    I heard it snowed pretty good up in the hills though. True fact?

    I doubt it, not much snow here yet.

    ATV's? I walk to my hunting grounds. If I can't walk from where my truck will drive to, then I'm too close to town (ie Anchorage).

    I went up to knik today. Complete disaster!! Too much snow up in the valley to ride atv's let alone parking your vehicle in a lot.

    Yote's

    I made three stands this morning after the fresh snow and on the 3rd stand, I saw a coyote working his way to me. After about 5 minutes he never showed up. When I slowly stood up, another yote was working his way down the same hill. I sat down and continued calling but I never saw him again either. The grass / fireweed is still too tall and they can sneek up close enough to bust you and you'll never see them. I can see that I need to take those long shots until we get some more snow to knock down the vegetation. Just wonder if I had dogs working their way to me on the other stands but never saw them?

    I ride snowmachines back there a little bit (usually when I ride all the way down to the Caribou hills, which isn't often anymore) when there is enough snow. Not on the roads, as that is not allowed in KGF. I've ridden a wheeler back there a couple times down the trails. Driven a truck back there once too. But if you go off trail, your in some pretty nasty stuff. The ground is very bumpy (there is only one term for what they are called that I am aware of, and it is improper to say at the least) and very wet where there are no trees. The bumps can be as high as 4 feet from the bottom of the hole to the top of the mound. Okay, just looked up the term, the more appropriate term is hummock, which are a bunch of minurature heaving from freezing/thawing. The area is very wet. I walked it this fall, and if you don't watch out, you'll be up to your hips in water and/or mud.

    When the snow gets a cuple feet deep, it flattens out due to the wind in the area. As it is, you'd be hard pressed to see a coyote, as the grass is tall, and the valleys of the hummock are deep.

    A month or so ago I was down there and saw a late 70's Jeep Wagoneer stuck on one of the trails. Looks like they tried to drag it out (tow strap was hooked to the rear) with no luck. I wonder if it is still there? I have it marked on my GPS (not that I need it, but I can give coordinates if anybody wants them....).

    4 wheelers

    I personally have never been out there on a 4 wheeler. I plan on taking a snowmachine when I get enough snow

    Yeah, it pretty much IS my Father's back yard. I might just take you up on that. Next time I get a chance to head down that way.

    Those caribou are funny, they walk right up to you in the summer time (I worked at KGF for a couple summers as a summer hand). They like the gas field.

    good deal!!

    I live really close to that area. Practically in my back yard, I was interested in trying it out. Was walking around out there earlier this fall and seen some caribou. If you ever want to go pm me.
