Re: My Old Alaska Hunt Pictures

Here are a few more pictures from the same '98 hunt. I shot a nice 'bou shown in the post above, during that same trip we had a grizzly going through camp in the middle of the night and my son and nephew were not comfortable with the bear wandering around outside their tent at night. The day that I shot the caribou we made it back to camp just as it was getting dark and lo and behold there was a griz at the meat poles. She started walking away and I ran up the top of the little ridge that our camp sits on and she had already turned and started making her way back to the meat poles and only about 20 yards away from me. One shot from my 375 H&H in the spine and it was over. The boys slept a little easier that night.

Took a nice moose that year too, and I wasn't the only one in camp that was successful. My son had recently returned from Saudi and gotten out of the army, good to have him home and out hunting with us. We took 4 moose, 1 caribou and 1 grizzly.

Re: My Old Alaska Hunt Pictures

Wow. I saw your buggys in Petersens 4wheel and off road a couple of years ago and thought they were awesome pieces of equipment. I have no use for something like that here but wanted one any way. It is even cooler to see what they do and all the awesome hunts that they have made possible. Congrats and I cant wait to get up to Alaska one of these years for a big moose and or caribou. Especially after seeing this thread.

Re: My Old Alaska Hunt Pictures

Speedo,
I noticed you guys were using blued/walnut rifles. What kind of care did they get to make sure nothing bad happened (rust etc.) while hunting out in the bush? Do you ever plan to switch to stainless/synthetic?
