I am in the military and have lived in Alaska for a year and a half, so this year will be my first year hunting as a resident. I wanted to hunt spring bear, but I have no idea where to go. It seems like there are plenty of bears around our garbage cans on base, but you can't shoot those. I was hoping to go for brown bear because it is a once in a lifetime opportunity, but I wouldn't mind shooting a blackie (I heard that the meat is pretty darn good). I don't want to take anyone's "secret" spot or anything like that, but can someone point me in the right direction. At this point I was just going to pick a river in GMU 14 or GMU 16 and hike along it until I found a huntable spot. Thanks.
