    try talking your way into them. tending grunts every so often, slow steps lots of pauses, break twigs occasionally like a browsing moose. be amazed!

    Congrats on your moose. I have been hunting for 11 days so far. Passed on cow/calf on day one and saw 3 today but no shot. I have put miles in on both sides of the highway. Back at it in the morning.

Was about a mile from the truck and the wife helped haul the quarters in two loads. Like everyone said, the limited snow was crunchy. The recent fresh snow was great to help quite things down a bit but short lived. As temps reached 38 degrees Thursday and things began to melt then re-freeze Thursday night it was nearly as crunchy as the first week. This is my first year getting this permit after being in Alaska 11 years. Seems the moose were well scattered as I put on some significant miles in several training areas over the course of 5 days hunting hard all daylight hours.

    We have until Jan 15 to hunt.

I found this girl bedded in some trees off Bulldog midday. When I called in I was told that was only the second moose taken so far. Now just have to get her in the freezer and find one for my hunting partner. Good Luck to everyone.
    Congrats on you moose. I have been hunting 425 myself. I know I have found about a dozen beds, but nothing in them.. I heard that there might have been another one taken today but don't know for sure. Maybe I am doing this hunt all wrong. I have been sitting in an area waiting for a moose to cross on of the trails. That mile and half hike every day is not doing my back or knees much good. But tomorrow is another day.

    We walked the roads, but also hunted places we could drive into.
