I tried uploading this video from town, but it had sound issues. Somebody mentioned it could be ACS, and I believe them now as I'm up in Prudhoe and can get the video to download correctly onto Youtube now.
Anyhow, here is my neice, Sydney, on her first hunt. Quite the way to start out hunting by taking a moose! My brother, dad and I accompanied her on the hunt.
We did make one mistake on this hunt, and it was by not having her wear ear protection. Lesson learned and we get a reminder each time we watch the video. It is our responsibility to make sure they are safe out there, and that includes ear protection and gun safety. You can see a couple times where she whips around pretty quick with the rifle, and we made sure to point out the little things and help her start good habits. She took the first shot, and as the moose was heading for the treeline my brother took a backup shot that hit her in the spine a little back. Sydney took the third shot, but as you can see the moose was already starting to fall. My brother rang out a final shot as the moose was falling shortly after Sydney's shot.
We are really hoping either her younger sister or one of my daughters pulls this tag in the future, because Sydney would love to guide them. She was a real trooper on this hunt and was a pleasure to be in the field with.
I can't remember how to embed the video into this thread, so if somebody could do that for me I would appreciate it. Here is the link. I also included a link to the bull moose I called in up north while looking for grizzlies along the pipeline. I played a little too much with him and he decided to charge. We had all sorts of fun with moose this year, definately a season to remember.
