    I am from Kodak, Alaska, I miss it so much!!! If i could talk my husband into it we would move back in a heartbeat. As far as visiting? I’d love to see Sitka and the Southeast part of Alaska.

    I have bee an avid iditarod fan for the past 37 years and my dream
    Is to watch the winner cross under the arch in Nome, Alaska, I have been to Homer, Alaska fishing and loved it but seeing the iditarod in person would be the ultimate dream trip for me!!

  • Paula says: February 6, 2013 at 2:24 pm

    My husband and I went to Anchorage for a sight seeing tour and then onto Kodiak for 4 days of fishing! We had such a great time, we will be back for the fishing, add in some hunting and see the sights along the way. It is a beautiful place and I can’t wait to go back!

  • Linda K Miller says: February 6, 2013 at 10:55 am

    Moose! It’s all about northern moose! Rifle or crossbow, I would love to bag a big bull moose from Alaska.

  • Michelle Bodenheimer says: February 5, 2013 at 10:44 pm

    I can’t wait to get up to Alaska on a caribou hunt. How amazing it must be to watch herds migrate over the tundra. One of these days I will make it a reality!

  • Lisa Fundel says: February 4, 2013 at 8:34 pm

    My ultimate dream is to be able to go bear hunting with my Dad before he gets to old to go. He is 65 and not in the greatest of health. Alaska would be an awesome place to do this if I could afford it and talk him into it. A friend of mine lives there and I love seeing his pictures of the Northern lights and the wildlife. It looks so peaceful. Joe always brings Alaska to me here in Illinois through his pictures.

    Alaska represents all that is good and true about America. It is the land of exploration and adventure, self-fulfilling tests of strength and courage, boundless beauty and majestic vistas. I visited Alaska once and was not only impressed by the landscapes but also by the people – non-conformist neighbors, open to new experiences. Can’t wait to read about women who stretch their skills!

  • Marlo Fullerton says: February 4, 2013 at 5:48 pm

    I would really love to visit Alaska and hunt a moose. We don’t get to hunt them much here in Montana. Elk is our big game staple for meat. Just to get to visit Alaska and see all the sites would be an awesome experience.

    I went to Alaska on my honeymoon but I would love to go back and see Denali!

  • Karrie Herschberger says: February 4, 2013 at 5:25 pm

    I would be happy no matter what i was hunting, fishing or photographing up there, my only worry is that i’d NEVER EVER want to come home, take me to alaska…

  • Leslie Crawford says: February 4, 2013 at 5:25 pm

    I am an avid waterfowl hunter – and I would love to see what Alaska has to offer in the way of ducks and geese. I’d also love to take a big bull moose! 🙂

  • Pam Burkholder says: February 4, 2013 at 5:11 pm

    I would love to visit Alaska again. Last time we went fishing. I’d love to go up to hunt!

  • Donna Vanlandingham says: February 3, 2013 at 11:05 am

    My entire life I have loved seeing the mountains of New Mexico and Colorado, it has always been such a refreshing to my soul. You could say being in the mountains fills my bucket! Alaska has always been a dream and a desire because I know the awe I feel in the other states would be overshadowed by the greatness of the Alaska region! My husband and I hope to go experience Alaska for our anniversary some day in the near future! Thanks for the opportunity!

  • Andrea Fisher says: February 3, 2013 at 10:45 am

    Alaska is such a vast and wild place, almost right next door…..yet it seems so remote and far away! I have had Alaska on my to-do list and would love to see bear, caribou, moose and the natural beauty the State has to offer. Of course I would be taking my rifle! And I would love to meet these accomplished hunting women who call Alaska home.

  • Jo says: February 2, 2013 at 4:17 pm

    Visiting Alaska is on my to-do list. I’ve always wanted to go fishing and hunting there with the entire family! Woohoo!

  • linda spahr says: February 2, 2013 at 11:23 am

    I would love to visit Alaska to hunt and fish. Also, to see the natural beauty of the state. I’ve always wanted to visit.

  • Judy Black says: February 1, 2013 at 4:04 pm

    I just have to see the bears catching the salmon in the rivers. I have seen pictures and movies but I have to see them for myself.
    Being an avid hunter maybe by the time I travel to Alaska, I will find the courage to hunt the big bears. I have hunted black bears but the brown bear and grizzly’s are a different kind of hunt.

  • Marti Davis says: February 1, 2013 at 3:13 pm

    I would love to visit Alaska on a hunting trip!
