    Default home for FEW HOURS, 2000lbs of meat hauled

    well here is a start.... my first big bull....after 9 days afield... Daniel in Ak shows up.. 11 am.. by 6 15 one moose down...




    daniel in ak. and my old buddy Ray.

    with my guy...


    now here is the kicker... these guys get up from photo and drop a spike 500 yards further down the creek from this one.... by 630 two moose down... Dainel was on his FIRST moose hunt. he called it moose shooting not moose hunting.




    headed back out.. we left it all behind with a broken wheeler and trailer to get the meat out....


    man was i TIRED... the night before camp next to us shot a bull i skinned and then had to work on the 6 foot Black Bear i shot while it was stalking the guy while he was shooting his moose...

    photos and full story to come later...

    have fun all

    LOL rest of the fun.. you have no idea

    in short i skinned 3 moose and a bear in ONE 24 hour period... had my honda blow a ball joint and a trailer bend an axel...


    we had great weather until the night after the moose all went down and started POURING. we decided ONE trip out would be required.

    it was good to shower and sleep in my bed but will be headed out again in a few... this year i have kept a daily Journal... so will post my 20+ days of moose hunting with pics when all caught up...

    Sounds like a "ton of fun" The ball joint and axle are what makes it an adventure!

    Default The insanity of having fun--3 moose, 1 bear & 24 hours

    I know you had fun, but that much fun can kill a man or at least disable him till next season . Congratulations!

    Vince, make sure that within 4 days of the last trigger being pulled you have all your stories and pics posted here - - - - or at least some member(s) here (who shall remain nameless... that do ignition interlock devices for work) might think you're a tightwad!

    Seriously though, great hunting; post'm when you can.

    Working on it steve but i need my parts in. so i can go get the rest of the gear.

    i broke my camera so am dependent on the others to supply photos. ( thats three camera in 3 years)

    got the Blk bear sealed today... 18" even on the skull and 6'x6' even on the hide.

    we are off in the am. as soon as Honda has my part ready for me. prolly out until friday. my buddy still wants to try and fill his tag

    i would not let him this weekend as we had too much already to deal with.

    and i do all the work, he can hold a hide or leg, but Daniel and i did all the picking upping and cutting.

    If I was up that way, I'd offer to come by and help.

    Huntress, go to this thread and read the first post in it, where Vince decided that waiting 4 days after the trigger being pulled without posting photos here constitutes being a "tightwad"...

    Don't mind me... I'm just measuring Vince with his own yardstick...
