  • Dm426/427 jber

    Just over a month away until the Winter Draw hunts start on JBER. Anyone hunted this hunt that is willing to share their knowledge and wisdom. Who else drew this hunt this year? I am doing the Disabled Veterans one. Any info on when, where and how to do this hunt would be appreciated. We have been scheduled for orientation on Dec 8. Thanks

    I had DM 427 in 2011 and I ended up taking a nice cow on the Bull dog trail on the south side of TA429. We hunted 15 days but saw at least 2 moose every day. They were just being pressured a lot. We also saw several on the main base in TA 418, TA 412 and TA 411. Mostly along Pole Line road. I also saw a few people doing well in TA 430 as well. Just my .02 but I figured I'd throw it out there. Good luck on your hunt!

      Ok, 5 days into this hunt and I have only heard of one cow being shot on day 1. I saw a cow and calf but did not shoot. Starting to regret that decision. So any clues on how to hunt this winter hunt with little and very noisy snow?

        I took one there several years ago, and helped another fellow get his. Hunt early and late. Hunt all day. I saw more moose later in the season, and that is when I got mine.
        Take plenty of rope. You will likely get one close enough to pull it to the road with your vehicle. I used halibut ground line. Had a ramp in the back of my truck and used it to help get it in whole with the come along.

          Been in there from shooting light to shooting lite for the most part. Was told they only allowed about 40% of the hunters to take there vehicles in to collect there moose. Did you walk the roads, sit in an area and wait or drive the North side?

            I scored yesterday on a big cow. She was the fattest moose I have ever seen. We have been working 425 most. But as said before snow is very loud. I found this girl bedded in some trees off Bulldog midday. When I called in I was told that was only the second moose taken so far. Now just have to get her in the freezer and find one for my hunting partner. Good Luck to everyone.

                  We walked the roads, but also hunted places we could drive into.

                    Congrats on you moose. I have been hunting 425 myself. I know I have found about a dozen beds, but nothing in them.. I heard that there might have been another one taken today but don't know for sure. Maybe I am doing this hunt all wrong. I have been sitting in an area waiting for a moose to cross on of the trails. That mile and half hike every day is not doing my back or knees much good. But tomorrow is another day.

                      I have been hunting 425 as well...tons of sign, but not fresh. I also found a knife in the trail...let me know what it is and I will get it back to you...

                        Not my knife. But if I hear of one being lost I will have then look on here and describe it to you. You parking by Ship Creek or coming in from the Muldoon Areas? And all the sign I am seeing is old also.

                            That is what I thought. Heading out in a couple mins. Good luck.

                              I hope you guys score. My experience is that the snow moves them down. Supposed to start snowing again. I had the best success towards the end of the season. When do the permits expire?
