Re: Wow, no one been to Alaska

I get up to Alaska to fly fish the silver run every few years, not this year dang it! Have never hunted there. Did some backpacking up there too. Made my first trip in the 1970's when I was a young man. Great place. Amazing even... Here's a few photos from the fishing trip last year:

Size 12 boot...

Alaska is a special place, well worth the expense and trouble of the trip. I'd love to hunt caribou up there someday.

Regards, Guy

Re: Wow, no one been to Alaska

I would love to hunt Alaska , largest mtn's I've ever seen is the colorado mtn's . Reading yaws post about it makes me feel like I've never been hunting . That's why I know I would really enjoy a hunt their.

PS if I ever go their on a fishing trip ,I'll have more than just a fishing pole on me

Re: Wow, no one been to Alaska

I've been up here 27 years and don't regret making the move. I shot a smaller moose this year (42" three brow tines), it's just the wife and me here now so I mostly look for smaller bulls. I really prefer spikes or forks but I've got some load development to get done before November so figured I might as well get it done. In November we are headed to Idaho for my annual whitetail/turkey hunt. People in Idaho give me strange looks when I tell them I came to Idaho, from Alaska to hunt. Ha, grass is always greener on the other side of the fence!

I'm from Idaho originally and just can't get whitetail out of my mind. I think it's a sickness!
Someday someone may kill you with your own gun, but they should have to beat you to death with it because it is empty.

I'm still a newby here, but am from the northland too. Parents live between a fish camp on Afognak, homestead on Alexander Creek, and Kauai in their spare time. I'm stuck in Los Anchorage raising my kids

Re: Wow, no one been to Alaska

Well, well, well... dream distroyed. I would tell my wife how I would love to
hunt in Alaska and even maybe live there. I have let the time go by and now
after reading these posts and me being almost 55 y/o with a beautiful 350 lbs
body... well, bye, bye dream...

Jesus Christ the same yesterday, and to day, and for ever.

Our Lord Jesus said that as it was in the days of Noah and
also as it was in the days of Lot so it shall be in the days...
It's happening again!!! God sent to us His prophet, and His Word
to this generation and we once more are rejecting it as was prophesied!!!

---> As promised, God Sent His Prophet to us!
