    Probably not too many guys are going to give up there favorite spots, but I will tell you this much. The key to finding hare (there are no rabbits in Alaska) is to find the right habitat. Basically anywhere you can find lots of willow (food) and alder (cover), you are going to find snowshoe hare. To find the right habitat you need to know where to look. You are not likely going to find the right habitat in a mature forest. Willow and Alder live mostly in disturbed soils. Which means you must first find areas of disturbance. The best areas in the valley I have found are usually associated with the banks of rivers, or areas where a forest fire has occurred. Hope this helps.

    I thought I remembered that name from somewhere. I'm a little slow, but I'm putting two and two together here... obviously the Viking fan would know about Al Linder. What was his magazine? I used to watch that show on Saturday mornings when I was a kiddo.

    Ron and Al Linder are legendary in MN eh. Those guys were my idols growing up. As for rabbit hunting in the valley, the best advice I can give is to pick one of the two highways heading north and start checking all the pull outs. Your likely to even see them from the highway as soon as you get about 15 miles out of town.
