Hi everyone. im new to the forum and to alaska (fairbanks).. but i have big plans for hunting everything i can, however I dont plan on getting to do much hunting until i become a resident, but there is no way im going all year without hunting some type of big game. the problem is i have no idea where to start. alaska is huge. haha.
I was wondering if anyone had any info they would be willing to share on areas that have better odds of seeing trophy quality animals. Im not asking for anyones family's secret hunting spot, or anything like that, just looking for any info i can get. i dont want to be limited to the roads, im willing to do what ever to get to a good spot.
also if anyone know of people to contact for flights or boat trips that would be great too.
I was thinking either hunting caribou or moose just for the simple fact that a non res. can hunt them without a guide, so that would help on cost, but im open to any type of hunting. if anyone knows of a hunt i should look into let me know, im open to anything.
just a note: i moved up here this spring for work and im original from the midwest and i have a ton of hunting experience and drive, im not easily scared of a challenge. Im an ethical person and hunter, and i respect every animal i hunt, i am a trophy hunter, but i eat everything i take. i currently live in fairbanks.
thanks for all the help and good luck to eveyone this fall.
