    Default 2011 Moose hunting

    Well now that my 2010 season is officially over, I am looking forward to next season. I am looking into a walk-in type hunt or trying to stay around Fairbanks management area. I really want to try and get one with my bow. I can drive anywhere in the state, fly-in is not an option, nor is a float hunt. I know there are plenty of places to hunt doing a walk in, but I am not sure where to go to increase my chances. I would like to get a nice bull that I have to work to get. If any one can point me in the right direction so I can do the leg work it will help out greatly. I ma not looking at taking anyone's hunting spot, or invade there camp, but I would like to find a spot if pointed in the right direction. PM if you don't want everyone to know where it is.

    I would look into some of the bow only areas. Healy-Lignite Management Area would be a close start. Hard to compete with motorized gun hunters.

    I hunt the ferry trail pretty much every year, and if you dont have an any bull tag, then good luck (or maybe thats just me and I don't know where to go). I am kinda familiar with the area, is there good bulls in there? Never hunted that area before.
