas that provided good opportunities for both species. He said the moose population was down, but he did have some located and put us in an area with moose. We sighted a good bull several times, but were not able to get a shot opportunity. We would have had a difficult time getting a moose out of the area where we found them, something to consider before you shoot. After 6 days of moose hunting, we decided to move to a caribou area. We moved to the camp where the other 2 hunters in our party were staying. They had already filled their tags, but my nephew lost his entire caribou (including the head) to bears or wolves. Another thing to keep in mind when hunting Alaska, very few places to get meat and trophies out of reach. Mark and his crew do a good job of checking on their drop camps often and seeing that their needs are met. We saw a lot of caribou and filled our tags with good bulls in 2 days. At his point I have to put in a plug for Mat Valley Meats in Wasilla, AK. They handled my meat processing and do an excellent job. They make the best pepperstick sausage I have ever eaten.
