I've hiked a bunch of miles in that area and talked with local longtime residents and so far I have not met anyone who has ever seen a caribou up there. There is a herd (reportedly) but seeing them is about as likely as seeing a cougar. Still it is a wonderful area to hike around. Don't hesitate to go there if you get an opportunity.
In 2008 there were 32 caribou... So needle in a hay-stack for sure, but i rather try and fail.... then not try at all.
I've ridden horses out of gypsy meadows and around thunder mtn several times without seeing caribou, there's reportedly a wolf pack in that region also. if I was looking for the caribou and assuming their not all ate, I would consider two mouth lk in the Idaho selkirks. scramble the nearby granite for spying. much less traveled and more remote but also more likely to see caribou and mr grizzly. keep us posted when you get closer to a plan.
