O.K., so I've lived up here for about 5 years now and have become a good self-taught Alaskan angler. I fill the freezer every Summer. I thought that was a pretty easy thing to learn. Now I want to start the hunting adventure. There is soooo much information to wade through on the internet and in the book stores that it is overwhelming.
I have a good selection of rifles, shotguns, and muzzleloaders to use. I have my bear baiting certificate, working on AK muzzleloader certification, and will purchase my hunting license soon.
I am all about subsistance. I have 8 people in my immediate family to feed. This year I would like to put a small black bear or a moose or both in my freezer. I am not interested in trophies, just want a good experience and plenty of meat for the family. That pretty much narrows it down, so now what? I do not want your secrets. I just want to be pointed in the right direction to be sucessfull this year. Any advice will be appreciated. Thanks in advance.
