i went scouting out at 20 mile river just south of anchorage the other day. saw lots of coyote and rabbit sign, as well as moose.


encountered a couple calves towards the end of the ride, that was neat. moose can really move through the snow if they want to.....

Hey Mike,There is hunting and fishing all over alaska. Just depends on what kind of fish you want and what kind of hunting you want to do.

Whites, We call them winter Kings. And they are abundant here. Do ya suppose I could mail ya a 60 pounder gt? 10 grand apiece would be fine by me. HAAAA
Turned down a mess of steamers and butter clams last night as I didn't want to mess with them. Friend pulled a 34 inch Steelhead out of the creek down town yesterday. So I guess spring is here. Even if it don't look like it. We still got plenty of Home Guard Halibut around. But the weather makes it tough to get to. Also all the oysters ya can pack. But than again they are a little hard to get to right know.
As for Hunting. We have the usual and the occasional Moose or Elk.

I hunt and eat everything!...The only bad hunting I ever done was at a bar, but she was a different animal.

Thats where the Flame Thrower works good. As ugly is only skin deep ya just smoke off the bad stuff. Nothing like the smell of Napalm in the evening.

Speaking of hunting, check out my gallery guys. Look in the truck album. Picture 12. After a few more shots, I whacked him across the muzzle. He didn't even flinch. I decided to run!!

Speaking of Winter Kings, I was on a charter....Clive's out of Deep Creek fishing with a buddy (Eric) We caught 2 of the white kings that day (middle of June last year) The lady that was fishing and my friend that was up from VA each had one. Talk about a happy boat captain. I hear IF you can find white king in the stores you'll pay plenty for it!!!

Cool pics *******, Last month I went over to a friends house and his truck had smudges all over it looked like a dog was jumping all over the outside of his truck, He said a moose was licking the salt off of his truck. Looks like that bull was doing the same thing to your truck.
