I have friends in Anchorage and Wasilla and they are enjoying their time in Alaska but I think my Weatherby collection deserves some Alaska time but stuck here in the high desert of NM. My friend in Colorado has been limiting out every day recently on 18" and above walleye's and he is trying to Elk hunt and fish at the same time and the fishing is winning that battle as the keepers are hard to catch in the reservoir he fishes . Sounds like fishing is a lotta fun as my friend has invited me up as he has an Argo and a big float boat and he needs someone to help him and we both are originally from Arkansas! Lotta fishing experience as I was growing up and hunting as well, my BIL only eats venison all year long in southern Arkansas!! you get 6 deer per person and his whole family hunts so his freezer is full and the sink has deer meat in milk just about every night :| :mrgreen:
I feel a TGR could be in the cards as I picked up a catalog recently but no place has any to look at so I guess a special order will be a must? $$ :grin:

The only place I've seen TGRs in stock is Sportsmans Warehouse…and only one at that.

I'm sure Shawn can put you on one though.

Yepper that young man has been speaking with me for sure and I have seen 3 at Sportsman's but I think I will go with wood as I am low on wood and like their wood a lot :) Sportsman's can't sell them here in NM for 1999.00 ??

2014 got off to a good start.

Perhaps the best (or worst) shot of my life. 350 yds... 45-50deg uphill angle. 10 minutes to dark.

First shot hit the liver, 2nd shot after the caribou took of running hit the spine and dropped her like a rock.

Those are the types of reports we all enjoy reading. Hey, I'd rather be lucky than good any day. :grin: Most luck comes from practise, practise, practise.

Very nice! Gotta love the early start on filling freezers. What's up next Hodgeman?

Caribou in your area would by now have the word spread that coming near your coordinates is unhealthy for them ! But good for you as I am guessing that it makes a fine compliment to 40 weight gravy? :) fried tatters!

I agree... I've got a lot of confidence in the rifle and that helps. I've got a Browning .270 that is actually a "more accurate" rifle...that I'd never have tried the shot with.

Sounds like I need a Nosler rifle in some variation myself. Now if they would chamber in 6mm Remington, it might make by heart flutter!! I'm just saying Nosler, are you folks listening. Even if you don't chamber for it, it would be nice of you folks to turn out brass and loaded ammunition for this very classy caliber!! :mrgreen: :grin:

Very nice caribou and write-up!

I couldn't resist a 6mm Remington with a 1-8 twist in a Nosler Patriot either David. I think it'd be a super rifle for a lot of hunting. I am very surprised they haven't listed it since the 257 is there. Wouldn't take much I bet.

Hmmmm! David may be onto something. Yeah, I could be enticed, I suspect.

Well the hunting heated up and the caribou finally started moving....Image

For my well worn Nosler...this big cow at 150yds from prone on a pressure ridge represented something of a "chip shot". Bang...Flop.

I'm curious guys, how do caribou compare to other wild game? Anything similar? From what they eat I would think they would be very mild.

The other wild game that I most compare them to are elk- very mild, very lean and fine grained. Far milder flavored than whitetail deer and far finer grained than moose or mule deer.

That statement does not apply to bulls in rut- those are inedible. I often talk to people who report they hate caribou and almost every one shot a giant bull in late Sept. <bleh>

My one caribou so far was a medium sized bull shot in late August and it is some of the very best meat I have ever eaten regardless of species. Like was said above problems arise when bulls are shot in the rut.

Nice setup Hodgeman, great report on the rifle and delicious caribou steaks each year as well!
