    Default Juneau Hunting Basics

    I am going to be working in Juneau this summer. Originally from the Anchorage area, I have never been doing in the southeast as far as Juneau. I was hoping to hook up or get some basic ideas from people hunting in the area. It is just a summer job so I wont have a vehicle with me, so anybody have any ideas about good places to go that I can access from the road systems? Any help would be good help. Thanks.

    Powder Monkey- Thanks for the offer, I actually have to head back to school at the end of August. Really appreciate the offer. Do you know any quick ways into some possible black bear areas?

    Almost anywhere you go around town holds blackies - we have a pretty big bear problem in the summer with garbage and such - However there are a few areas that hold more bears than others - You pretty much just have to get outside the city limits a little bit and just look for that kind of "Bear country" and you'll find them.

    Reading some past threads... is hunting just outside of city limits creating problems with anti-hunters? I am used to getting a ways away from anyone else before even thinking about pulling the trigger.

    If you are here in August you can climb any number of trails on Douglas Island and hunt in the alpine for deer. Also be on the look out for grouse and ptarmagin.

    Usually hunting just outside the city isnt a problem as long as your not on the trails - Regs require you be off a number of trails anyways...
