I was born and raised in Anchorage and just got into hunting over the last year while Tyler is from WA and has hunted all his life there. I'm moving back in a few weeks and would like to pursue hunting for just about anything (personally stand offish on bear or wolf, but Tyler probably isn't). Whats the best way to start hunting in a completely new area for something you've never hunted for before?
Personally, I'd like to find someone to become friends with to show me the ropes, or maybe just some advice on where I'm able to hunt, if I should get a guide the first couple times for moose, where to hunt for hare, ptarmigan, etc. Thanks for any and all advice!!
