    Default Looking for new spots to hunt grouse around Wasilla

    I'm looking for some new areas to hunt grouse around Wasilla. Too many people and homes in my old areas. Any suggestions other than Hatchers Pass & Point McKenzie?

    Good judgment comes from experience, and a lot of that comes from bad judgment.

    Sad truth is the valley is little anchorage now days. The areas "near" anything are heavily guarded secrets. Often they are marked no treaspassing even though the are legaly passable easments into pockets of huntable forest. Either you get used to going to the borough and doing the research or you do what most of us are doing. Pull out a good map or google earth and the regs and start looking at areas with less population and a little farther up the road. Willow, Talkeetna, Sutton, Chikaloon etc. Knik river is doable if you are willing to go way back into one of the northern drainages (Friday, Metal, etc) but you need an ATV for that. I am even considering driving on up to the Cantwell area for bunnies. Sorry I don't have a better answer for you..

    Check out Maud rd in Palmer. Walk around the lakes. You should jump up some birds there.
