well we made it in, 39 degrees at cantwell when we made the turn. road is in good condition to about 120 mile then it is rough and icy all the way to 64 mile then there is about 4 inches of snow on the road to Mclaren area... talked to a few folks that came all the way across (potlatching for moose) tons of bou on the paxton end of the highway and along the rich... we have seen several herds crossing infront of us today and one group of about 1000 on the hillside with three camps under them awaiting daylight.
i also talked to the Cantwell wildlife trooper... just to make sure ..
THERE ARE NO ANTLER RESTRICTIONS ... NO UGLIES AS THE BOG CALLED THEM... ANTLERS DO NOT NEED TO BE CUT
there will be by the sounds about 6 AWT patroling the denali coridoor. checking for cut tags and shooting from road violatoins. so double check yourself and know where you are at. don't forget there is a control use area on the north side of the highway between mclaren and big sue. NO ATV for hunting.
will be on the road at first light, and will post later on the status... if Denali snow can get her mail... i will stick around to help her get one home too... i dont expect this hunt to last long...
have fun be safe...
