Looking forward to taking my daughter on her first moose hunt this summer and she was lucky enough to draw the August 15-31st Chatanika (Steese Highway and Elliot Highway area) antlerless moose permit. I know the area fairly well, but we are contemplating floating, or doing a 4 wheeler trip to get off the beaten path and away from the other 53 permit winners for that time slot. Does anybody have ideas on areas to head in? We will be doing some scouting trips this summer but it would be nice to have some starting ideas.
Also, since she will be 10 during the hunt, I am presuming the tag is hers and will not count against my bag limit as well? The Delta Youth hunt that my neice drew last year counted against the permit winner, and the accompanying adult. It specifically states that for the youth hunt and I could not find it anywhere on other drawing hunts, so I thought I would ask to confirm.
