Lived there for over 35 years. Spent my leisure time hunting and fishing. Managed to kill grizzlies, dall sheep, caribou, black bear, moose and blacktail deer. Some hunts were done on atv’s on trails so rough it would take us 12-16 hours to go 25 miles. Fly in hunts for deer and sheep. Some of our moose hunts involved driving about 450 miles then launching our river boat. Then we ran the Yukon to the Koyukuk then headed up the Huslia. Roughly 600 miles on the river in each direction on the rivers. We had to carry 400-500 gallons of gas on the deck of each boat to make the journey.
Owned an ocean boat and we caught our fair of salmon and halibut. My personal best was a 167 halibut.
I miss it, but you need to be young and have plenty of extra money to enjoy the state. Big boy toys are expensive.
