I did a project out there a few years ago. 120 miles from the nearest store, there are some strange folks out that way, like Deliverence style weird. Aside from the locals which account for a handful of folks, there is a influx of small claim miners who come to the roadhouse for a drink. The store/ gas station are owned by the same family which owns the roadhouse, thus they open and close as they please and I don't believe they stay open much past September.
IMO if you are looking for a bush experience that is not road accessible you might take a look at McGrath. It's one of the villages that I might consider ok to live in, and the hunting and fishing there is considered outstanding

What exactly are you looking for in a place to live in Alaska........??? And roughly what do you bring with you to make that possible......?

There are many places you can live where you will have no human contact if that is a goal, and many of those are road accessible.

In Alaska just because a property is road accessible does not mean other humans.

I go to town (4) four times a year for supplies.......I only have human contact if I go to where there are humans. But I can drive to my property in 4X4 truck in the summer, or chained up most of the winter (the truck has a removable snow plow)........and if need be I can haul in supplies with a snow machine.

Well, you could have my set-up for $870,000.00

My point is it takes a lot of money to live the lifestyle you quest. I would suggest you budget about $15,000.00 for start-up cost to become a trapper, and you should be profitable with-in three or four years. So you will need another $8,000.00 to $14,000.00 for each of those years to subsidize the effort, and stay alive. So bring about $90,000.00 to $120,000.00 cash, work you butt-off doing a semi-dangerous trade for four or five years just to break even.

If you are serious........move to an Alaska city, get a job, work, save lots of money, learn the truth about the "Easy" & "FUN" and romantic life in the wilderness from those who are (Busting-Their-Butt) doing it.

Then just keep moving more and more rural. Your NOT going to just jump into what you want, unless you have a lot of money. For about a half-million you could buy a place, plus have enough to sustain you for about five or eight years.

Not trying to discourage you, but you should have been here 40 to 50 years ago. When land was free, Wilderness construction employment was available, and Alaska was just coming of age.

That is a realistic and pretty accurate description of what it would take.

Better yet... Please don't.

Not trying to be rude, but lots of people come up here with those ideas, get whipped, and go back home. I'd rather fewer people come up and leave our woods alone.

Alaska attracts way too many people full of **** and vinegar and something to prove.

You would be correct. I don't. But I do know how people who fantasize about making it in the wilderness up here tend to be.

I also want to see more people leaving the state, not arriving.
