    Talking JBER DM428 Draw :-)

    I guess I must be doing something right...drew one of 10 fall JBER tags :-) I'm already ready! Blew out my Superior Patella Tendon before Thanksgiving, so I'm working extra hard on rehab post surgery...need to be in bike shape soon!

    I got drawn for that tag this last season and was fortunate enough to get a small bull. I'm stationed at JBER so I think I had a pretty big advantage. I scoured that entire area this last fall so if you have any questions feel free to message me. It's a great hunt and probably the fastest pack out I've ever done

    I will :-) I drew DM 427 13 months ago, so I know the Ft Rich side pretty good. This one appears more Elmendorf though.

    I drew 427 and got a cow Jan 2015. It was a fun hunt, but lots of crunchy/noisy snow made it a hard hunt. At that time of year, the moose love to run into the woods about 30-40 yards and "freeze", so you have to keep looking and looking. I used a bike every day, come snow or shine, and it worked great. Best of luck to you.

    About 20 days. I think there were only four of us who were successful that season.

    Good tag Roger! I drew it 5 years ago and my wife drew it 2 years ago. That is a fun hunt!

    I drew the late tag many years ago. Hunted in sub zero weather. Crunchy snow. Finally nailed a cow not far off the road on a steep hillside Below the road. Used some halibut ground line and a block to drag it whole up to the road and then a comealong to get it into the back of my truck. Love getting them home whole. This one was frozen solid by the time I made the long drive back to Nikiski.
    Hunt Ethically. Respect the Environment.
