    Default Jen's caribou, Claude's moose, and friends moose! Unit 13

    We had a great season! On the 15th, I was lucky enough to find a nice fork horn at dusk! 1 shot at 20 yards with the .375 Ultra did the job, in the neck. On the 17th, a friend got a nice 51" 4 brow moose at 30 yards, and on the 19th, Jen was able to connect with a nice bull caribou at 100 yards with her .243. Enjoyed a great time and are now enjoying all the good eating we have. Should have our sausage and such back from Delta in the next week or so. Really looking forward to that. Lil Bob was unable to connect this year, but he was there for 2 of 3 of the harvests and enjoyed that. He's back to working on getting a griz now. Thanks to all the great forum members that stayed with us and stopped by this hunting season. Was great meeting so many more of you!

    Outstanding,, what a wonderful place to get to live and share with family and friends. I was hoping to get a visit in, but had to put it off for a bit for health reasons.

    I'm sure Mr Bob will get what ever he sets his sights on.

    Claude, Congrats on the moose and tell Jen Congrats on the Caribou. If Bob doesn't get that grizz, he'll get plenty of critters during trapping season. I'm looking forward to staying up there again. I'm thinking about sometime in early Nov. Maybe snomachines, we'll see. Enjoy the eating.

    Glad to see you guys were successful even with all the traffic up your way.
    We do not go to the green woods and crystal waters to rough it, we go to smooth it. We get it rough enough at home; in towns and cities; in shops, offices, stores, banks anywhere that we may be placed

    Thanks for the great comments. Was a really nice season for us. With the meat we have, we are going to be hard pressed to eat it all by next hunting season, but I'm going to give it my best shot! We figure one moose and one caribou feeds us for the year, but ended up with an extra half of a moose. I sure wish I could have found the time to put some fish in the freezer, but maybe next year. Sure not going to complain!

    Yep, Vince, I finally had to let Jen out of the kitchen for just long enough to score on her caribou! She jumped in the car and ran the head up to Protaxidermy in Fairbanks, so we are looking forward to a nice lodge decoration.... just out of spite, with everyone sending the horns and heads in for mounting, I even sent my nice little fork bull horns in to put on a plaque... heh heh!

    Claude, Jen, and Bob you guys Rock! It's always a pleasure to read your posts and I always check in to see when you have put something up on here.

    Definitely gonna make it out to your place this winter to swap tall tales.

    Indy, we are still seeing 'laughing bulls' after your departure.. heh heh! They'll be waiting for you when you come back. I'm sure the season will be open well into December, if not longer.

    Thanks tailwind! Looking forward to swapping tall tales and adding to them!

    I love that idea, the "Fork Bull Trophy," mounted on the wall of the lodge,....you gotta post a pic of that for us
    just makes good sense, to be proud of a Full Freezer,...(it's a Local Folks thing, I guess, right?)

    Looks like you guys are "Lovin Life up there,".... and livin' it as it should be,...good eatin' to ya, makin room for next year

    and "Go Get 'em lil Bob," that ole' Griz is waitin' for your appointment, deep in the thicket, somewhere
