While the wife and i were out Ptarmigan hunting this year we ran across one of the most regeal animals in alaska i think a wolverine and was able to get back to the truck and grab the rifle and we were off in search of him hoping and praying we may see him again let alone get a shot at him. Luck was on are side i had the wife stay on the ridge as i went lower to see if i could see him and he must have been behind a little mound when i left he came out the wife got a shot on him come to find out these animals are amazingly strong so the chase was on. I took the rifle from the wife and went off after him not wanting her to chase a wounded animal and finaly found some tracks in the snow and the tracking was on, hundred yards later he was hiding under a small spruce trees so i circle around to ge the finishing shot on him. That was one of the best hunting trips i have had in alaska oh and not one bird shot. Oh and its always fun to find out how much you can put your body through when your heart is racing, then the next day it sets in. Ran the top of the mountain to get to him. Pics coming soon.
