Default Caribou late season discounts?

I was talking to a guy the other day and he said if you go hunting caribou in the late season the price drops drastically. He said instead of like $4500.00 for 2 caribou you could go for less than a $1000.00 for 2 caribou. Anyone else heard anything like this or have any leads?

I don't mind getting cold and atleast the bugs would be froze off.

I have seen that to be the case in some of the hunt brochures. November Caribou hunts are really reasonable.

The main difference is that in the late hunts you drive up...Long drive on a road of ice... Some guys like it.. It is possible to get a decent bull, but it's basically a meat hunt, because a lot of the adult bulls have dropped antlers....Colder than a well digger's butt...Many guys just drive up and shoot them from the road...

PYGMY, hit the nail on the head. The hunts are cheaper, long drive on the ice roads, and almost all bulls have shed thier antlers. Would make for a great meat hunt though.

Yes, late December and early January hunts are half the price of a November hunt. But I usually go late December. If you bide your time and look, there are still some nice bulls around. Because you can always wait till your last day and shoot the ones that don't have horns anymore.
