First let me say thanks to EVERYBODY for letting me enjoy hunting season through your posts. I have spent most of this years hunting seasons in Iraq, reading your posts and viewing your pics has helped me deal with the pain and misery of missing out so far this year. I will be returning the beginning of October and was planning on taking a trip across the Denali Highway for some late season bear hunting. However, I have never been across the Denali past the first week of September and am not sure that idea is even feasible. If anybody could shed some light on the snow/road conditions across the highway around mid-October it would be greatly appreciated! Also is that too late for bears in that area? Are they still wandering around for a last minute snack or are they sound asleep? Thanks in Advance!!
