The area you will be hunting will consist mainly of the Ivishak River drainage and the Echooka River drainage. The terrain consists mostly of treeless, boggy marsh, and tundra covered flats. It is generally low-profile, rolling terrain with some gradually sloping hills reaching up to 800 feet in elevation.
The river bottoms can be brush-choked with willows, but generally visibility is extensive. This region has numerous lakes and the ground has been compared to walking on a lumpy waterbed. In addition to the herds of Caribou, there are over 200 species of birds, including geese, swans, seagulls, ducks and eagles.
Other indigenous wildlife includes several species of fox, ground squirrels, grizzly bears, musk ox, wolves, wolverines and arctic hares.
