Re: Heading north to Alaska!!

Thanks guy's.

The trip is looking great.

We've got a confirmation on our Beaver Float Plane as being a go.

Last year the entire trip was cancelled at the last minute because of a late/long winter that kept the interior lakes froze. Our bags were packed, vacation time was marked, but luckily we held off on getting the airline tickets purchased.

This year is shaping up much better. I've been getting in a bit more trigger time my 338 Edge. My buddy say's the longest shots will not exceed 500-600 yards in which I feel 100% confident in.

Magnus from the forum here is my hunting partner on this one. He's no stranger to killing some nice critters both in Alaska and Montana .
974yard over 33" Mule Deer

He'll be shooting his 300 Win Mag Custom also built by Joe Starnes of LongShot Precisions. He'll be using the 180gr Berger VLD and I'll be shooting the 300gr SMK.

I'll keep you guy's posted with plenty of pictures

Re: Heading north to Alaska!!

I will be heading into the bush near Delta Junction Alaska for Griz and black bear in 4 days. My wife drew an impossible (nearly) walk in (trophy unit) dall sheep tag for the August sheep season. SO we are going to spend a few days getting the lay of the land.

Hot tip from friends. Heavy bear population over the years. Many destroyed camps. Some have taken 43" sheep out of this area.

Still 4'-6' of snow in the shaded areas!

Thank you Mike

Maybe things will turn around this summer and you can come up for Caribou and moose this fall. Good for Moose, fair for caribou!

Gamedog , Magnus, Best of luck to you both. I hope this is a great trip for you guys. Having spent some time in the field with you both I have to say the Bears better high tail it.


Be safe, have a great time , and report in when you can
