    Thumbs up location?

    Don't know where you are at, but the Little Su river from the Parks hwy to Burma landing is a good option. The float itself takes about 3-4 days in a canoe at a leisurely pace. So, if you mix in a few days of walking around type hunting you could make a good 7 day hunt out of it. Get a good map of the river and find some swamps and low areas just off the river (I wouldn't walk more than a mile just in case you knock one down), get the GPS coordinates and go find them. You won't be alone, but it is a good option for an inexpensive hunt.

    Thumbs up Swanson River Canoe Trails!

    I think you'd really enjoy the Swanson River Canoe Trails or the Swan Lakes Canoe Trails, out on the Kenai Peninsula. The entire area is detailed very well in Daniel Quick's excellent book, "Kenai Canoe Trails", which is available on this site.

    One word of caution though. Bring a GPS and know how to use it! Much of that country is pretty flat, and it could be easy to get lost in there. Should be a good moose hunt, and the fishing is great.

    You might want to give the Swanson River canoe trail system a shot, it gets a lot of pressure but if you work hard enough you might get you a moose.
