Earlier this season I had a "dream shot" on a moose (see previous thread). I will try and post my GoPro video if I can get it to load up right. Two of us spent five days trying to track him down, but finally lost him for good. After five days I had to leave for the Slope and was not able to continue looking for him. I am back and ready to pick up looking, so I called the Elemendorf Conservation team. This bull has not been seen since the day I shot him. No wounded bull has been seen on base the last two weeks. Last, a Brown Bear has gone into this spot and has not left, apparently he has found a feeding source. Elmendorf does not allow any type of gun on base, so they advised me that I had exceeding the law requirements for trying to track down my animal and that they do not recommend I return for this animal. I'm really bummed out, but fully understand. As I look back and review all that I did, I really can't think of anything different I could have done. I would take this shot 100 out of 100 times as it was a perfect quartering away shot less at 38 yards, after watching him for over 10 minutes as close as 20 yards (Adrenalin rush gone by then, breathing under complete control), I was slightly higher than him, driving my broadhead through the onside ribs (I heard bone breaking), and the arrow pointing towards the opposite shoulder, well below the spine and in front of the guts. I immediately had a second arrow in my hand when he went down, but he jumped up and ran before I could take a second shot. The video clearly shows I did not break the on side front leg. I was able to track small blood spots (one drop about every 200 feet per GPS readings) but never any large blood areas. I was unable to find a blood tracking dog available when I needed one as they were all out in the field. Sometimes thing happen that we just can't explain.
