I do know the song of a beagle or redbone/bloodhound mix and I do agree that it is the best damn sound in the world second only to the throaty rumble of my 69 GTX 's 426 Hemi.

here in Ny we use the dogs to run bunnies and coons, heck I never thought of running deer with em, cuz it's illigal here, but it do sound fun. some day I hope to try it I'm gonna talk to the wife and try to use a weeks vacation sometime to do it. Thanks for the idea,
man! ya gotta love this forum

Stubby,

If you want a short range hunt you should try handgun hunting.

Spectre,

Yes, I think your .35 Whelen will be an excellent all-around Alaska cartridge. I use a .350 Rem. Mag which is ballistically identical - a .35 Whelen stuffed into a short action.

Where in Alaska are you moving to?

Juneau is nice, but crowded. You're on a limited road system with 30,000 other people. You need a boat to get out away from people, but of course that's the case in a lot of Alaska. I don't know what your trade is but Juneau is a good job market, as is Anchorage.
Juneau is on the ferry system so it's cost effective to put your rig aboard and go down the Inside Passage to some of the best hunting in Alaska. The northern islands have brown bears and the southern ones have black bears. They all have deer and goats.

I'm going to start a new thread. I'll appreciate any input you care to give.
