Some of it may depend on who your air service is and from where.  Some work hard and some drop you off in a predetermined spot regardless.  That being said, the best bet is to get to higher ground, which may be relative and glass.  See where they are coming through and try and set up an ambush point.  If they are  in front of you and moving in your direction, then try.  If the animals are to the side of you or behind going away, don't bother chasing them because you will never catch them.  If they bed down, maybe otherwise they move deceptively fast.  If seem to be very sensitiive to seeing movement so be careful.  Remember, cows have antlers too and some can fool first time caribou hunters.
