OK guys, here's my question for today.
This is based on the premise I land the position in Fairbanks and thus would be hunting that area. Needless to say I know I'll have to buy NR tags for this season/ possibly next and will hunt under the attendant restrictions. That's OK, I wouldn't want to mess with big bears or sheep until I have a couple of Alaskan years experience under my belt.
I have a pilot's license but no aircraft. I do have two very capable 4WD trucks, a decent ATV, a 15'/30HP War Eagle, and a 14'/15HP jonboat (presuming I bring the boats rather than sell them). I also have two pretty good legs equipped with All Terain Feet.
Given the area and my available transportation, how effectively can I expect to hunt big game? Are "day off" type hunts feasible, given the road/trail system (getting into an area by truck/to a trailhead by ATV then hunting in on foot and returning at the end of the day) ? Is it safe to assume moose and black bear would be the extent of the hit list?
Is it unheard of for a couple regular joes with pilot licenses to pool their money to buy an aircraft and form sort of an informal outdoor-guy flying club?...
