for us up north the main hunting season, moose, has already come and gone. i only got to go out for a weekend and covered about 140 miles offroad and chased a couple but went out with an unpreparred hunting partner who ruined my one shot with his impatience.

just for reference here is the general coordinates of where we camped:

62.40N, 147.45W

just a little ways out there, lots of great scenery and wilderness. always love the feeling of knowing the nearest people are 60-70 miles away!

yeah i have to say i miss deer hunting, the only deer out here to hunt you have to fly to and if i am going to pay for a flight i am going to adak for caribou.

maybe if i get a moose one of you would be willing to trade some moose meat and halibut and salmon for some venison?

diversity is good in my opinion <laughs>

Its amazing ,that it will take me a month getting ready for a week long hunt .

I just loaded up some 44mag. for practice & got the DSG (designated slug gun )ready to test fire , just to make sure it is printing the same . Just love the trigger job by Bill springfield , so it should be spot on .

I have made a different loading (added one grain more of 2400 ) for the Anaconda & will see how she does.

In my # 1 stand ,I can shoot up to 200yrds, so the slug gun will be with me the first day & the anaconda the rest of the week .

Can't wait , just not thrilled about the 13 hr. drive.

It was a brutal week ,but shot a nine point bruiser at 1300 hrs , Thursday from 158 paces in a tree stand .

I walked it off when I got down so at least I could believe it . Not bad for a 12ga. slug gun .

If it wasn't for the sprinkling of snow I would have not seen him. Had to put the Nikon on nine power & he drooped like a rock. YUM YUM
