    If you who have hunted the nelchina herd before had only the first week of the season to hunt it and a 4 wheeler where would your starting point be. Not asking for hot spots just general ideas feel free to pm me

    I'd wait to set a location in stone until I heard the report from Fish and Game that they usually release a day or two before the season opens. I'd also be ready to move locations after the first two days if I wasn't seeing much. Ultimately, caribou are where they are. Last year I hunted on the 13th, and my planned location changed by almost exactly 100 miles between the 10th and the 12th based on hunter reports. A friend that went in on opening day to the location I had planned to hunt saw two caribou in three days. Meanwhile, we saw 300 caribou in the first four hours of hunting. Be flexible and you will do well.

    geoff: You're on the right track.

    There are trails and controlled use areas. Look through the regulations. Maps for the TLAD can be found online. Maps (with more detail) of the controlled use areas can be found at the F&G website. Read the regulations and restrictions for the various areas.. and then read them again ... and again. Everytime I read them, it seems like I learn something new or develop a different understanding.

    Wasn't sure what TLAD was but found it and here's the link to the trails brochure:
