    Default Petersburg AK

    I'm heading up to Petersburg this May for a black bear hunt. I'm getting excited, hunting Alaska has been a dream of mine for the last few years. I really want a bullwinkle but I guess a black bear is going to have to do for my first hunt. I'm hoping to get transfered up to your State so I can do even more hunting and fishing.

    I'll be using my .30-06 on this hunt just because it is my only all weather gun I own. I'd really like to use my .35 Whelen though but it is a little too pretty to be exposing to all that salt water and rain. Any help I can get about the Petersburg area, gear, and weather would be a great help.

    Thanks in advance.

    Taylorce1, I live and work in Petersburg. Where do you plan on hunting? How do you plan on getting where you are going? If you are hunting Mitkof you need a vehicle. All other islands, and mainland, you need a boat and maybe a vehicle. Kuiu has the largest bear populaiton but you need either a plane ride to a cabin or work off of a charter. Email me if you want more info. Jim

    Thanks Allen, they are great scopes if you would have had a 1.75-6 I would have jumped all over that one first. I have the 2.5-8 on my .338-06 and the 1.75-6 on my .35 Whelen. I'll definatly ask you first before I go get another new Loopy for my .25-06 when it is finished, your prices even with shipping are the best I've found by far.
