Willow Air is now offering a caribou hunt out of McGrath, Alaska, in the mountains. We will land on a high mountain lake above Timber, where you can spend your days glassing for caribou and bears that are eating blueberries in early September. This area has a small resident herd of caribou that has been increasing in numbers for the past few years with almost no hunting pressure.
We have been seeing some nice bulls while flying over the area. This past season I saw large groups of caribou with some exceptional bulls. This herd has barely been hunted for years, and some great bulls should be harvested. There is also a good population of black bears. Wolves and wolverine also travel these mountains. This hunt is 8 days (7 days of hunting).
