    Well done, Vince! Quite the pack compared to that last 'bou, eh?!

    Great job! I cant wait until mine start packing rifles!!! If I didn't have to spread the wealth still, this is definitely worth a few 'gold stars'!!

    Cool deal. That's the only way I'm getting a moose this year...either in the yard or on the way back and forth to work. This dang rain has set my siding and roofing jobs on my house back by a month and they have to get done Raining again, so here I am on AODD...

    Awesome to see kids getting to harvest. One of my fears in regards to the hunting culture is that my generation and the newest generation is going to lose touch with the outdoors all together. Glad to see some learning the way.

    I feel your pain! I bought that lot south of you and all summer every project there has been either on rain delay or taking way to much time due to rain!

    oh it will fill a few families freezers this year... we stopped on the way home with Ian's and gave some to a few old timers that can't get out any more... have a forum family headed over tonight to get part of this one... the kids have to learn that we share also as it aught to be.

    What a great bunch of kids those are, Definitely the Real Deal Alaskans, and smart too, talking "Nice Killsite Placement" AND "taking care of the Old Timers," also......

    That's one healthy looking family there Vince, Good Weekending Dad.

    and as for those kids, you're gonna have a Lot of Carnivorous Friends living like that, Yes, "as it aught to be, for sure !"

    LOL rain, now if i can get Alex to kill her moose in the same spot, but she will prolly make me work for it like her bou. this weekend will be spent helping ol sugar Ray fill his tag, he is itching to get his first moose also at 69 years old this year. I think i will be sick of skinning moose by the end of the month.. so much so that i my just let my tag go to waste
