I made comments yesterday. Clean and respectful. I'm not sure why they're not public. I haven't looked today though.

I read them all this afternoon. I still am planning on sitting down and putting my 2 cents together.

Last pic is where we snuck to and waited for them to get in range.
Thanks for donating to the volunteer family. They saved our butts when the road was too muddy to pull the carts down.

So what will happen with the National Wildlife Refugees as far as closures in a government shutdown? LA has an entrance fee. Teniente and East Lake none but.

Not sure if this is the right place to ask this question, BUT... Anyone know anything about "Rattlesnake Island" just off the coast of LANWR? Maps seem to indicate it's not part of the refuge. Is it considered public land? Owned by the Buena Vista?

I don't think it's part of LANWR. Good fishing off there at times. You'd have to check with local game wardens about whether it's public land. I'm not sure.

Just saw a post on the LANWR FB page about the special rifle exotic hunts in April. Need to get the permits in person in march.

The first 80 people in line will get a permit. I bet that line starts way earlier than most expect. I agree, it will be interesting to follow along. Wish I could do it, I'll have to hope for a draw this year. Ready for a rifle hunt!

I won't be in the line but I will try for the draw again. I enjoyed the experience. Of course crossing paths with those big rattles may make me feel differently. Good luck to those trying

I agree with you GBludau, I think it's going to be worse than Black Friday. Their Facebook post about the hunt has 450+ comments and over 200 shares. But I'm still going to show up and try to get a permit, if I get one I'll be thrilled. If not, I'll just keep putting in for the draw every year.

Good Luck! Hope you're able to get a permit. I expect those that want it bad enough will show a day or 2 early. Bring a sleeping bag to get in line!

I called. They said nobody was going to be allowed to stay on the side of the road overnight. Just relaying what they told me.

I figured that would be their response. Wonder how they plan on enforcing that and also what time or how early they'll allow people to start lining up? I think they should consider handing out numbers just like the stores do on black Friday.

They didn't give any specifics.

I mentioned that it was going to be like when the new iPhone comes out people line up the day before at the stores and that is when they said nobody was going to be allowed to do that.

I guess if you show up too early they will run you off or arrest you if you refuse to leave. I think the road to the entrance is technically park property also so be careful.
