Alaskan moose hunt, Two big bulls, One with 13 brow tines!

Unread postby Gilliland440 » Tue Oct 14, 2014 5:32 am

I just got my video finished up from my hunt this fall. I took my father out to western Alaska to see if we could get him his first moose at 72. He has received the conservationist award on the last few hunts but was saving karma points for this beauty! My buddy Owen and his father also joined us and Owen took his largest moose to date. It took 9 trips to get our gear and the 2 moose back to civilization.

Enjoy!

We had just over a ton bone in for the two. This also included the racks.
