My 2008 Brooks Range hunt consisted of blowing my knee out on the second day in (surgery one month later), but did end up with a couple of caribou. Passed on a small bull moose and a couple of gorgeous, but immature, grizzlies...
Great hunt, though. Enjoyed every second of it.
Congrats to you.
Congratulations on a great looking ram! You can tell by your smile you werent very happy him!
Who did you hunt with or where you self guided?
must have been guided as one is required for non res hunters, if he flew in in a Helio, had to be Brooks range avaiation out of Bettles Ak....Not a guide only an air service.

maverick, if you know anything about Alaska, then you know that helicopters are NOT used to transport hunters or their gear. Any guide or experienced hunter knows this. And if I knew anything about aircraft other than supecubs or beavers, I would know what a helio is! Disregard my comment and accept my apology please!!!This message has been edited.

Non-guided, I am a resident of Alaska! I flew with Frenchie (Circle Air) out of Central, Alaska.
Here's my 2009 dall ram...
Oh that is a hawg!!! Nice work...
Maybe tell us a little more about that Nosler Rifle too. How do you like it? I took a real close look at one of those before having a custom rifle built a couple years ago.
