    Default Partner bailed!

    On the eve of this years big hunt my partner bailed! Now I'm in need of a replacement partner, or ideas for a solo. I will not do my previously planned hunt solo due to money and the difficulties of the hunt. So if anyone has any ideas and/or time for a hunt please shoot me a pm! I have starting tomorrow afternoon through next Friday. I have amy legs and a truck (my buddies tundra that i cant offroad in) and im willing to drive up to 3 hours. Thanks in advance.

    I guess I should mention I live in Anchorage and have a goat hunt in mind. I'll go solo but would prefer not too.

    Really you only have two options. The Lake George or 20 mile registration hunts. Unless you have scouted it or have $$ to fly in you will spend the entire time you have off just trying to access Lake George on foot. 20 mile may be marginally more accessible but again you should probably have already scouted your access at this point. There is a reason they can have registration goat hunts so close to town and it's because those animals are darn hard to get to!

    Matt. The hard reality is that when your a serious hunter, partners will bail on you. Just don't allow the same guy to bail on your twice. I have done many solo hunts over the years and anymore I just plan them that way and if someone else shows up then we go together. Get a dog.......they never bail. Duckdon

    Well I have a dog I would have taken a few years ago. And the thought is very appealing to me. Honestly I believe a lot of times my pup would be better company then most people (she doesn't talk/stomp/whine up the trail). But my little girl is to old now and has been showing signs of arthritis.

    Back to the original posting my wife kinda of stole a few days back from me and we are going to take the family to Denali thanks to some friends of ours. ThenI have a few ideas I would like to play out. Thanks for the messages and If anyone is dying to tell me another spot I'm all ears! I promise I'll keep it a secret! Haha

    Its probably better you changed plans to Denali, dont think I would take a Tundra on anything manly like a hunting trip anyways as they are more suited to stay on the pavement and stick to mall parking lots. lol

    Hmm....I'll be sure to wash the blood out of the back of my Tundra so that it fits in with what it's supposed to be.

    Before taking any of my advice for granted on here research the legal ramifications thoroughly I am not the Troopers nor am I the Judge that will be presiding over your case/hearing. Please read the hunting and sportfishing regulations and feel free to interpret their meaning on your own.

    I am white, but I'm certainly not great. Mediocre at best, but I like my Tundra.

    A slant 6 is still a straight 6 and not a V6. Cool old engines thats for sure.

    What about that manly little blue Focus you like to rock? When you are in the driver seat it makes you look bigger than you are.
