LEWDOG is out of Virginia and he was prior Coast Guard back in the day. The hardest part about the hunting for military is having somewhere to keep your weapons when you are young. If you are living on base you will need to find someone to keep them for you. Otherwise, you will have all the opportunities available to anyone. Definitely gives you the opportunity to hunt in a lot of places you probably wouldn't have hunted otherwise. Just keep using this forum and whatever state forum where you get stationed and enjoy the hunts!

Coasties

There is a handful of us on here. Sure you can hunt plenty of opportunities after you finish basic. I hunted while stationed at all of my units with the exception of Miami. From PA, AK, MI, and now NC.

IMO you ahould try AK if you can get it from bootcamp.

Good Luck and enjoy

i got alaska out of bootcamp and i LOVED it. i would go back in a heartbeat. its a different CG up there. im stuck in maine now but transfering this spring. TONS of duck hunting to do up here, especially sea ducks. thats one thing i love about the CG, you'll always be close to water, thus close to waterfowl.

I Asked for Alaska,the Great Lakes,West coast or Maine.
I got New London CT. :no:
Oh well,BM rating will get you to most stations and units,Lots of Bosn mates on ships and small boats.Don't be suprised if you find yourself on a sea going unit first.
I was an MK,I found that once you got to be good at your job they didn't want you to leave.My transfer dream sheets were "sent back" to be "redone" over the course of 8 months several times.Finally they told me I no longer had enough time left in my enlistment for a transfer.Nice. :rolleyes:

If I stayed in I would have tried to get the Great Lakes.I had a buddy stationed there and he loved it.
Alaska is another I would have wanted,if you hunt,fish or just love the outdoors I can't see not liking Alaska.
My lab is still the best hunting partner there is.
