Default Caribou help

I have done some looking around and have found that Ralph, Vicki and the Posse are the authorities on hunting for caribou. I have booked a hunt with Safari Nordik for this September, this will be my first guided hunt and was wondering if you could give me some hints. Knowing what you know now what would you have done different on your first caribou hunt? What piece of equipment would you have brought, what would you leave behind. Along with watching your Cruising for Caribou I have watched every thing about caribou that I can get my hands on. My plan is to hunt with a 300 wsm first than tag out with my bow. Is this a good plan?I will be driving to Montreal, any advice for the border. What needs to be done with my caribou to make it back across, Safari Nordik says that they will handle all of this, just wondering if there is something that I can do to make this whole hunt go smoothly. Thank you for any help that you can give. I plan on see Ralph and Vicki at Cabela's in Dundee Michigan, what time of day are you going to be there?

I may not be a posse member, but I too went on my first caribou hunt a couple of years ago. As far as hints go, good (and by good I mean dry and warm) footwear, rain gear(even for days it's not raining to help cut the wind), comfortable binocs(you are going to use them all day every day), and laser range finder. The landscape is totally different than anything I'd hunted in before and distance it tough to gauge.

I personally think bringing a backup to your bow is important. They are wild game and not everything is like a hunting video. There may be days where you can't seem to buy a caribou. And when you do there may be a trophy of a lifetime that is traveling parallel to you at 200 yds and you have no opportunity with your bow. Where we were, it wasn't impossible with a bow but the rain and snow fell sideways every day. I think the wind slowed to about 30 miles per hour one day. But, like the bou it never stopped and only temporarily slowed down in it's travels. Bring a camera and just enjoy! You will be hooked for a lifetime.
