Non-residents only please.
Three to Five
Six to Eight
Nine or More
Never, but I certainly plan on it!
Non-residents only please.
NJ Chris - If you can, you might want to amend your poll. There are a lot of non-res forum members that haven't hunted Alaska at all, but plan to in the future. You don't have a choice for those guys.
Brian, Good thought, but it appears my ability to edit has vanished. Any ideas?
i have made 6 trips so far. number 7 coming in chugach state park in sept.
i am looking forward to many more trips in the future. n place i would rather be.
Haven't hunted yet but I was along as a picture taker, observer on a brown bear hunt. Funny thing is I got closer to a bear then the hunter I went with did. They all went on a stalk down the shoreline 2 miles away, while stayed back and watched the boat (tides). As I walk the shoreline back and forth from the boat to my observation point I spooked out a bear, thank God it went the other way because I was unarmed (only camera). Won't happen again.
Chris - I went ahead and added a choice for you. Honestly, I'm not sure if you can edit your own poll or not. On the upper right hand corner of the poll box I see a link that says "edit poll", but this might only be a tool available to moderators. Anyhow, are you good with the wording of the choice I added?
6 total (5 DIY....Caribou / Moose / Black Bear) and one guided Brown Bear
and planning number 7 which will be for Brown Bear this Aug. / Sept.
Akres - Would be kind of odd for a non-res to be reading these boards if they never intend to hunt up here, no?
The poll is for the number of times a non resident has hunted Alaska. What if half of your trips were as a non resident and half were as a resident.

Brian, That's great, thank you for the assist.
PC, Any of your pre-resident hunting trips would count. My guess is a number of the non-resident members would move to Alaska if circumstances would allow.
Only once last May!! The wife bought me a blackie hunt for Christmas and man what a wonderful place you have to live in!! It was a self guided trip with my cousin who lives in Valdez and I actually got some good advise and emails from some of you from this board!! Thanks Hoosierhunter!!
I would dare to say that MAYBE a 5% success rate. Most trips are spent just getting together with resident friends, my trip away with "the guys".
I haven't been there yet, but I have a hunt booked for 11/07 on Kodiak for blacktails.
1st time will be this fall for a 11 day DIY moose hunt. Been planning and researching for 3 years.
Once (2005) - a successful Dall's sheep hunt in the Talkeetnas. Second - a moose drop hunt trip planned for this September. A year off in 2007 and back in 2008.
