All, I have been a long time lurker on this site and never posted anything. I have absorbed a wealth of information from all of the great folks on this site. It looks like my wife and I will be fulfilling a decade long dream of making a move to your great state in the not too distant future...probably to the Kenai Peninsula. I would consider myself a good fisherman and an average (at best) big game hunter. What I lack in skill I try to make up for in hard work. I have read a lot of the hunting books recommended by folks on the site. I love to hunt big game and intend to do as much as I can when we move. I am in my early thirties and in pretty good shape so hopefully I have a lot of good memories ahead. I have found as in most hobbies what you NEED vs. what you WANT are usually different and over time and with trial and error you find out what really works for you. My question is for those of you with a lot of experience hunting in Alaska how would you go about getting in the action as quickly as possible? I realize your state is vast and that there are all sorts of environments and species but I'd like to maximize my time and opportunities in the field without bankrupting myself. How would you do things differently if at all if you were starting over hunting in Alaska? What advice do you have for a rookie? Would you buy a salt boat, river boat, ATV, raft, charter planes, ect.? Would you simply gas up the truck park and walk, a lot? Something else? Any insights would be appreciated.
