    Default Were to hunt brown bears in unit 15 since closeure?? (RB300)

    I currently have a registration tag for brown bear in unit 15 (RB300). since the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service decision to use emergency authority to close national wildlife refuge lands on the Kenai Peninsula to the taking of brown bears. Is this include the Russian river?
    I was wondering if there is know spot were I can go were the hunt will be legal. What does the closure mean?

    Go to the refuge website and look at a map. Anywhere else other than the refuge is still open......
    Sheep hunting...... the pain goes away, but the stupidity remains...!!!

    If you go to the Kenai Peninsula borough website they have a map feature.
    If you use the feature that shows land ownership you should be able to find some open areas. It is hard though as so much of the peninsula is refuge and part of the rest is state parks etc.
    Just be sure to check and if you are looking at state park land check the hunting regs for it.
