Got a letter in today from Bethel Fish and Game saying that I've won a bull musk ox permit (DX003) from being the next in line on the alternate list! I've been trying to get a musk ox tag for several years, so I'm all jacked up for this opportunity! I've got a friend that might come along, but there is a chance I'll be going solo on this one. I'll be using a transporter but I'll need to figure out which one.
Any information that some of you could share would be appreciated. I've got some dates in mind, so I need to get things lined out with a transporter soon to try and get them locked in. How long does a transporter give you to get a bull? I'm going with the bow, so I might need a few days instead of just a run and gun type of hunt. Do you stay with the transporter, or is there a hotel there? How much do the transporters charge? How much for a non-hunting companion?
It'll be a while before I come off of this high! I'm loving the fact that I've got a killer hunt lined out for the middle of winter now.
