Re: Wow, no one been to Alaska

LTLR , You speak of Alaska and it sounds just like my first hunt in Colorado. I know it may not compare but thats as close to Alaska as i've been . I would love to go there . Can you tell me what the cheapest hunt would cost me ? Not to sound like a tight wad but money is hard to come buy right now .

Thanks

BigBuck

    Got an opportunity to go up there in 08 to guide for silvers on the Tsiu River, help out a little with the moose and bear hunts, and do a little duck hunting my pics looked very similar to Guy M's. Will definitely be goin back someday to do some hunting. Beautiful place, harsh weather.

    Good point, got to dress for the weather.

    Similar to Colorado but the country and the mountains are bigger with very few people. Do it yourself caribou is the cheapest. But with fuel costs what they are now ain't nothin cheap in Alaska. With airfare about $750 from the lower 48, fly in drop camp around $2500, tags $325 each, you get the idea. Colorado is a bargain considering that.

Alaska is awesome, I used to live there, I still work there but I miss her very much..
    Don't want to burst anyone's bubble but you might want to read this article before planning to hunt the Mulchatna herd:

    Caribou in Trouble On Alaska Peninsula

    I've hunted this herd many times in the past but don't bother nowadays. At one time the herd was totally awesome but these days it is pretty sad.

    Alaska is by no means for the faint of heart and you could easily get yourself in some serious trouble up there but I went on a DIY bear hunt there 2 years ago with two great friends one of them is was 400lbs when the trip was conceived and probabley 350lbs at time of the trip, but he worked up to the trip and had no issues at all. He started working for the trip about 9 months in advance since then I have seem him compete in a triathalon he is still 350lbs but does not let it slow him down.

    Re: Wow, no one been to Alaska

    I went sight seeing there a few years ago. This year I'm hunting bear with my father and nephew. We'll be on Prince of Wales. My father has talked of doing this for years, but money was too tight. I'm going mostly to try to look out for them. Dad is 74 years old, but a tough old guy. I'm taking my 300 RUM sendero, with NXS 5.5x22x56. Plan to use 200 grain partions. I just recieved my 338 EDGE. If I can get it set up this week, I may take it. What are your thoughts on using the 300 RUM with 200 grn partions. Loki
