Honestly I aiming at a subsistence lifestyle. I’m looking at the Kenai Peninsula due to its small towns, multiple airports and access to Anchorage by road. Although I want to live off the land as much as possible I’ll work my way there slowly. I have read that the bush is hungry country. I have heard within each area around Alaska each species to hunt has its time there. Am I about right? With Alaska having many types of climates certain animals move a lot, and some are only found in a certain area. For us down south that would mean going a county or city over to hunt. I guess in Alaska it will be a plane ride. Question there.. I have heard some areas and people barter and some do not. Being an Avionics technician I might be able to work for some bush pilots in exchange for rides. Anyways, from what I have seen on paper the Kenai peninsula could provide my family with meat year round due to a diverse range of land and sea species. For larger species and hunts I can fly out being conveniently located next to many airports. I know the best advice on animal movement and behavior will be from the locals though. That will come after many beers, and hunting stories. As I hear Homer is a nice place to grab some brews.
That sounds like a decent plan. Planes and boats are big up here, and there is a definitely a nitch to fill in the service and repair roles for both.The Kenai Peninsula is a great area, that's where I would suggest you look if your planning to move here. There are decent sized air fields in several of the cities here. Kenai, Soldotna, Homer, and Seward would probably be your best bets. Kenai's airport is the largest on the peninsula by far, and has a fair sized commercial terminal as well.And there are two sides to every coin, cuz while the economy is not at its best right now, the housing market has dropped, and you can get a house and property here relatively cheap compared to most places in the US.Please feel free to ask any questions that I can help you with brother.
My brother is a real estate agent who specializes in very large tracts of agricultural land. We have been watching several properties of just land, and some with homes. The price is unbeatable, and later I can get more land further into the bush for cheaper than the property around the city.
