Have you ridden the Nebesna Road area?

Ed, Nabesna Rd trails have been closed for trail studies for about 3 years. Went in there last year and Park Circus said they have been reopened with a trail permit. When I hunted off Nabesna rd. we called it the barrens for lack of moose. And there were always rams but most sub legal.
Sorry I thought we were still talking 4 wheelers!

But the country alone is worth seeing! And some nice local residents live off of Nabesna rd.

Dealing with PS has at times been unpleasant depending on staff.

I rode a couple of trails off the Nabesna rd a few years ago while sheep hunting with my wife. Some pretty country back there, lots of sheep but not much in the way of legal rams. We had to get a permit to ride our wheelers from the PS and this was after we had driven nearly to the end of the Nabesna rd becuase we didn't know about the need for a permit until it was too late.

That's what I get for being gone so long.

Things change. PS has always been difficult. I think they intentionally recruit anti-hunters and ship them to AK.

Nebesna has always been one of my favorite areas. Yeah, not many moose, but it used to produce some BIG rams. Hopefully that will come back.

I'll definitley be going back down there again to ride but will probably skip the hunting. Like I said, beautiful country down that way.

I just thought this might be a good place to ask.... My son has a Yamaha Grizzly 80 that I bought him when he was 7. He's 12 now and although his skills have progressed to the point that he can get that little thing into some amazing places, I think he's ready to move up to something bigger and a 4X4. He's a bit on the small size for his age though, so light weight is a plus. I'll be buying used, so reliability is also a must. Any recommendations from ya'll?

Seems like a Honda Recon - though they are only 2X4 might be the way to go.

4X4 is a must, some of the places I take him on hunting trips just aren't passable without it. I typically use 2WD on my Grizzly, but it's big enough with huge tires to get through. His is going to be small enough that he'll need the 4X4 to make up for lack of ground clearance.
