Duluth man dropped in Alaskan bush for 1st caribou hunt

Email

DULUTH, Minn. -- The first hint of gray had seeped into the Alaskan landscape on a September morning last year when Mike Schrage left his tent. He was alone on the land.

He pumped life into his camp stove and had begun boiling water for his breakfast when he saw a small band of caribou moving up the valley of the Salcha River. That's what Duluth's Schrage had come for.

"I threw up my binoculars," Schrage said, "and I thought, 'Holy buckets, there are bulls in that group.'"
