How's it goin, everyone? My name's Barron, and I'll be graduating from the Air Force Academy soon. After I do, I'll be stationed at Elmendorf AFB in Anchorage for a few years, and I can't wait to take advantage of some of the amazing hunting and fishing opportunities that Alaska has to offer. I've taken a black bear on Kuiu Island and a nice bou somewhere near Lake Lliamna, but I'll be new to the Anchorage area, and I'm just looking for some feedback on hunting opportunities around there; anything from brown bear to mountain goats and salmon. Where should I go? What affordable guide services are there for non-resident military? Would I be well-advised to have a four-wheeler or a boat? Anything along those lines would be of great help to me. Thanks for reading, and a response will be appreciated even more. Good luck in your hunting, and I look forward to being a part of one of the wildest places left in the world!
PS - Here are a few pictures; I don't want to be the guy who asks you to read all of that and gives you nothing in return. Please feel free to add some pics of your own to the thread... I'd love to see them.
