    Default Grouse hunting Main Post

    Has anyone hunted grouse, ptarmigan, or hare on main post of Ft Wainwright? I'm going to be heading out there this weekend to try and get some with my .410. The area looks like it should hold a lot, I guess we shall see in the morning. I've always used either a .22 or #4 shot for the birds and bunnies, but think I might go with #6 shot with military housing in close proximity to where I will be hunting.

    Well, If anyone here is on the fence about hunting main post. I can confirm that there are plenty of hare and grouse around. I was able to get a couple, and saw plenty of rabbit and fox tracks around. #4 shot in the brush was the ticket, clean pass through with the .410 and almost no damaged meat. I think I may take my 4 year old with me as soon as he gets over his cold. If anyone is interest in hunting main post fort wainwright, let me know, I'm happy to share some information.
