    Default Juneau Blackies

    Finally seeing a few. Watched a sow and cub yesterday for about 1/2 hour. This years. Tiny.
    Surprised I'm not seeing more. Lots of green up. I'm sure they are out in numbers, though. i just havn't been out looking at prime time.

    Saw two yesterday, one a decent boar. I think this is the week to be on them. Sucks, as I have outboard problems that won't be fixed until late in the week.
    Guess i'll have to do a little climbing and hunt some slopes.

    I saw that bear on the avalache slide on saterday, he looked decent. I went out road (north) early on friday and saw no tracks in my hot spot. There is still a bit of snow in the open areas but under the trees wasn't as bad. later that day I saw a small bear on the slide behind the high school. This is going to be the week and I have to leave town for 10days.

    Son and I are going out the end of Thane this afternoon. Climbing up above the power line cut down by little sheep cr. It's a bit of a hump up, and brushy as #%^*&* through the cut, but pretty nice once your up there. We'll see.

    Just an FYI, the 1/4 mile rule for the road out there extends to just below the summits of most of the mountains along the road...

    And people do watch those mountains like hawks. 2 guys got nailed there last year for shooting one in the big slide area...

    Good information to remind people....

    I know there are restricted areas around Mt. Juneau for shooting...but the peaks around the mountains around downtown Juneau and Mendenhall are all 2500+ ft (and Mt. Juneau / Gastineau are more like 3200) with the road being at roughly sea level... I guess it depends on your definition of 'just below the summit'.

    The 1/4 mile rule is not as a man walks, its as a bird flies.


    So, if you take and look at a map, and draw a 1/4 mile inland from the road, that is how far you have to be...

    That's an interesting point. I understand that's how the troopers enforce the 5 mile corridor on the haul road, though I find that comparison lacking, given the comparatively flat terrain ...
    In the city ordinances I was only able to find this:

    "It is unlawful for any person except a peace officer in the line of duty, to fire or discharge any firearm within one-quarter mile of any public street, road or highway."

    Hopefully they'll amend this at some point to be clearer. A reasonable person could interpret this ordinance incorrectly.

    You also have state code that says you cannot big game hunt within a 1/4 of the roadway here...

    EDIT:

    Along with the ordinance you posted, there is a part of that, or a seperate one that closes off a part of the Mt. Roberts area for a duration of the summer.

    I'm pretty sure the 1/4 mile thing is a Juneau city ordinance. I couldn't find it in the regs after a cursory look, so please do point that out if it's in there. Not that I do much (if any) hunting within 1/4 mile the road, just like to be aware of the regs...

    Also, 1/4 mile as is defined puts you about half way up Mt Roberts or so, if google maps is to be believed...Really depends on which mountain.

    You're referring to this, I believe:

    It is unlawful for any person except a peace officer in the line of duty, to fire or discharge any firearm within one-quarter mile of the Mount Roberts Trail, from the trailhead at Sixth Street to the top of Gastineau Peak, including Gold Ridge, from April 15 through October 15.

    I believe it is in the Unit 1 map area of the regulations. I haven't picked up a set for this year yet so I can't be certain!

    Yup, looked there several times. Not in there as far as I can tell.

    There is a 1/4 mile corridor in Ketchikan, for what that's worth...

    google earth adds the elivation in its distance, so it is not as the crow flys. I belive where ak viking was going was a 1/4 mile off the road and I was just stating that I saw bears out and about. What about if you used a bow? The regs are a bit difrent for that.

    Theres a reg that states "No Big Game Hunting within 1/4 mile" or somthing to that effect.

    The "no discharge of a firearm within 1/4 mile" is a seperate law, which is a CBJ ordinance...

    "Juneau Road System Closed Area: The area between the coast and a line 1/4 inland of the following road systems: Glacier Highways from Mile 0 to Mile 23.3 at Peterson Creek, Douglas Highway from the Douglas city limits to Mile 7 on the North Douglas Highway, Mendenhall Loop Road and Thane Road; is close to taking of big game."
