    Default New to black bear hunting.

    Hello,

    I just got stationed here in Alaska at FT. Richardson. My name is David and I have been doing tons of research on the bear hunting here and so far the area that I have narrowed down are GMU 7 and GMU 14C. I am looking for someone to go out with and help out with whatever is needed. The regulations are something I have never seen before as where I come from there are not a bnch ofdifferent units. I will be hunting mainly by walking in and have read a bunch on the seward HWY area.

    Any info would be great.

    Looking for info on:

    Seward HWY

    Crescent Creek Trail

    HOPE

    Indian

    Coopers Landing

    Areas around the Eagle river nature center....can't seem to find out if yu can black bear hunt that general area.

    Thanks in advance,

    David

    You can hunt that area (upstream of Icicle Creek), but you must get the registration permit and you must have taken a basic hunter education course. Look at the following link for details:

    Make sure you get the non-resident tags. Looks like you have a good list of places. Pick one and walk around. It might sound simple, but the bears are where you find them.

    Head north to Petersville. Take the road back towards the big mine, once you start passing the waterfalls start glassing. You should be able to see a bunch of bears eating berries.

    Good advice except there are about 40,000 people back there. I just made an attempt at this last week. I spotted a nice boar blackie up really high. Started a stalk, got to the first clearing and noticed the bear spooked. Seemed odd to me since I was well over 1,000 yards out. Took another glass of the hill and noticed 4 other people heading across the base of the hill that spooked him.

    Theres got to be a better way to hunt around here. Its not safe going out in the field with hundreds of other people out there toting guns.
