Re: WHO'S HUNTING
AA1911, good picts, thanks. I'd just luv starting the wide track and head out for some caribou, but it's minus 37 this morn and my knees are a achin; suppose to warm up by mid week. The kids will be home from school nx month for xmas, there will be time for some shootin.
Hey Hillbilly, Where you at down there. Originally we were from South of Pittsburgh, had friends from down in W Va. In 80's and early 90's went to Jamboree in the Hills bunch of times, good times for sure. Thing about hunting in Alaska, is it can be great or a bust. Last August & September, our migration went north 150 miles from where they usually come through. We got bou, but had to work for them, in other words; it wasn't like there was 400 caribou walking past on both sides of you and you were trying to decide on which double shovel you would take; so ya never know how the hunting is going to be. I think my buddy just got too old on me, 72 years old and all he did was complain about how his wife had shut him off and he wanted to do was have his way with the old Indian grandmas, man it was tough watching him as when he was younger, he was an old hound for sure. Anyway, if I could predict a good year, sometimes the caribou are just here there and everywhere for a couple months, I'd give ya an invite. My luck, I have 4-5 fantastic years, invite friend up and huntin goes to crap; leaves me dumbfounded. Two years back, my AR-10 got three moose, all small bulls in upper 40s and half racks; then this year I just got one. I have freezer full of moose & caribou but this last huntin season wasn't the best I've seen. Are you able to take a week or two off on short notice in Late August or September; bout all it would cost ya is plane tickets & license. I just hate showing friends picts, send them bou jerky, and then when they come up have a poor season and in my life it has happened twice and I keep saying, never again, ha ha. I'm sure you know how that goes.
