    Does this include grizzly hunting, Joe? I didn't see the details on the Ahtna website.

    It's great to see Ahtna proactive on this issue.

    I'd like to thank Ahtna for their recent work on their land management policies and communications outreach.

    Default Brizzly bear

    Predator includes: Brown/Grizzly (Brizzly) Bear, Black Bear, Wolf and Coyote.

    We are also asking any successful hunters to report their bear/wolf kills for effectiveness of this program. Last year we had 9-unconfirmed bears harvested through predator control in the Glennallen area.

    *Local hunter reports of moose populations were also up around units 11-13 as well and are continuing our Willow Browse enhancement projects with ADF&G near Chistochina and over-story removal south of Copper Center.

    Sounds great, Joe! I'm expecting a kid in May, so I don't know how much time I'll have...but I'll certainly try to come up and do my part!

    Default Predator trapping

    Trapping permits are $60.00 for the season.

    Most of the "good" traplines with decent access are already taken.

    We try to honor the old established traplines and trappers.

    Default hunting

    All Ahtna lands are open to predator hunting, including bear baiting however, we do require GPS coordinates of the bait station.

    I am very glad to see that AHTNA is taking truly usefull steps to share their resources with the rest of us. I don't mind a reasonable fee and the maps are great. An online credit card system with a downloadable permit would be a great future step. If you have some decent snow up that way I might just have to head up and try and put a dent in your wolf population! I assume that snowmachines are allowed off the main trails for the purpose of tracking/scouting? Also I was wondering if you have maps that show the trails available to cross along the Denali Hwy?

    Default wolves

    LuJon:
    Working on getting an on-line credit card and permit system in place.

    Snow conditions near Glennallen and Cantwell are fair to good; river ice conditions vary but there was quite abit of overflow earlier this month, now see some open leads evidently due to the recent warm temps.

    Reports of large wolf numbers in the Kenny Lake/Tonsina areas, alot of BLM, State and Chugach Native Corp land there too.
