    Cool Wasilla predator hunting

    Hello me and a couple friends are looking to do some predator hunting near the Wasilla area. Was wondering if theres any critters running around that area and was curious if it'd be worth the trip. Any info is appreciated.

    I have done some calling around wasilla but not much around. You may be better off on your side of the Knick river where all those flats are.

    Not much around Wasilla, really not much out the Parks until you get past Trapper Creek then you are in thicker brush. If I had to call within an hour Id head out the Glenn or head to the otherside of Anchorage out toward the Kenai.

    Keep on the Nat Geo show.. Alaska State troopers...

    looks like the medow lakes area is a good place to start

    Mugshot saloon had predators and critters last time I was in that place.

    You might want to do a search on here since coyote hunting/trapping in the Meth-Su has been discussed a few times.

    If I was a bettin man I'd say the beaver and cougar were plentiful but shoddy at best.

    We do not go to the green woods and crystal waters to rough it, we go to smooth it. We get it rough enough at home; in towns and cities; in shops, offices, stores, banks anywhere that we may be placed

    Really tough and gamey meat too from what I've heard tell.

    You just use the old, "Here Kitty, Kitty" call for them, right?
    I guess you could also bait 'em with a half empty bottle of beer.

    I'd set some snares and leg holds.

    the open door of a vette works real good, for a cubby.
