    Default Planning a hunting trip for Moose & Caribou

    Looking for a very remote location to either fly into or float that has both Moose & Caribou. Planning on being in Alaska on Aug.20,2010 and staying for 3 weeks. I have done alot of research but I know that the Locals will know better than any book or website I can read.
    Thanks In Advance,
    Alvin

    Welcome aboard, Alvin. If I may start with a suggestion...you'll get a lot better responses if you ask specific questions. We get folks coming on here with some regularity asking "where can I go kill a moose?", and the collective response is about zero. When folks come on and ask specific questions about river A or mountain range B, they usually get very good responses. Folks here are very willing to help, but less than willing to just throw areas onto the table when not asked about a particular area. You say you've done a lot of research - great! That puts you way ahead of many folks trying to plan a hunt. - now bring some specific questions that have come to mind and I'd bet you'll get some helpful responses.

    I haven't been in that area in about 15 years and we just passed by heading to the Kantishna. Like any other river country in Alaska this place is going to hold moose, whether it's lots of moose is another question. The best part about 20C is that it's currently any bull for moose. The bad part is that it's close enough to Nenana that you are likely to have company in the area. I noticed in another thread you asked about caribou. You aren't going to see caribou in this area and there is no open season. The area doesn't open for non-residents until Sept 5th..5 days later than residents.

    Is there a map out there with that list each parcel and what it is such as 20c. I keep reading these discriptions of land but I have not been able to find a map or something to show me exactly what you guys are talking about, sorry if this is an elem. ? but I just do not know.

    Here is a link that you need to get you started. This is the link to the big game hunting regs. At the beginning of each game management unit is a basic map. http://www.wildlife.alaska.gov/index...gulations.main

    I would suggest ordering a DeLorme atlas of Alaska. Every outdoorsman in Alaska I know has one..or three.

    I would order Michael Strahan's book http://www.outdoorsdirectory.com/sto...roducts_id=400

    and then come back with some more questions

    My dad's got Mike's book and what little I looked through it, its a good one. He also said he thinks it's well worth it to have if you're thinking of doing such a hunt. I am picking up a copy today to read over the holidays.
