New member from Michigan. I've been lurking for about 3 months and I have to tell you, this site is extremely informative. So, thank you all for that.
My dad and I are avid bow hunters here in Michigan. My dad turned 50 in March and has always wanted visit Alaska. So, I surprised him with plane tickets and licenses.
As much as I know I shouldn't jump right off and ask for advice, I am too excited to hear what you all think of our plan.
We land in Anchorage on September 2nd and we will stay the night. The next morning we pick up the rental car and head to the Russian River.
From there we will be hiking into the Upper Russian Cabin. We have a bit of a disagreement here. I talked to the ADFG Biologist out of, I believe, Soldotna and he suggested to hike in from Snug Harbor Rd and I tend to agree. My dad wants to see the river so he wants to hike in from Sterling Highway.
Other than some generalities I have gleaned from this site (get up high and glass), that is the extent of our plan. We have 10 days to hunt but we are really flexible and wouldn't mind seeing Seward and Anchorage a bit.
Thank you all for the information I have already absorbed from this site. Without it, I'm not sure I would have been confident enough to plan this thing.
