Hello, I'm coming up for 2008 from Colorado to hunt sheep with my brother (AK resident) He loves to fish and climb just not hunt, out of luck there.
Right now I'm pouring over harvest reports, this forum, and plan to call some people at AKF&G (and just came from the gym)
So here I go,,,,, anyone want to point me in a dirrection on a area? These subunits are still huge, and without physically seeing the area I'm having issues narrowing it down to even a 10-15 square mile area. It will be my once in my life hunt, any info would die with me.
Currently I'm looking at 19, 16, parts of 14, and know we will have more draw areas this coming year, we would like to travel out of or near Anchorage. (of course I'll take my chances in the lottery but it has not treated me well the last 5 years, I know, many have waited longer) We are planning on flying in.
So theres my story, why dont I hire a guide? Cant afford it, and everyone I've had a chance to talk about says to talk with friends, well my friends dont hunt in AK so I'm putting a plea out here.
Do I expect to get handed a pet area of someone's, no, but maybe someone out there, has a line on an area to do some further research into, a good area they don't plan on hunting anymore? any info would be truely appreciated, for someone like me trying to hunt out of state, there are limited resources out there.
Thank for your time, please feel free to PM me,
I have a great deal of knowledge about bighorns and areas here in CO that I would be happy to pass on as well for those who wish to know,
