Hey guys-n-gals!

I haven't been around EF much, with some responsibilities elsewhere and a DIY road trip AK hunt, but I have been having fun catching up on EF. Looks like it has been a successful year for a bunch of the EF faithful!

Great job everyone!

It went pretty well.

Three of use went "on the cheap," and we all made it back.

Awesome pick, I love your expression. Can't get any better for an "on-the-cheap" DIY Moose hunt.

Was this a first time hunt? Did you just kind of wing it or have some "inside" help?

Yep,

It was my first time in AK. First time for all of us in that area. Just some online research, and into the backcountry we went. Pretty lucky I guess. Our third hunter, Austin, filled his tag on a small bull with two days left in the season. 3 for 3 isn't too bad.

Congrats to you both! Is that your first moose? How the heck did you get all that home?

Yeah, first moose. Jared and I got tired of unsuccessfully putting in for moose in MT. We bought our tags OTC at Walmart in Fairbanks. Felt kind of weird.

We got the meat back in an enclosed trailer with the ATVs. We used citric acid and gamebags, and it made it through the trip perfectly. Not an ounce wasted.

BB your buddy came and showed me all the pic's of your trip. That sure was beautiful country and I'm not sure, but I believe I had drool on desk-top. Post up a couple pictures of those recovered Accubonds for us to see. I figured they would work just like they always do!

Guys, I have still been posting on here regularly over the last few months (and returning lots of PMs), I wouldn't leave you guys! This thread was from September right after I got back from AK.

I know I have been spending more time somewhere else, but I still check EF just about daily.

I do really appreciate all the kind words about the moose. What an adventure it was!

Ha BB these guys just can't enough of you. Your kind of a big deal around here. I think this thread is gonna be like the 1000 yard hunting one. It's gonna sneak back up when you think you've seen the last post. Hahahah
