  • Anyone hunted 14C?

    I am looking for any info you have.

  • #2
    That's an awfully vague question, mallardman. Hunted it for what? As you may know, Anchorage is right in the middle of 14C. Chugach State Park also comprises a large area of 14C. As such, the hunting regulations in 14C are among the most complex anywhere. That being said, there is certainly hunting to be done - but what species are you referring to? Under the right circumstances (licenses, season, etc.), there is hunting in 14C for black bear, brown bear, goat, sheep, moose, hare, ptarmagin, grouse, waterfowl, etc. What info are you looking for? "Any info you might have" could fill a book.

      get a map of anchorage and eagle river... that should give the idea of 14C..

        Yea, I hunt there every 4 months. Mostly road hunt, Grocery stores, Lumber stores, Hit a bank or two, see the boys at GNG, then hunt for the barn. I Bagged two nice carts of groceries at Sam's Club, I had to use a magnum size check, OUCH....it cost a lot for Twinkies.....

        Got drunk one time back in 70' at the Green Dragon Bar, where Cal Worthington Ford is now, hunted two hours for my truck keys, my jacket, and my eyeballs.

            Don't know what your after but I hunted black bear in there last fall. Walked in behind the conservation center in Eagle River about 3-4 miles until you can start legally hunting and seen about 3 bears in locations that made me wonder if they were bear or goats. Did however have a sow griz and 2 cubs come down the trail and started fishing about 50 yards behind me. Hope the little info might help. Good huntin to ya!

              Short answer like your question, yes. Are you looking for game info, where to hunt, regs?

                Nope no reason to hunt 14c no reason at all
                I choose to fly fish, not because its easy, but because its hard.

                  invest more...

                  Mallardman...Two tiny sentences! Less than a dozen words requesting some of the most valuable and most sought-after info in the state?

                  That is not an appropriate question. Sounds more like a comical stick-up.

                  Your gonna have to invest a few more nano-seconds in a well though out question before we spill out 20 years of sweat and experiences for ya.

                  Where you B? Southcentral?

                  Between May and the start of sheep season you have 15 weekends to hike, climb, and scout for rams and every other species in the park. Your gonna have a great summer of trail hiking, scrambling-climbing, glacier and glacial river crossings, and exploring. Wear gloves in that alder brush.

                      Thanks!

                      Ok I know i was pretty vague on that first post, I was short on time. Although I did enjoy all the posts. I was looking for info back behind Girdwood. Such as...
                      Are there brownies back there?
                      How is the terrain once you get back in there 5-7miles? I see that there are a few glaciers so I am expecting pretty steep terrain, but is it doable to get up high for goats?
                      Do the mountains usually get a dusting in early sept?
                      How is the bird hunting back there?

                      As for the hog hunting up there I have heard the population is on the up swing. I might know a few guys that could come up there and help with that.

                        1. are you an Alaskan Resident? if not.. you no hunty!
                        2. The only thing a non resident is going to be able to hunt for in 14C is for sheep and that will be on the Gov. permit... so I hope you have 300K to pay for that permit.
                        3. Gotta love new regs :mad:

                          up - That's not entirely true. A non-res could hunt small game (birds, which he asked about), goats by drawing permit, black bear, and potentially brown bear with a guide in the area designated as "Remainder 14C".

                          mallard - Yes, there are brown bears in there, and yes, it is steep. As for goats, all goat hunting in the area is done by drawing-permit only. There is a small area open for moose hunting and bear hunting, but you need to read the regulations and maps very, very closely.

                          I would say that late September is generally more realistic for getting a dusting of snow, and I've come across surprisingly few birds back there, so it wouldn't be my first choice for bird hunting.

                            Nope black and brown are out for non residents. Sheep and Goat for non resi is ok if they get a permit, but they have to have a guide, the "new" stipulations per BoG. I made sure I was there for ALL of the 14C discussion as I was hoping they would open up the moose hunting more, due to the over abundance we are having here. That is about the only thing that non-resi can do without a guide.

                              I am a resident and have a goat tag. I am trying to get my sherpa excited about the hunt and if he has a chance to pop a brownie or chase some birds around I know it would peak his interest.
