A lot of hunting pressure here locally. You can find them but the numbers aren't like they are if you go farther north.
Most places you need to snow machine or snow shoe for access.
Hatcher does have them. Willow side has easier and friendlier terrain. Palmer side is traveled more here lately and is steeper. Make your way to the visible brush line.
Eureka, Petersville and Cantwell produce more numbers.
