    Default Up the Yanert

    Just wondering if anyone has traveled very far up the Yanert trail this year? Also How far is it to the glacier? Seen any caribou? Thanks for the help

    Default Bou

    I have flown unit 16 a lot and I have never seen a bou. I know that there are hunting regs say you can take em but I personally have never seen one.

    Unit 16 is not in the Yanert.

    The Yanert Controlled Use area is closed to motorized vehicles except aircraft for hunting.

    Default On foot

    I was lucky to draw a 20A tag, and was thinking about going up the Yanert. I plan on traveling by foot. I did read it was a controlled area for motorized use in the regs. Anyone flown over 20A near that drainage, or hiked or rode (horseback) up the Yanert lately. Thanks for the help and info.

    I use to hunt the Yanert on horseback quite a lot. The Public Access to control area has an abandoned gravel pit in front of it and the highway access has been blocked off. There are a couple of guides who live there and do not like independents hunting there. It has always been my experience that you need to get back at least 8-10 miles from the road to find moose. You best have your Wheaties if you plan on doing that by foot as you have a lot of elevation change in both directions...

    There is a small chance that you will be able to find a moose closer to the road, but the big boys always use to be way back, closer to the base of Pyrimid.

    Thanks Roger. Yeah I was planning on hunting by foot. I actually drew a caribou tag in that area and am interested in hunting one of those big bodied caribou. I dont dare shoot a moose that far in. any info on bou? Also I have heard the same about the trail and access. It is public tho and I will stay out of thier way, heck they prob wont even see me.
