So when I flew to Nunivak this last February, I told my transporter Abe David that I was going to shoot the first bull Ox I saw. True to my word I did. Well I just found out, six months later, that he’s quite a critter. Had the old fella measured last week by B&C scorer here in Anchorage and it went 110 and some change. B&C minimum is 105. The scorer said it’s the biggest one he’s done from Nunivak. Abe kept telling me he was the biggest one he’d seen. The picture is in the gallery, but here are a couple more of me and Abe with the prehistoric fur cow.
Truely a once in a lifetime experience, and much harder than I imagined. I can't say enough about Abe. His equipment was reliable and in great shape, his family welcomed me into their home and I enjoyed spending time with them. I don't think you'll find a better transporter, or guy on the island.
