Alaska residents I have some questions and was wondering if

So here is the deal my brother in law is at Fort Richardson Alaska. He wants to learn to hunt, since I'm not there and he is for the next 3 years, I was wondering if any of you up there had room in your groups to take him and one of his soldiers on and teach them a thing or two.

Obviously there is no cost to you financially, just a chance to help some guys out that other wise might not get the right start we all got.

Jon

So no one has any information on hunting programs for new hunters in Alaska?

whats he interested in going after? what kind of gear does he have? hunting is pretty much over and done with until spring of 2014 but depending on what he's interested in going after I may be able to help him out, or at least point him in the right direction.

Man ; I'm sorry but I didn't even know this part of LRH was here. And I just saw your post.

Being he is at JBER getting to where he can actually hunt is a challenge unless he has fairly good wheels. And then once he gets there it takes more mechanized means to get out, off, away from the highways. . BUT. There is a lot of hunting that can be done if he likes to walk or snowshoe. Lot of GI s that live in the barracks are often limited on the gear it takes to hunt up here. How crazy is he to go hunting? What kind of hunting is he interested in? What does he have for smoke poles? He doesn't qualify for any of the subsistence hunts but could come along and predator hunt or grouse hunt. With this record long warm spell there are still some bears outand as a non res he can shoot a black bear.

First year restricted to on post hunting only......next year he can get military resident hunting license for $25 free moose tag and black bear tag are free. A lot of big brown/grizzly population around Rich so suggest 300 Win Mag or bigger.

Re: Alaska residents I have some questions and was wondering if

If you want to have him contact me I've been up here a while and I'm actually on JBER. I'm going to be going after black and maybe brown bear this spring. Let him/them know I've got most of the gear needed to chase just about everything but ducks. I don't have a boat or wheelers but do have a good jeep and some packs. He should be issued snow shoes and some decent cold weather gear, if he's interested in chasing predators I've got some calls and have been looking for a dependable partner for a while. We will have to do some driving and probably a bunch of hiking to get to the good areas I know of but shouldn't be a problem on a long wkend. Thanks
