I moved in last August and my wife got me a nice Remington M700-CDL for Christmas. I am about to get resident status and was wondering if a moose or caribou hunt is even a possibility for me this year.
I obviously wouldn't have any T1 permits and haven't applied for any "R" permits yet. I also don't have a snow machine or ORV. I live in Eagle River and would be able to drive where ever.
For 'bou, it looks like Unit 13 is impossible, but it looks like I could still get into 12 or 20. Do either of those units present any sort of real possibility to hike in to set up camp? Or is everything so far off the road that I would need some sort of gas propulsion?
For moose, I really have no idea and would assume it's just way over my head.
Any general ideas as to whether I should even be worried about getting out there this year?
Also, if anyone wants company or a hand, I'd be more than happy to help pack in gear or pack out meat just for experience, more or less just to get my feet wet.
