Just wanted to share an exciting trip I've got planned in August. I'll be coming home from Afghanistan for R&R leave in the middle of the month, and it just happens to be the perfect time for big game. A friend in my unit and I are both taking our sons out for about 4 days. This will be my son's first big game trip. He's a bit small for the big stuff yet at 9 years, but he can handle the grouse and ptarmigan with his .410. I found out even brown bear season will be open then, so I'll have tags for browns, black bear, moose, sheep and caribou. Hopefully we'll fill the freezer!
