    Default Lynda's First

    Wanted to share my wife's first Alaskan animal with everyone. Not your typical Alaskan hunt, no fly in, no 4 wheeler in the mud, no 10 mile hike but the most excitement a man can have. My buddy comes to the house Saturday night, “got a spike fork bedded and think we can put Lynda on him, interested?” Not going into details as all reading this knows the answer. Next morning we pull up and she is looking sharp in her new camo. We get her loaded up and ease through the bush. The moose where already up and caught us coming in. Of course the cow is standing in front of the bull. So we do a final check with the bino’s for the spike fork qualification, get her set up for the shot and wait. Anyone who has been there knows how long a moose can stand and stare at you till he is ready to move. Finally he takes 3 steps forward and she says “can I shoot?” “I wou…boom” He trotted 40 yards up stopped, boom…30 yards and fell over. We verify, punch the tag, hugs and handshakes all around. Then she looks at me and says “I had to get camoed up for this.” I told her “no, but it makes the picture look better.” Left at 5 back at the house at 12 with the meat hanging. So now everyone understands my comment about friends. Only a true friend would pass a bull on to another to get his wife her first. Thanks buddy….

    The best and tastiest kind of moose-an easy one! Congratulations. Unfortunately, now she's spoiled.
