Just checked the USFS website and won the reservation lottery for Alsek River Cabin starting Oct 21 for a moose/wolf hunt. There would be 3 of us hunting.
I have spoken with USFS employees as well as Federal Subsistence biologist and still have some more leads to speak with. However, I wanted to ask if any of you had done this hunt before or had experience in this area and could give me your viewpoint and experiences. I am always amazed at the breadth of experience and knowledge on the site and am hopeful one of you can fill me in!
Due to this being a subsistence area, the first legal hunt date, as I understand it, is the 22nd. This is pretty late in the year weather and rut wise and I am not sure what to expect from the animals.
In the opinion of those who have tried it is this a viable plan/time frame?
Any and all input is greatly appreciated and pms gladly accepted!
