    Default New to Wasilla

    I am new to the area and would like to do some black bear hunting. I will be working with a limited budget and dont yet have all the toys, 4wheelers, boats etc. Any advice on pickup/walking accessable hunting areas would be much appreciated.

    Default Willow area

    You know, I haven't been up there myself, but I hear people talking about having seen black bears up by the Willow Creek fishing area. Be careful you don't endanger the fishermen and also that you're not tresspassing. I've heard of "less than friendly" reactions from property owners up in that area to people who missed or ignored the signs.
    Good luck, and put pics of your kill in the 2010 Photo Gallery please.

    If you want a place close by and dosent brake the bank or gas bill, give it a try behind the Eagle River nature center (you have to go past icicle creek to be legal with a firearm). It's a good hike but I have seen lots a bears back there. What for one a little lower then the one walkin' with the goats in the clouds...
