    What drainage is this permit?

    Default Its 14c

    In the Peters creek and thunderbird creek area, and I think Goat creek....its easily hikeable and accessable, I believe they only give out about 6 or 7 tags (residents only) and maybe 1 Non - resident. I have seen sheep in there before, mostly ewes and lambs. Maybe there are some rams way in the back.....

    I was lucky enough to draw the same tag last year.You should have a great hunt.I seen more than my legal ram in the area.I have been on three great hunts that were succsesfull in the area,only one was my sheep but enjoyed every second of them all.It takes some walking so be in shape,this will be a hunt of a life time so good luck.....

    If any one needs a packer i'm there.every one of those hunts we have seen rams in the same area.I will be back from my sheep hunt on the 20th and would love to help someone be succsesfull,even if I am not!

    I have hunted peters creek valley from four mile trail, but you are 15 miles at least to any sheep. You can come over the top from ram valley on the eagle river side. Pioneer pike has sheep and is in your hunt area the trail is off knik road past the bridge. Your can also get to the front of twin peaks from Eklutna lake. Good luck and good walking.

    Out of respect for anyone who got out and scouted this tag I would urge those that feel compelled to respond to this post to bite their tongue. It's too late in the game, those who prepared are ready, those looking for help now probably should have done more looking around this summer. Some guys wait their whole life for a chance.

    I've been out quite often but I work out of town and I've been gone for two months scouting hasn't been an option.
