My partner and I will be moose hunting the south side of Tustumena Lake for the last week of Moose season this year and are interested in hearing anyones experiences with hunting that area. Moose or otherwise.
We will be navigating the lake in an 18" Hewescraft River Runner with a 115 Jet. Its not a good rough water boat but it is reliable, has a full canvas top, windshield, bilge pump, and a kicker. I also have a very strong sense of self preservation and that all so uncommon thing called common sense.
Our plan thus far is to travel clear to the east end of the lake and start our hunt in Devils Bay. We want to hunt no more than 1 mile from shore as we hear the terrain is quite difficult for packing. We have planned on hunting the south shore of the lake all the way back to the native land near the mouth of the river if need be.
Anyone have a story to tell, tips or hints to share, locations or areas on that section of land that you have found interesting?
We went clear to the bay west of Big Bay but didn't find any good looking camp spots. I hear there is or was a cabin in Big Bay, and I don't want to camp at the mouth of any salmon streams due to the high concentration of bears. Any thoughts?
