Big Kahuna in Alaska

I was just going through to see if there were any other caribou stew recipes out there before I thought about posting mine. Yours is very similiar, all the same ingrediants as mine, double the stock and potatoes/carrots,(much bigger pot I build I would suspect), except I do not use garlic in my stew recipe, and instead of rosemary and thyme, I have discovered that summer savory is the perfect seasoning to a great stew, try it sometime.
