I drew an any bull tag for unit 13C in the Chistochina drainage. I've been doing some research with various map sources as well as talking with the biologist in Glenallen about the area. Haven't had a chance to get there and scout it out yet, but am hoping to in the next few weeks. The obvious trail going into the area is the Chistochina trail, but the biologist thought that trail might be a tough go with an ATV. Anybody have experience doing this and can comment on getting in this way? I am also looking at a number of other easement trails that might be more promising, but crossing water may be an issue. The biologist also though getting in through Paxson would be a possibility if I could find a place to cross the Gakona river. My recollection is that the Gakona is pretty big water though, no? Any comments on that?
If anyone has this tag, I would love to discuss the area with you and possibly swap ideas. My hunting partner may have to cancel on me as well due to some last minute family issues, so if anyone is looking . . . otherwise it'll be a solo trip in.
