Those are some great pictures! It makes me want to trade in my horses on something with a winch.

Re: My Old Alaska Hunt Pictures

Many years ago we were several miles away from our base camp and we had a couple of moose down and it was getting late. We were not looking forward to spending the night away from camp even though we are always prepared for that eventuality. Traveling off trail is allowed in order to retrieve game and traveling across unfamiliar terrain after dark is asking for trouble and skinning and gutting two moose would definitly end up well after sunset. Well we scratched our heads a little and decided that we could lift a whole moose high enough to back one of the buggies under it and drive it back to the trail so that we could make our way back to camp after dark. This is one of those moose getting ready to load.

Re: My Old Alaska Hunt Pictures

Well I haven't posted any pictures yet this month so I thought that I'd include a couple of pics of other buggies that we encounter on our hunting trips. The first pic is of some old school buggies, they are old GMC military 6x6s that were cut down to 4x4s that have been modified so that they can articulate over the rough terrain and run C-130 tires with chains. The lead buggy had been in use for over 20 years at the time this picture was taken. The second is a retired oilfield rig, Detroit Diesel powered and running on 66 x 43 Terra Tires.
