Default Birds

So the deal is that I have a couple of young boys that want to hunt with dad (2&5). Is there any places I can just take the truck and road hunt for some birds or rabbits? Something close to the Anchorage area would be best. I want it to be fun for them and not an adventure of sitting in the truck. If its a spot to keep on the down low, just pm me and I'm good with that. Because I would like to have a place to go to more than once! Thanks ahead of time.

Out at the flats is a good place for rabbits. Unless you get lucky and see some grouse, birds are pretty much done for the year. It's been cold lately and you'll probably have to walk a decent distance. Park somewhere safe on the flats, dress warm, and walk East of the tracks. There's alot of room and decent hunting.

Do not take a dog with you, there are alot of traps and snares in that area. We almost lost a good bird dog after he was caught in a self locking snare.

Good luck and happy hunting with your boys

Thanks boss, good looking out for my Tanner boy too! My youngest is only two and walking in the cold doesn't work out for long with him. Unless he's on my wheeler, then I can't get him off! lol

There is the old highway up near Eureka on the North side of the new highway. I'm not sure if you want to drive that far, it's about 1.5 hours +\-. I don't recall any "no motorized vehicals" signs, but you might want to look into it. There is a rest stop just across the highway from Alascom road (this would be on the North side of the highway), if you drive to the back of the rest stop you will see the parking lot connects to the old highway. I've been told there is decent ptarmigan hunting here. Most folks walk it, but if its legal you might could drive it with a four wheel drive. I don't believe they have alot of snow as of yet but I haven't been up that way in a few weeks.

I've got a few ducks that are ready for the freezer if you want easy hunting.
