Happy New Years! Finally got around to pulling a hunt report together - pretty good trip.
I had killed a monster bull moose five years ago and had booked to go back to that spot this past September. My buddy Dirk had established Alaska residency after moving up to Anchorage, so he was able to join me on this hunt. Someone was in “my” spot the morning we were to fly out, so we ended up at another location – in the long run, we would not be not disappointed.
Dirk killed this very nice brownie late on the first evening; he had to scramble and run around a 1/2mile to cut him off, but eventually got to within 80yds of the boar and made a good off-hand shot. The bear fell within 30yds. We spent most of the night rolling around the tussock tundra with this guy just trying to get him skinned. He fell in a hole and we couldn’t roll him out or roll him over. We got back to camp at 3:30 the next morning. NOTE: The dates on the pics are not accurate.
