I'm flying to Fairbanks in 3 weeks to buy my little piece of gods country.
Of three main properties I'm looking at one is right on the Elliott hwy 1.5
miles south of Olnes. The second is 2 miles past Olnes out Haystack rd.
The third is out the Steese Hwy.(Google says 35 miles to F.B.) it's 6 miles
past Pokers flats rocket facitily. Of course what I'm getting to is how the local hunting in these 3 areas will be. The 2 of Elloitt will really be in the same areas. There a long trail system going out (east) of the Haystack area. Looks like it would be in the 25C unit which makes it part of the Yukon Flats wildlife refuage. Please correct if I'm wrong all I have to go by is AF&G regs. The property on Steese has access to this area also from the south. Also Steese has a vast area to it south that looks open to hunting.
As for caribou North of Steese would be White Mt. herd and south would be Forty mile herd. Which would be best hunting. As to moose which area best. South of the steese doesn't have the trail system that they have going into the White Mt. area. Maybe not good hunting or maybe to ruff for 4 wheelers and snowmachines. In the White Mt. area do you need steel shot for birds and bunnies? Lastly I understand the draw hunts(mostly) from reading you alls post. Question is the registration hunts. Theres RC hunts in 25C and 20B (South of steese) and RM hunts in 20B.
Thanks in advance for all replies.
