After quite a few unsuccessful hunts for black bear in PWS, moose, and Haul Road caribou, my wife now has a trophy for the wall.
We went into a new area for us, a strip at what we thought was an abandoned mining claim in 20a. Turns out there was another miner still on the claim, and his party showed up the morning after we did. Took him by surprise, so he was a bit miffed initially, but then they all became friendly when we assured them we would try to deconflict. They gave us some great advice about where/how to hunt the area, so on the third evening after an early supper, we sat and saw the ONLY moose we saw the entire trip, including the drive to/from Fairbanks.
He's no stud, but my wife made a great series of shots, then shook so hard I had to notch her tag for her. We butchered until 1 am, one light failed (extra batteries in camp), hauled one load out, then after about 3-1/2 hours sleep, got up and finished the job and hauling. Lots of yummy tender meat (tenderloins last night) and a nice European mount for the wall!
