Default Hunting Season

Who's stoked? Caribou season is opening this weekend. Moose buggy is getting scary close. Planning to take a trip to Eureka early saturday morning to test out the rig on the trail. Also see if I can't stir up some Bou as it opens Saturday morning.

If things don't work out this weekend, I'm taking the ranger to my new moose spot on the 17th to scout out the water levels one last time before my trip onthe 31st. Should be able to get a bou at that time if need be.

Sipping on hot coffee, bundled up in warm hunting gear at moose camp as daylight starts to melt off the tundra fog, looking for a glimpse of a moose rack sounds like a little slice of heaven right now...

Not going to have the flat bed on the rig finished in time, taking the ranger. Going to head up tonight and take off early in the morning for monument. Should be a good time with the wife and a bou would be a bonus!

Well Eureka sucked last weekend as usual and beat the snot out of my rig 70 miles later. So Saturday and Sunday we went further North to none of your business creek and found a corridor for bou. Shot the first decent one I saw after stopping for 45 seconds (literally) at our destination. 250 yard shot from the hill in the background. Single round through the chest. Clean humain kill. Wasnt super happy with my core lokt round. Blew into about 3 pieces and bounced around in his chest before existing through 3 different holes. 225 grain .338...

Anyway, after cleaning him up, two MONSTERS walked right on by.... But it was a good hunt and scoping our moose area went well. I felt very blessed to have my wife and boy along with our big group. 6x6 ran awesome. Had some good stucks but had a great time over all. My buddy has the sportsman 6x6 with the fat tracks on the back. Thing rocks! So much flotation with the tracks it's unreal.
