All right folks I'm asking for some pretty specific direction here. I'll be in the Anchorage are from (9/17-28). I'm coming from an EXCELLENT hunting state (Montana). I have a bighorn sheep tag here as well as an antelope tag. Of course I'll be able to hunt elk, deer, upland birds, waterfowl, etc under my general license (both archery and rifle (essentially from 9/1-12/30)and I will be doing alot of both!). (You Alaska folk think you have it pretty good!)
The latter part of my trip up there (and I've been there (i.e., Prince of Wales and throughout the Interior...albeit not for hunting) before for work and fishing but not hunting) is what should I do? Should I hunt or fish? I'm very happy filling my cooler with silvers from the Kenai but am wondering if I'd be missing out on something I can't do down here in Montana.
I hope you understand my dilemna....
I'm a very self-sufficient hunter/angler and a professional wildlife biologist and don't have the finances (necessarily) to hire guides (unless someone would like to work out some kind of local knowldege sort of trade).
thanks for any low-budget thoughts!
