Well, ladies and gentlemen it has been a fantastic year full of adventure and personal bests. Best of all, my two oldest daughters got to witness firsthand the excitement we all live for. The Spring bear season brought some great memories and exciting moments. I hooked my personal best halibut weighing 95 pounds and connected on some of the most difficult shots of my life to include a 300 yard shot with my 300 Win Mag on a black bear feeding on a steep 60 degree hillside while I was drifting in a boat down the Yukon river. The bear wasn't large, but I was excited about making the shot and I was most excited that my 13 year old daughter was there to experience it with me. The Fall season started in early September with a four day Caribou hunt South of the Denali Highway in Alaska's unit 13. We put our eyes on at least a hundred caribou throughout the weekend and I was lucky enough to put my reticle on my personal best bull at 280 yards. A week later I welcomed some family members to Alaska for this year's moose hunt. On the second day of our the hunt I called a bull in to 165 yards and hit him with an instant lights out shot with a 300 grain Berger from my 338 Edge. We saw several bulls throughout the 10 day hunt, but we only closed the deal with mine. Last weekend I was able to get access to one of Alaska's most prized game animals to harvest a Bison with my middle daughter. It was a fantastic trip and it gave me a glimpse of the old west with bison stampeding through the dusty countryside. I took this gigantic bull with my 338 LM firing 250 grain Berger Elite Hunters. This weekend brought about another opportunity in which I was to travel South to sneak into shooting range of this great bull elk. The 338 LM got a workout this October and helped me punch a couple tags. Needless to say, my meat pole is full. I'm grateful for the opportunity to harvest these great animals and I'm more grateful that I can feed my hungry people for the coming year with the best table fare our world offers.
