    Angry Slap in the face

    Let me see....I pay $600 to fly to Denver, $1200 to Mexico, $25 dollars for the first checked bag, 50 lb limit on my coolers, and this guy wants info on the best place to hunt because HE FLIES FREE and probably gets free checked baggage. Hmmmmmm

    Not sure re: your hunting experience (not stated) but I suspect hunting in Alaska may be a bit more involved than your post makes it sound.....but I could be wrong!

    Fly to Kodiak and do a deer hunt,

    Fly to Prudhoe Bay and hire someone to get you out from there on a Caribou hunt.

    SE Alask Black Bears.

    Apply for some tags next year and then go on your hunt.

    Fly to Aniak and hire Inland Aviation to fly you out to Unit 18 for moose.

    Call Larry Bartlett with Pristine Ventures or Mike Strahan here for ideas.

    Your ticket to Alaska will be free. The rest will cost you something.

    If I were in that position, I would fly to Kotzebue for caribou (a fly-out in a chartered bush plane will be necessary from Kotzebue, but the hunting can be spectacular). For goat and black bear, I would hire a guide out of either Ketchikan or Sitka. Give Muskeg here on the forums a shout if you want to go that route.

    I guess i should have stated this I have grown up in Alaska my whole life, I live in Palmer alaska.
    Have hunted and fished my whole life, not that it says much about myself and what I know.
    Have enjoyed hunting bear, moose, sheep, goat, no carribou yet but plan to add it to the list.
    Winter trapping, bird hunting, and some times just watching the animals and calling them in just to see them.
    Yes I work for Alaska Airlines and I fly for free, i dont charge any one the price fo tickets or the price for the bags. I love the people I work for though and think that they do a good job and yes they make money. With out getting further into that though, i do plan on useing this perk to see this beutifull land we live in to the full. If this upsets you sorry but please ask yourself if some one gave you a chance to see parts of alaska most dont get to see would you turn it down. Also I plan on doing volunteer work as a EMT in the villages to try to give back for this wonderfull experiance. Again any info ones can give me please let me know thanks again for your time....

    As an Alaskan resident, a guide is not required to hunt goat. Good luck.

    Hunting goat, caribou and black bear will be tough since most caribou herds prefer to roam the open tundra. But doing a goat/black bear or a caribou/black bear is very doable. Take advantage of that free flying and get out and enjoy yourself, if I had those bennies i'd be doing it myself.
