I thought it would be interesting to gauge the success of our hunts based on the mode of transportation. I realize the word "success" is subjective when it comes to hunting, but in this context it means the actual killing of an animal. It doesn't necessarily have to be a "trophy book" animal, i.e. the ones just for the freezer count too. Heck, while we are at it, if you went on a hunt and had tag soup, put that down.
Some modes of transportation that first come to mind...
Canoes, Yaks, Rafts, etc
Feel free to be more descriptive. For example if the plane or boat is chartered or owned, if the ATV is a tracked vehicle, etc.
You can simply list the categories and the animals taken or for added eye candy, post a pic and the mode of travel.
Only Alaska animals count and we'll go back 10 years to 1996 (07 hunting season really hasn't started). You can list any alibis you might have, for instance, if you only moved to the state 3 years ago, are a non-res, etc.
I'll go first...
Moved to the state in 98 and left in 02. I return each season as often as I can; sometimes twice a year, sometimes once...sometimes not at all.
