    Default I'm not new here just new to the area

    I recently moved from Fairbanks to Anchorage. I have tried to hunt here (small game), but every where I go I find atleast 4 or 5 others doing the same. Is there anywhere I can go without having to worry about getting shot?I take my oldest daughter out with me any hunt I go on and I haven't found a safe one yet. Now I'm not asking any ones secret spots I just was wondering if there was a place to hunt grouse or hares that's not so populated? We don't mind walking. Thanks for any advice and if interested I have a cabin up north I may be able to offer a hunt for bigger game. Again thanks for any help to get my daughter and me out hunting.

    Jon,

    Welcome to Anchorage! You'll find that the move will open opportunities for you that did not exist in the Fairbanks area. Within two hours of town you have access to Dall sheep, moose, caribou, black bear, brown bear, goat, and small game. You also have access to all five species of salmon, trophy rainbow trout, char, grayling, and all the saltwater fishing you can handle. Anchorage is the place to be!

    Drop me a line and I'd be happy to help get you connected in the area!

    +1 !

    Anywhere within an hour or two of Achorage is also used by an additional 350,000 people, thats a wee bit different than Fairbanks where your sharing more land with 1/7 th the amount of people. This is what freinds of mine have said about moving to Anchorage is... #1 its warmer during the winter----colder during the summer, #2 The fishing is better... hands down, #3 Much harder to get away from the crowds to hunt, have to come back up towards Fairbanks to hunt!

    1. You have to give directions to your house using abandoned appliances for landmarks.

    2. You're attacked by a pack of free-ranging rotties while bunny hunting with your preschool-aged daughter, and the troopers refuse to investigate.

    3. You spend $400 a month on commuting to your job in Anchorage, just to save $200 on house payments.

    4. ??

    #4 you pay extra for your house for a view of a gravel pit.
    #5 you have house warming to help take the tires off your new house
    #6 you go 10 miles out of your way because you missed the off ramp to your subdivision
    #7 you plan on leaving an hour early just to go the 3 miles through town
    #8 you honestly believe the wind is blowing because Palmer sucks
    #9 you moved from anchorage and think you in the "great out doors"
    #10 you know your in Wasilla when....you moved out in 1986 and every time you go through, you see the strip mall just got longer
