    Default new to moose hunting in mat-su valley

    i'm new to hunting in the valley and would like to hunt moose this year. i don't have a four-wheeler or boat, but i do have a canoe. where are some good places to try hunting? i'm not looking for anyone to give away a secret spot, just curious as to where to start looking. i'm not afraid to hike in a ways.
    any suggestions? thank you!

    Default little sue

    The little sue is a good idea but make sure to give yourself plenty of time to get off the river - go back a mile or so, and find a good bog or open meadow to do some calling. Alot of people hunt that river but very few venture off the river very far - put in some time on foot, and your chance at success will increase alot. Good luck.

    Start at Moose Creek, off of the Petersville Road. Take the canoe down the Moose Creek, to the Deshka and arrange for one of the freighters from the Deshka Landing to take you back there. Pretty cheap deal and you should do Ok, on the upper reaches of the Moose Creek, fewer moose, the further down you go.

    Make sure you have enough canoe and/or pack light... real light. Even a boned out moose is too much for most 16 ft canoes. 18 ft freighters are usually the recommended canoe. Or pick a shorter float and plan on two trips. Canoeing is a good way to hunt though. As noted, getting away from the river a bit isn't a bad idea. Have fun.

    I could be wrong but I thought it was 36 miles from the bridge to the landing.

    Default Mileage

    I could also be wrong, but when I ran my GPS on it 2 times it came out at 56 both times.
