Just wanted to stop in and say hello. Just arrived at Fort Rich for my 2nd tour in AK (Fort Wainwright last time). I look forward to seeing the stories and hopefully learning a bit to prepare myself for the hunting seasons up here in Alaska as I know I have quite a bit to learn. Thankfully I never changed my res. over from my last time up here so I qualified for a res. license (picked it up today hunt/fish/trap). Now I just have to sit back and wait for the "seasons" to arrive even though I will miss a good portion of the fishing in july/aug due to a field problem and then sadly december I will be gone for 12+ month to go back to the sandbox yet again.
So my question is are there any decent areas around Anchorage that are foot path reliable for moose and black/brown bear? Reason being is I am up here with out a snowmachine or quad and most likely will not get one until I get back from the desert due to my income (wife is stay at home mom).
Any info would be greatly appreciated as I would love to stock up my freezers a bit before I leave.
