Awesome. When did ya go. Looks like a fun trip. And congrats on the big moose


Drew,

The season was Sept 1-15 but we were delayed due to weather with 130 MPH winds and ended up hunting Sept 5-14. Got picked up early due to another storm coming in with 100 MPH winds.

Funny thing they had 2 storms while we were there with winds over 100 MPH and they barely even mentioned it on the news. And they sure didn't call for the national guard or federal assistance. ;\)

Something about that state will make you want to live there.... every other person was wearing camo and every airport looks like a taxidermy studio. If it weren't for the winters I'd be packing my bags.

Awesome Daniel, Two years UPSMAN and I will be ready. You need to go back with us. Plus Bill needs to kill one.


Count me in.... Sure will be easier packing one out with 4 people.

However since Bill and I did it alone, we will let you guys handle the first one by yourselves just so you can get the FULL enjoyment we experienced.

That is awesome! Congrats on a great bull! I really miss that place haven't been up there in about 8 years...Gotta get back soon. I'd love to do a DIY moose hunt a couple years down the road.

High Adventure Air out of Soldatna

Only flying out. Did have a black bear encounter.

Luckily he came to calling at camp and the total packing was only .2 miles to the lake for pickup. I actually shot him at 150 yards while standing next to our camp fire. With hindsight being 20/20, I would have waited for him to walk into the campfire before shooting him again. Every yard we could save in packing distance would have been awesome.

When I first sighted him we were getting dressed to hike a mile to a real "moosey" spot we had found the day before. WDS had to snap me out of my trance to get my rifle that was still laying next to my bunk in the camp. Funniest 3 minutes of the entire trip. To say we were rattled is an understatement.

Of the 4 bulls sighted, 3 (still trying to determine if 2 were the same bull from photos) came to calling at camp on the lake. I attribute that to being the location we spent the most time consistently calling from. We called every 30 minutes whenever we were awake no matter the location. Grunts, thrashing, scraping and cow calls.

Is the land you hunt open to just anybody or is it accessible to only a particular outfitter/guide service and the general public as well? Great photo's and congratutlations on such a great animal and pricless memories....

My understanding is it is public ground and can be accessed by anyone. However the outfitter we flew with has been putting hunters into this area for 35 years and are pretty secretive of "their" honey holes.

If you research we were in area 17B and was restricted to moose, black bear and wolf by non-residents. Caribou herd has been falling in numbers in that area.

The area we hunted does not allow any motorized vehicle except for planes delivering hunters. So float hunt or base camp /drop hunt are the only options. There are no roads and it was a 2.5 hour flight by float plane from Soldatna.
