    Default I love old hunting pictures

    I appropriate them from all manner of sources.
    Here is one I really like:Attachment 36935

    And here is another that I think I got from this site:

    Here's yet another that seems to have one of the same guys as in the trackster (and BTW, one of the guys in the vehicle looks a lot like Hal Waugh):

    The Trackster Photo was taken off the Petersville Road. I know two of the guys in the photo.

    The other is Hal W. before he went senile. After he got his hunting in and was done, he like Roosevelt, wanted the area locked up. He was successful in getting areas closed to motorized hunting, like the Clearwater Controlled Use Area. A real slug of a guy.

    Gotta say, I don't share your opinion of Waugh. I believe him to have been the consummate ethical guide (and I'm not a big fan of guides). I have never heard that he had dementia. I believe he died planning to continue guiding, but from complications of the flu.

    Anyway, I'd love to see more old pictures if anyone has some... even the 70s would be cool.

    Old hunting pics? I thought there'd be a lot of pictures of Sayak.

    The first pic entitled Valdez moose sure looks like Denali Park road about 10 miles in.....

    Alas, Sayak has no pictures of Sayak's hunting trips. My hunting partner from Dillingham was always the recorder of our trips on the Wood River lakes, and the Nushagak. I believe he took pictures of all our quarries over a ten year period. I have lost touch with him and all the photos of our hunts if he still has them. Rather sad, really. Now I use my cell, to record fish, birds, etc. I got my first moose in years last September but the little forker taken in my yard didn't seem to merit a picture (but it sure tastes great!).

    How about you KTKN? You're about half a century older than me and should have lots of shots of bear and blacktail kills from the 50s upward.:-)

    Hey KTKN-
    Hal Waugh died in the Ketchikan hospital, ironically enough.

    Well guys, I see lots of snide remarks (some at my expense), which is fair turnabout, but no pictures from any of you. Hmmm...

    I posted the track rig pic a few years ago a friend of mine now owns the rig and the pic came with it. The reason I posted it was to show that in the 60's the leaves were on the trees and moose antlers were rubbed. So the thought that the falls were warm
    mer than they used to be was bogus. It's a great pic.

    A cool picture from a local book showing the Fatherinlaw in the 50's comming to Noorvik for freezeup. Not a "Hunting picture", but the man never stopped hunting, only slept.
    Told me there could be no Heaven for him if it didnt have Hunting.

    Great picture SIASL! I wish it was bigger though. The old native folks only knew one main concept: survival. Everything revolved around getting one thing or another from the land at any given time of the year. Those people were made of iron. There are but a few of them left.

    The trout one is sure to make AKPM crap his pants! I wonder if anyone can identify what part of Kenai Lake "Wild Bill" dropped his bull on.
