Caribou (dots on lower right) grazing by moonlight in front of the Brooks Range. I think they are eating the tasty vegetation in the long-term fertilized research plots. This was about 10:30 p.m. last night. Temp was around –5°F.

They are very focused on eating and rarely look up.

This one must have an itch or something.

Update (5/4): Saw a herd running today.

  2. Absolutely amazing pictures — makes me want to get in a plane and come up and see them, the caribou, that is.

  3. Despite Michigan’s economic woes, plus a numebr of other negatives contained in the state, the plus side is that we do have an abundance of available wildlife to hunt.I think I’ll have to “scratch all my local itches” first before I head on off to a foreign land. But I completely understand where you’re coming from.The unknown definitely adds to the adventure.
