Yup, quite a moose! (y)

Drawing the once-in-a-lifetime moose tag is.... difficult. I believe that the hunter had 30 points!

Basically, we build a point every year we're not selected. He may have accumulated points in other ways as well. Sometimes they're granted for turning in a poacher or something. But ya, 30 points... Sigh..

I don't think I'll live long enough to draw the tag and am in the process of deciding if I want to even continue to purchase applications for moose, bighorn and mountain goat. Chances of being drawn are extremely slim.

I do hope my youngest son continues to apply for points, he's not yet 30... I started applying for him when he was pretty young. Maybe a chance of being drawn someday?

Congrats to the hunter! Excellent moose.

Guy

Drove up there once and got a grizzly and a wolf. What an awesome trip!

Fly up there every couple of years to fly fish for silvers, near Cordova. Love it!

Moose? Maybe...

My buddy came up to AK 2 years ago, taxidermist has his 65” bull. He’s letting the local gun shop keep it for now hahaha.
