    I dont think there is a free roaming herd like in the lower 48 and I know there are farms that you can hunt for elk and I beleive that one of the names is Misty Mountain Elk Hunting Adventures that is in Delta. I think there are other farms also but dont recall any names, either way it is a great looking bull

    Default Game farm

    I saw three elk at Harter's Taxidermy in Fairbanks a guy and his sons had shot. Very nice elk by anyone's standards. But they are fenced. I personally would not mount a high fence animal, but to each his own. Come to think of it, I would noy hunt one either. I was told the elk hunt runs $5,000.00 which includes a cabin.


    I put the whole family in for the Delta Elk tag. I hope we draw!

    Default Free rooming elk

    We went to Afognak after free roaming elk, it was a week long cost us about $1,500 a piese and had one of the best hunts ever, (except for my buddys snoring) Try this 1st, no fences.

    I knew about the islands but I thought the post was referring to Delta. for future reference, how hard is the hunt on either of those islands? What is the cost for the complete trip?

    Sounds like a Texas big-dollar lease whitetail hunt. I wonder if they have blinds set up by the feeders?

    The 2 years I lived down there I never could understand that method of "hunting". Maybe it's just me?
