Nome caribou
Posted by martentrapper on Oct 06 2003
There are so few caribou on the Seward Pen./Norton Sound region in summer and early fall I doubt anyone, Guide, Native, hunter, even ADF&G knows where any are at a given time. Perhaps that is why the yupik man was so surprised. I am curious what is meant by the words," strain in their eyes and pain in their wallets".
Coincidentally, I landed at an old DEW line site on the eastern Sew. Pen. in late Sept. and ran into a guide I occaisionally work for with a similiar size party of hunters that were after caribou. I heard they never did get any. Many folks in rural Ak. find all guides disreputable. Luckily, one persons opinion does not always make for the truth.
Of the 13(I think) villages served by Nome commuters, only 2, Unalakleet and White Mt., allow importation of alcohol. If this particular party of hunters was not travelling to one of those villages, and they really did have cases of alcohol, they, as well as the air carrier, should have been reported to the State Troopers.
