I was fortunate to draw the winter hunt on Ft. Rich, and shot my first moose with a bow on Dec 17th. Wow, what a thrill. Always wanted to get a moose, but to get it with a bow, that was awesome. A bull that had dropped his antlers already. We looked for his antlers, but couldn't find them. Pretty sure they were 65 1/2" . )
30 yard or so shot, slick trick magnums, Bowtec Allegience.
My son Jonathan didn't get to see me shoot him, but he was there for the work. It took us 7 1/2 hours to haul the meat out. I would do it again if it took twice as long, shoot, even 3 times as long.
We also got to see some wonderful country that most of you call home...you lucky dogs.
Special thanks to Chris for helping me butcher him and loaning me sleds and pack frame; Taylor for coffee, sled, pack frame, garage, etc.; Chris C for bear burgers and bear brats, etc; Bob, Kim and kids for food, friendship and hospitality; Paul for the hospitality. It was great to meet some of you and you helped us rookies out a lot.
Now that this one is off the list, got to get going on the next one.
