I had an amazing time. I finnaly bagged a big game trophy up here in Alaska. Only my second animal I've shot in my life, The first a white tail doe in Montana. I know I am privaliged to draw a great permit. I put the story on my profile, all I can say is what a rush and a very lucky shot. One bullet from a 300 win mag that wasn't adjusted to me. But put her down, a double lung shot at 100 yards. It wasn't easy though. I put my time and effort into it. It was not an easy hunt until the last day. It took 11 days of hiking, snowmaching, and glassing fields. My piece of advice is when you are ready to give up give it another day or two or three. Also talk to as many people you can about the area and where they should be at. They are moving all the time. If any of you get a permit pm me and I love to give you some hints and people to talk to. Plus where you should stay cause they will let you know where they are and if they have seen any recently.
