Assuming military? What's with all the guys here that used to live there. My daughter has 2 friends who both have dad's that retired from there. Both ex-military turned police.USAFRET said:After living there for 16 years nothing is easy in Alaska and if it is then every one else will be floating also. Without more details it's difficult to answer your question, I assume you are floating for moose but without knowing what river your floating its hard to answer your question. I would suggest getting a copy of float hunting Alaska by Michael Strahan. I can tell you Alaska is not like most places it's very unforgiven and guessing or underestimating can have severe effects.
I can remember when I was in the AF and was finishing up training when everyone was talkin about their assigned duty stations.One guy had Minot and he comes up to us and says" WHY NOT MINOT" and our reply was "FREEZINS THE REASONS".USAFRET said:Chester, you are correct. I was stationed at Elmendorf for eight years and Eielson for eight. I would still be living there, my son lives in Fairbanks and One daughter is in VA, one in MT and three here in Minot along with half the grand kids . I don't have to tell you where the wife made the decision to stay, lol. I would get that book by Michael Strahan, all your questions and more will be answered.
Yes he is! i've known Larry since 1999 and he'll give you the shirt off his back to help you out. Strahan is a great resource too. Very nice guy and has helped a ton of people out too when it comes to floating hunting. His book, as with Larry Bartlett's books, are a must read for anyone thinking about float hunting.USAFRET said:Great advice OAGR, Larry is one of the best!
