Well I debated whether I should put the whole story on the forum with the pictures we have and then I decided that David would probably kill since it would take up so much room. I've been typing up our ten day moose hunt for the last couple days, and have finally completed. I think it paints a pretty good picture of our hunting experience. If you'd like a good, long, read check it out; or at least have a look at all the pictures.

Here are a few pics from the hunt as well.

Thanks

Thanks

Thanks for the kind words...I usually don't post much on this forum because some folks tend to pick apart threads. I just wanted to share my love for Alaska.

As for sisters??? Nope just two brothers. Sorry guys...

Congrats!

What a great story, and the pics to go with it! Congratulations to the three of you (and the two dogs). I doubt you'll ever forget that hunt.

Thanks!

Thanks!

Jill,

Thanks for posting the story; I just spent an hour reading it and some of the other stuff on your website. Nice!

I'm so glad the two of you are living your dream here; it reminds me that these ARE the "good old days" that some are saying are lost. I hope you have many happy years making memories like these, and that you will continue to share them with the hunting community. You have to develop a thick skin in order to post here regularly (believe me, I know!), but in the end it is worth it if you can help someone else live their dream too.

The highlight of my year so far was helping a good friend take a mature bull moose after a 15-year oddysey covering literally hundreds of miles by river, airplane and on foot. He hung in there and kept trying. Eventually it paid off.

Best of luck to you as you prepare for winter!

Regards,

-Mike

Jill & Aaron,

Thanks for bring that spark of excitment back to me if only for the last hour as read through your website. I love Cantwell and Nancy lake area. Looking at your pictures reminds me of those places.

Thanks again, Bigmnt

Very cool pictures and website.

The timeline journal of your cabin is spectacular. That looks like a lot of work, but well worth it.

WOW!

She said that if that Aaron guy goes missing that the cops better check on all you guys at the outdoor directory for information.
Especially those guys that posted ' "do you have a sister?"..

You definitely earned those Moose

You definitely earned those Moose

I know you said you felt cheated by how "easy" the first Moose was taken, but as any hunter knows you don't always bring home the quarry. Pay your dues and eventually an "easy" one comes along.

Great website and story. Thanks for taking the time to share it with us.

By the way where did you get the rack for your truck? That looks like something I could use.........

truck rack

truck rack

Which rack were you referring to??? The moose rack or the top rack....LOL. We got the topper at REI in Anchorage. They usually have a good sell on them around March. We've made good use of it.
