  • Bowhunting in winter and some ???s

    Been up here going on 7yrs and before that i live in Washington and bowhunt for the last 18yrs came up here got certi. and i really don't know anyone that bowhunts. I have been hearing about orentation or something on ft. richardson. Any answers?? And how come no one has 3D shoots in the winter and i know its cold and maybe that the answer.And does anyone know if there is a techno hunt program or dart systems in anchorge if not I'm thinking about buying one. I,m sorry about my email address for some reason it will not work. Thanks BigDK

    You could call the archery shops around town in Anchortown area out of the phone book and find out if they have techno. Its just a hair too cold up here in the interior to be doing outside shoots. I can tell you that years ago I killed a Bou with my bow at -35 degrees and the bow didn't sound too good when I drew it back.

        Might be money making proposition. I know the ones up here get good use. I am shooting Dart leagues at Kings Nock in Fbks. Its a lot more fun spending the winter shooting at real targets in the Dart system than shooting a 5 spot on the wall. Keeps you fresh for spring too.

          Yeah that what I'm looking for provide a good service to the bowhunter and keep in tune during the winter. I wonder how the insurance is for that kind of deal.

            black sheep archery

            I think the black sheep archery club on Elmendorf AFB has a 3D shoot once a month, at least thats what i got from the calendar on their website. I haven't ever been to one of their shoots, but i use the range a lot, it is a great deal for membership if you live somewhat close to the base.
            All the romance of trout fishing exists in the mind of the angler and is in no way shared by the fish.

              Ft. Rich

              The Ft. Rich orientation is for winners of the Ft. Rich archery hunts. You must be Bow Hunter certified to apply. Once drawn you are then required to shoot an additional profeciency test for the Ft. Rich guys. Once you get passed their shoot you are required to pay $125 and attend their orientation prior to the hunt. I believe the orientation is mostly rules and regs of Ft.Rich...

              You can contact Dave Battle at 384-3909. He helps run the shoots and orientation stuff.

                  winter shoots

                  blacksheep has shoots one weekend a month I believe it's the first weekend of the month and chugiach has one a month also, i think theirs is the 3rd weekend of the month. talk to Bill at Backountry Archery in anchorage or Jerry at Fletchers in the valley. I have yet to see cold, wind or glare ice from some nasty freeze thaw cycles stop one. Alot of people show up to the Chugiak ones. I bring my whole family out. Youth classes/ ladies classes it's all there.

                          Here is ADF&G's link for Bowhunting regs.... (including bow hunter education requirements)

                          http://www.wc.adfg.state.ak.us/index...ons.bowhunting

                          As for any permit hunts you can check out the following:

                          http://wildlife.alaska.gov/index.cfm?adfg=permits.main

                          There are either sex, antlerless and bull tags.... Just depends on when, where and of course IF you are lucky enough to draw.
