Uncle Sam has notified me that Fairbanks will be my next duty assignment and I couldn't be more pumped. I've already been scouring the regs but have more to do. Hopefully the wife and I will be able to get a caribou and/or moose down this year.
This. If you qualify for resident sheep tags, you need to do it. You’ll kick yourself in the rear end for the rest of your life if you don’t.Congrats on your new assignment and make the most of it. I would also be looking at getting a Dall while I was up there, you will never find a less expensive sheep hunt .
We've had 8 trips so far and bought a small cabin. 4 trips in less than a year! Trip number 9 coming in August, if not one sooner. Like they told Mikey, "Try it, you'll like it!"Congrats! My wife and I will be taking our first trip to Alaska in late summer. Hopefully the first of many more.
Those help. And yeah it's 84 degrees warmer in Virginia than it is in Fairbanks right now. And it's not near 84 here.And get those pipeline royalty checks as a resident My dad got stationed in Fairbanks when he got home from Viet Nam.....talk about weather shock lol
We're looking in to buying a side by side up there. Understand it won't have as much trail open to it as an ATV but still more than my Jeep.If your stationed at Fort Wainwright, check out their outdoor rec services where you can rent a jet boat, ATV, Snowmachine, etc.
It's a dry cold! Really, it just depends. We were in Fairbanks for Christmas in 2018. It pretty much stayed between 10 and 20 below during our stay. Didn't FEEL that cold compared to Illinois cold.
