    Default Rm797

    So I am one of the many who will be going up to Delta to try and fill this registration cow tag. I did the draw hunt last year and filled it, but my question is for the unit RM797 is in, is it an off road type of hunt or are there any roads to go back on? I have looked on many maps but can't tell what I should be expecting for this hunt type. Hoping to leave Wednesday and come home sunday. Hoping.... thanks for any info.

    Default Well

    It is definately an off road hunt one could say. No roads in there to get a truck in there. So 4 wheelers are a must! If it keeps snowing 4 wheelers might not cut it . You are going to have to cross Jarvis creek... That's our plan anyhow knows when we get up there we are leaving on Thursday morning... Some folks have said that it might be hard hunting due to the moose moving down low becuase of the snow?

    How much snow is their in Delta now? That's going to be a big factor since you have to go back in off the road system. How bad is Jarvis Creek this time of year also?

    Jarvis creek is not bad this time of year depending on rainfall if it gets above freezing. It is a glacier fed creek so the water level is starting to drop like all the rest of them.

    Me and my hunting partner will be leaving out early Sunday morning heading down to Delta. I just wish we had a snow report before hand. It's snowing here in Fairbanks right now. I will probablly be taking my argo so if you see me stop by and say hello.

    looking at going also.. how far in do you need to go? do you think a 3 wheeler would make it? whats the limit with 4 wheelers and the ammount of snow they can traverse? is there a good place in anchorage or wasilla to rent 4 wheelers? a buddy wants to go on this..

    Google Earth has reasonably good coverage of this area. Check it out and compare it to the map on ADFG's website. You have to get quite a ways in off the Alcan or get across Jarvis Creek. Either way, depending on snow conditions, it may not be easy.
    Not to discourage anyone who wants to do it (I'm not going, so I don't care either way), but I'm not sure its worth a long drive given the potentially difficult access to the hunt area, likely number of other hunters, and the fact that there is a quota of 50 moose in each of the 2 zones.

    Smile Rm797 access

    This Hunt will be a tough one. No Off road trucks are gonna cut it, ATVs even questionable. You have to get much farther off the road this year. Forcast is for freezing rain in Delta on Friday and Saturday which will make the extremly mountainous (up to 6000 ft) terrain very dangerous( hunted dall sheep here before) Crossing Jarvis creek Will be interesting. It may be down because of the freezing up high, and considering it's fed by glaciers, but it is a class iv white water rafting area and it could be interesting. It's going to be wet and sloppy and freezing. Got the permit, but I am thinking about taking the bow up the haul road for caribou instead.

    look crappy at best. Going to be a hard one to fill tags as the location of the hunt is the kicker. Going to have to be up high to get it done. Not as easy as people think.

    You guys are crazy if your gonna drive from Anchorage to Delta in hopes of scoring on this hunt. Access is limited to only a few choke points, wheelers may or not even make it in there ( I'm betting not) and it takes place at sheep hunting elevations. Keep in mind that hundreds of hunters will be trying to access this area this weekend, heck I might go just for the entertainment,(already killed a moose this year)!
