    Question eagle alaska yukon river

    Can anybody point me in the right direction? Im thinking about taking my 25' wooldridge up to eagle for moose hunting next year. Are there any preferable areas with easy access to the riverbank within 30 to 50 or so miles from Eagle? The closer the better to save on gas though. Thanks

    Make sure you have your gas figured right. It wouldn't be any fun to fall a little short of Eagle on the way back. Another option if you are interested is to put in at Circle. That way if you end up a little shy, you can float back.

    That area is heavily hunted and you will have a lot of company and many camps along the river.

    Default Gas in Eagle

    We just got back from Eagle and gas was $5.50/gallon, cash only.

    GMU 25b has one of the longer seasons for moose in this state. That generally indicates a decent moose population. Consider it an adventure and do some exploring.

    Heck I paid $5.25 $5.50 in Galena 2 years ago for fuel so that isn't bad.

    Smile eagle

    Ive hunted the american summit on atv twice and love the area but id like a more quality experience. I came very close to to getting a moose both times. Once was a moose I ran into just after sundown on the last day of the season and it was to dark to shoot. The other was a huge beast in a deep valley below me that we could have climbed down and shot him but there was no way to retrieve him so we hasd to pass on him. It could have been a 70 incher or bigger no kidding.
