Hum, really hunting up here is no different than anywhere else. A boat is nice to have to get away from folks but to me a wheeler is a better choice. I can't really speak for the Eielson area though. I have a layout blind but use it just for geese. Haven't found any field hunting in my area. A good quality gun to take the abuse is a must have. But like I said really no difference to me. Warm cloths, lol. Species, well just about anything you can shake a stick at. I think ya'll get into better goose hunting.
Hopefully some more Eielson area cats will chime in.
