I am looking to take a travel nurse position in AK somewhere that when I am done I can fly my husband up and we can go hunting in AK. Our debate is where to go since AK is so big. By doing the travel stint I hope to experience a bit more than just being the traditional tourist, allow for some scouting, and possibly make the hunting a bit more affordable. It would be great to get the opportunity to hunt bear, caribou, or moose...but would be ok with photographing those and going fishing and maybe a blacktail deer. Trying for a bear or moose would be my choice (we see moose while elk hunting all the time but tags take 10-15 years to get a tag in WY) but I know my husband would like to go after caribou.
Also...we can trade a guided antelope hunt + room & board in WY for the right person/situation. We don't have trophy antelope in the area, but I took a 15" buck this year that was nice.
Does anyone have suggestions, thoughts, or ideas? We are on a fairly tight budget but would like an adventure! This would be a year from now as I'm finishing grad school.
