On the 3rdof Sept. My son and I drive to Fairbanks and fly out on the 4th for a few days of moose hunting.  If He does not get one I have a cow tag that runs thru Nov. 27th and will go back up there for mine later.

Good luck to you both knapper.

Never kick a dead coyote, especially one that ain't dead when your gun is still in the kitchen. Just ask your favorite Yooper what will happen. But if its a bobcat in a 330 coni and you think he's dead,,,,,Think again.. And we know you were wearing less than your PJ's on the last one you shot !

                                                       

                                                         

20 years ago we had Johnny Cash, Bob Hope and Steve Jobs. Now we have no Cash, no Hope and no Jobs. Please God, don't take Kevin Bacon !

 

If you want to be successful, Be like a postage stamp, Stick to it until you get there

I learned that this year we were early.  The weather has been too warm and there has been little frost to move them around.  We also learned that it is never a sure thing, that unless you get one down it one expensive camping trip.  I took the old marlin the one that I already owned and my sun used a 300 win mag.

At least the cost of a resident tag and reduced travel make for a lesser expense than the rest of us would have.  Could you hunt moose later yet this year?

Yes I have a archery cow tag for the Fairbanks area that runs through to Nov. 27th.  My son had never got a moose before so we went on that one for him to get one.  His was an any bull tag for the area we were in.  We had a great time and many laughs, it was nice to spend time with him out like that.

here are a few pictures of our camp and the airplane that took us in.  The tent is on the biggest piece of level ground with a slight slope to it.

That's a small tent.  Sleeping on the ground there had to be uncomfortable and a place where you could roll out of bed - and right into the drink.

 

How did you pick such a site to land the plane and camp there?

It was the only dry flat place that we had on the lake. I remembered it from last year when I was in there, it was better than I set the tent up last year.  We slept with our heads up hill and kept sliding down hill some during the night.  It is a small tent yes, and we had to keep the weight down flying in.  The ground was not bad and did not have lumps.
