    Passing this on....



    AOC Email Alert

    Taylor Highway area hunters

    BLM’s Eastern Interior Field Office has announced that public information meetings regarding the changing ownership of federal public lands in the Fortymile/Eagle Region will be held next week:

    1. Ownership changes could result in your old hunting area (Or, where you fished, trapped, camped or gathered wood) having recently become private property.

    2. Access that you may have once used to reach your hunting area may now be re-routed on to BLM approved 17(b) easements.

    BLM staff will provide information to help us all respect private lands while accessing public lands accessible off the Taylor Highway. These BLM meetings are your chance to become informed on how you can continue to access public lands in the Fortymile/Eagle area.

    PUBLIC INFORMATION MEETING SCHEDULE:



    Eagle- next Monday, Aug. 3rd , 6:00pm – 7:00pm presentation. At the Red Men Lodge

    Tok- next Tuesday, Aug. 4th, opens 6:00pm. High School Multi-purpose Room

    Fairbanks- next Wednesday, Aug. 5th. Opens 6:00pm. BLM Office, 1150University Ave. Kobuk Conference Room

    Anchorage- next Thursday, Aug. 6th. Opens at 6:00pm. Campbell Creek Science Center. 5600 Science Center Drive.

    We do not go to the green woods and crystal waters to rough it, we go to smooth it. We get it rough enough at home; in towns and cities; in shops, offices, stores, banks anywhere that we may be placed

    Sounds like one of the native corps (Ahtna perhaps) found another piece of land they want to claim for their own. Road accessible hunting areas are getting harder and harder to find. Bummer deal.

    I have a feeling my kids will be applying for non-res hunting permits in other states.

    That could be an issue also, don't know. I do know quite a few people that got land off the Taylor in a land lottery recently though, and I have a feeling this is what it's about.

    I have never hunted the Taylor, but perhaps someday I will. In the meantime, it behooves you all int he area who do run this area to get involved. private property or native, there could be a ROW involved int he deal that might get nixxed if no one speaks up!!

    there have been some allotments issues coming for some time in this area... Avalanche spoke up on this last spring.. and seems i had some info on it too... ( so much has transpire to keep up) i think it is a combination of both native lands and for sale deals... regardless... you can expect access that used to be there.. now gone.. and i don't think any grandfather rights will be involved.

    We already do this... off to hunt turkeys in California in the spring. Putting together an archery Coues deer hunt in January in Arizona. With my Alaska Airlines miles it becomes really cheap. Much cheaper than any fly-in hunt in Alaska. Miles upon miles of Forest Service roads available for anyone to use. We also have over the counter opportunities for mule deer and antelope with family in Montana.
