Thread: Alaskan Dream Season

  1. #1

    Default Alaskan Dream Season

    Your employer has given you a one year Paid Leave of Absence...You have been lucky and received all your draw requests for any hunt. The wife gives you the green light and it is January 1st and you're not hung-over. Plan your year's fishing and hunting trips. Spring bear on Kodiak...to December Moose meat hunt.

    When and what are you going to do???

    After all that hunting, you forgot your $35 Gift Certificate to Lulu's House of Exotic Dancing and small engine repair, conveniently located on the corner of 36th and Spenard. They do sort of a "seasonal" business.

    I am going to the doctors office to make sure I am not hallucinating before I spend all that loot and severally piss off the wife
    Than watch out moose and mule deer - hunt as many states, provinces etc as possible and wear a smile an undertaker couldn't remove!
    When asked what state I live in I say "The State of Confusion", better known as IL....

    In January it would probably be just Musk Ox in AK then off to Montana for Mountain Lion. Back to AK for spring bear, followed by salmon fishing and scouting during the summer. August would be Sheep and Caribou in the Brooks. September would be Moose and Goat. After that I would head to MT for Archery Elk for the last two weeks of the season. Stay in MT for Antelope in Mid OCT, and Mule deer on the Missouri Breaks in NOV. Starting in December I would hunt Mountain Lion and Bobcat in MT. Then I would return to Alaska and hope that my wife hadn't taken off with the kids because I hadn't been home in a year!
