You can get the hunting

You can get the hunting season information off of the Alaskan DOW site.  As far as eatting bacon and beans.  Quite possibly they were red beans and instead of bacon it was usually side pork.  You would just cut off the size of meal that you wanted off of the side pork and then fry it up.  Hopefully somebody else will answer your question about Galena

Beans

You might try looking at this site,www.questconnect.org/ak_klondike.htm  .I believe they were navy beans, but the list on this site should give all the info you want.
