Hauling moose and caribou trophies for $600 per animal to select states. 608-931-1119 (cell)
I intend to have my tractor and refrigerated trailer sitting in Anchorage from Sept 22 thru Sept 27. I will be hauling moose/caribou meat and antlers back to select states (see delivery schedule below). If you harvested your game and can have it in Anchorage during this time I will haul it for you provided you call me so we can meet up and load it, or call and I can even pick it up at one of the air cargos (at no additional cost to you). Some of you have family and friends in the Anchorage area who could temporarily hold your trophy if you leave early, if so they can bring your game to me and we'll load it, just call. Your meat and antlers will be placed on a pallet, shrink wrapped and labeled, ensuring your game does not get mixed up with others'. Once the truck gets back into the states, you, or your wife/friend will need to pick it up at any of the listed delivery stops where we will unload it from my trailer to your vehicle, at which time payment is due.
You can ship your game in most any configuration imaginable - on the bone, off the bone, in game bags, boxed, etc. Antlers can go split, unsplit, or even still attached to the whole head as for head mounts and Euro mounts. The points do not need to be wrapped or hosed, this isn't the airlines. Each animal ships for $600. Any second, third or fourth animal goes for $600 each. The trailer temperature will be set frozen. The truck leaves Anchorage on Monday Sept 27 noon. Moose and caribou only.
At the truckstop look for my truck either away from other trucks OR with the back of my trailer sticking out. Delivery schedule (all times local) My cell 608-931-1119

Juda Wis, Olin Oasis truckstop W2616 State Road 11/81. End of trip. The trailer will be here for these 5 days and there is plenty of flexibility on when you can pick up your moose/bou, especially for those who live some distance away. Simply call ahead so I can meet you. The trailer will remain frozen until the last animal is unloaded.
For those who may live halfway between stops, I will try to save you some unnecessary driving provided you call ahead and are willing to meet up at a stop on the interstate whenever the truck rolls through.
If you miss your preferred stop, you will have to call me and I will try to hold the truck for you briefly, or meet up en route at the next stop, otherwise you will be chasing the truck all the way to Wis. In the unforeseen circumstances this happens, be assured your meat/antlers will remain frozen in my trailer until you can pick it up or other arrangements are made. 1 week maximum guarantee on frozen meat. If after 1 week no arrangements have been made for re-delivering your moose/caribou meat at your expense or travel, I will donate it locally. NOTE - Undelivered antlers will absolutely positively remain in my secure possession until arrangements are made to get them back to you at your expense. I know first hand the value you place on meat and antlers, so do trust that if you accidentally miss your delivery, your meat and antlers will still be taken care of. The trailer will be LOCKED at all times.
For those who may have concerns with the shipment going through Canada - The only requirement is the proper paperwork which consists of US fish and wildlife service form Number 3-177 and Alaska transfer of possession form, all of which I will have. I intend to have an inspector from the Anchorage branch of US Fish and Wildlife Service inspect my loaded trailer prior to transport. This inspection is not required, however it does act as a safeguard for ease of clearing customs. The meat/antlers/ are insured for $1.00 per pound. Since it is illegal to sell moose/caribou meat, it is difficult to place a "market value" on it. Canadian customs requires I post bond at a rate dependant on value of the entire load. I will post bond for the value of the whole load, which is to be $1.00 per pound. This shipping service is for moose and caribou meat and their trophies ONLY. No bears or wolves, sorry.
Note for those flying with 40 mile air - I should be driving right past their place in Tok on Sept 27, so I would be able to pick up anyones game at this time, however you will need to make arrangements with 40 mile beforehand. I know seasons end early in this area but they have chilled coolers that you might be able to be utilize. Ask Leif, owner of 40 mile air. If this can be arranged to hold your game, you'll need to call me so I know and can stop to pick it up.
FINE PRINT PLEASE READ - For any and all shipments, I will need your name, address and phone number(s) on the Alaska transfer of possession form. This form needs to be signed by you and should accompany the meat and antlers, weather you ship from the village to Anchorage, bring it to me personally, or have a friend bring it. I will be flying within the state as many of you will, and Alaska weather is...Alaska weather. I can not be liable for delayed/canceled flights, wildfires in route, road closures, traffic, breakdown, USA/Canadian customs delays/impoundments/hassles, acts of God, or other unforeseen circumstances beyond my control preventing me from picking up and delivering on dates/times listed. Once your animal is harvested you should call my cell, ensuring your intentions to ship your trophy, and/or make arrangements for me to pick up your game at one of the air cargo lines. I'd prefer we talk and are set to haul before you go to the expense of shipping your meat from a village only to find ourselves in any type of unforeseen circumstance, then you faced with the dilemma of donating it all in Anchorage, or spending an enormous amount of money to take it on your flight home as excess baggage. If I do not answer my cell, it likely means I'm temporally in a bad cell coverage area, met a weather delay, road closure, unforeseen circumstances, etc. This offer is good for moose/caribou meat and antlers/trophies only, as I will not haul bear or wolf parts. I highly doubt the trailer will fill up to capacity, but in the event it does I will have no choice but to end booking. First come first served. I should be back in civilization, in Fairbanks, the afternoon of Sept 21, so feel free to start calling then, even from the bush on your satellite phone. My cell 608-931-1119
