Re: My Old Alaska Hunt Pictures

There are many things about hunting in Alaska that are a bit different than most places. The manner in which we arrive at our destinations is a bit different from a lot of other hunting locations. It is common to use float planes, jet boats, air boats, atvs and utvs, tracked vehicles and many different types of off road vehicles.

My wife and I chose to build our own off road rigs commonly known as moose buggies, tundra buggies or swamp buggies. These buggies allow us to access hunting areas that could not be hunted by a lot of other methods. It takes us 2 days of travel, if we don't have any problems, to get to where our hunting camp is located. We stay out for 3 weeks or more at a time and we have to be self sufficient while we are out. We have encountered temperatures as cold as 0*, snow and mechanical problems. For the most part we practice spot and stalk hunting but we do a fair amount of calling later in the season as the rut progresses. The buggies allow us to retrieve animals once they are down and they also allow us to skin and gut a moose without having to do it on the ground.
We can also use them to skin a bear while it is hanging.

Here are a couple of pics of the buggies in action.

Those buggies are way cool. I saw a picture of a Toyota Landcruiser from AK set up similarly. It was painted John Deere Green and had lugged tractor tires on it. Always wanted to build something similar.

Here's a couple moose racks and black bear hide and skull. The next one is teh black bear skull, from the first pic, sitting on the skull of a griz that squared 8 1/2 feet.
