Cabelas/ weatern arctic herd
Posted by martentrapper on Apr 21 2006
Like I told the last guy. If this is your first of many alaskan hunts, give Cabela's a try. It is as good a place to start as any. Stay in Alaska a couple extra days and try and get more familiar with the hunting biz here and who is offering what.
If this is your once in a lifetime Alaskan dream hunt, you may want to do more research on your own. Maybe try a hunt planner who actually lives in this state.
As to hammering the western arctic herd into depletion, there are some differences between the WACH and the mulchatna herd. The mulchatna herd peaked at something under 250,000 animals. The WACH currently numbers over 400 grand. Access to the mulchatna herd was from many points surrounding the herds range. The mulchatna herd area has many landing spots for bush planes, and few land owner restrictions. The WACH is mostly only accessed from Kotz, or Bettles. Land status, and safe landing spots prohibit access to the herd over much of it's sept range.
The WACH will most definately crash some day. That is most likely inevitable. I think it is doubtful the human take will be a major reason for the crash tho.

Hope you have a good hunt.
