Hello, me and several other buddies are going to try moose hunting this fall, none of us have ever been before. One of the areas we were thinking about was Delta Junction, specifically DM798, which you can find a map of here:
We choose there since the cow permit draw has a decent sucess rate, ~20 percent or so. My questions are, has anyone here hunted that specific area before? What is the terrain like? How prevalent is private property in that area and how easy is it to avoid? Anything I shold know about the area?
We also may or may not have access to a 4 wheeler/argo ect, how feasable would it be to hunt this area without one? We will have at least 4-5 people to share the load to hike out on foot if the terrain is reasonable for hiking.
I also put in for permit draws for North Matanuska river, i.e. Sutton and King River area, due to the prevalence of truck accessable areas, and Peters Creek due to it's closeness to Anchorage and the possibility of packing out meat with a bicycle and wagon. Sound like good choices?
