September – October
Mountain caribou are found in almost every range within this outfitter’s area. Obviously some mountains are more used than others due to the food, mineral, or protection they offer. The former #1 and current #2 Boone & Crockett caribou scoring 452 came from this area. Also the former #1 Pope & Young animal was killed here. There are great genetics in the herd and they take record book bulls every year. In the summer the mountain caribou are usually found above timberline escaping the variety of bugs that torment them. In years past when the insects are minimal they do seem to prefer the timber in August. Like moose, the bulls do move high by the end of the month to protect their sensitive antlers. Their rut starts later and lasts longer than the moose, and calling them in is rather rare so spotting and stalking is the normal method. Once they bunch up in rutting herds of 20 to 50, it is a challenge to evade that many eyes.
