question from a texan

Postby mxmike26 » Sun Apr 21, 2013 7:23 pm

I have family up in Anchorage that is big into fishing. I head back every year for some great fishing on the Kenai. This year Im looking to head back to do some duck hunting. I currently hunt quackers in texas but never have in AK nor has my family. I have friends in Fairbanks with an airboat.

Question I have is can someone point me in the right direction as to a better area. So I can maybe get them out there scouting..

Where exactly are you wanting to hunt, anchorage or the fairbanks area. Makes a big difference...Alaska is bigger than Texas :lol3:

What time of year are you going to be here? If you are hunting the fairbanks area with an airboat I would look at the Minto flats.

Rgr.

Lived in Fairbanks for six years.
Can either swing into the Anchorage area as I have family in Eagle River or Fairbanks.
Was trying to plan my trip on when the best time for duck chasing was.
Would be easier if the duck hunting was better near anchorage but either way would be stoked just to be sitting in the blind.

I can't speak for Anchorage area I live on the Kenai. Season starts September 1st and is pretty steady shooting till it freezes up usually in October. After that sea duck hunting gets good. And stays good till end of season in December.
Check out Alaska outdoors forum there are a lot of good guys on there and a lot of fowlers that hunt the fairbanks and Anchorage area.

Kenai

Man basically live on the Kenai when I head up for some fishing. Might have to try and swing that with the old man. Will check into that outdoor hunting forum. Take it you are speaking about the inlet and lake.

I do my sea duck hunting out of Homer usually but have hunted out of Whittier as well. For puddle ducks I mostly hunt the Kenai flats
