New guy checking in

Greetings, I stumbled upon this site and decided to register. I recently moved back to Alaska with the US Army out on Fort Richardson in Anchorage. I look forward to swapping stories and gaining additional knowledge in the upcoming months with everyone.

Yah I have a few photos I can upload (mostly fishing) I just picked up my new 308 win mag last night to get ready for spring black bear so I can finally have that crossed off my bucket list (going to be pretty hard to pull off as I will be doing spot/stalk). Thanks again for the warm welcome

Glad

Glad to have you aboard Elmer..... you will love this site.  Everyone seems very friendly and more than willing to help.  I've only been a member a couple of months and love it.  Were you stationed at Lewis?  My son started his career there twenty-three or four years ago and is now stationed in Maryland.  He has done a lot of traveling and been fortunate enough to do lots of hunting wherever he was.  Good luck in Alaska.  That's one base my son didn't make it to.

Great pictures of you and your daughter with the fish.  I haven't fished the Nisqually but I know there are some nice fish that come out of there.  Did you get to do any hunting while in Washington?  Lots of blacktail on Fort Lewis.

Welcome to the site.

Yah I was stationed at Ft.

Yah I was stationed at Ft. Lewis but was unable to hunt due to deployments but I did fish when I had the time. This is my 2nd round in AK (last time I was at wainwright). Just really got the itch to get out there and bag a blackie this spring (already scouted a few areas but its going to be a nightmare to stalk blackies on foot but I am willing to give it a shot). Sooner or later when we get settled in (prob after this upcoming deployment) I will pick up a snowmachine or quad to get me back deeper and register a bait station but this year will be a learning game for me.
