Started off the morning at 9 to get up arctic valley the gate was closed and had to waited around for the MP's to open up the gate. I drive up to the spot and parked and walked in about a 1000 meters and worked down another 600 meters on slow spot and stalk. As I was moving down I look down and there are fresh tracks and a fresh bedded down area. I thought to myself there is going to be one down there stay alert. I work my way down along the tracks for another 100m's looking to my left then out the corner of my eye I see 1 moose and another and another all shooters. I was about 60 yards out from my first laze So I knocked an arrow and put my bow on top of my head and started grunting like a bull the moose and started my way towards them hugging the trees going down they were not even spooked just looked up and went back to browsing the cow steps five feet into a clearing and I knew I was close as I was going to get about 15-20 yards at most. Calmed my breathing down and took a well placed shot put at center mass punched all the way through to where my vains were barely hanging out. She ran 10 feet up circled around me and laid down right in front of me at 7 yards away. I knocked another arrow hoping she wouldnt get back up again as soon as I saw her lay her head down I knew it was over. I wasnt going to stick another one in her and have her run further down the gorge it would of been hell to get her out. I just sat and watched and let nature take its course a few minutes later lights out. Packing was a breeze found a trail and slid out all the cuts on two large sleds. Thanks to my buddy matt. I apreciate it man. From start to finish we were at the vehicle at 6pm. Moose was shot at 1145. I had to get out and meet the Natural resources guy and get all the paperwork done and tried getting my vehicle down. That was a lost cause so I left it and said I will get it in the morning it would be safer that way. I got all my gear together and hiked back in to my moose started skinning around 130 out by 6 on the
I would like to thank Don P. for allowing my to have this opportunity and Thanks Matt T. for all the help.
