  • A good spot close to anchorage for bear hunting??

    I've been in Anchorage for 7 years now and I am finally taking up big game hunting. My question is where is a good place close to Anchorage to take a black bear. I've hiked the Crow Pass Trail (saw one the first mile in) and and been riding down to Girdwood glassing the hills. I hit Hope this weekend and saw more scat than bears. I need to stay close to home because my wife is due to have the baby any day now. Any suggestions on where to go. I leave to go TDY for 9 months next Friday and would LOVE to take one before I leave. Any help is appreciated. Thanks

    High quality Binoculars, and a lot of time operating them. Open hillsides and Binoculars, it is that simple. Find a thread on here on how to operate binoculars. A quick scan will not get the job done, lots of time studying every dark spot, every horizontal line, every stump, etc.. Good Hunting.
    ALASKA is a "HARD COUNTRY for OLDMEN". (But if you live it wide'ass open, it is a delightful place to finally just sit-back and savor those memories while sipping Tequila).

      Thanks AGL4now, that may be where my mistake is. I have a good set of bino's. I've just been doing a quick scan focusing more up high rather than down low. Also, I'll try that next time I go out. Thanks for you help!

        I hear if you have quad access and follow the trails up Jims creek going to the glacier there are alot of bears up there... Especially during the salmon run
