Dude that is awesome!  I seriously almost commented that you have such good Karma with all the help with moose you have been providing that you are due in 2017!.  I must have had a vision.  GOOD WORK!

            Benhuntin
      If I recall you were one of the many guys on this site who came forward with some tips that helped my wife with her Douglas any moose early tag in 2015. All I have to say is finally Karma has come to one of the many guys and gals who deserve it the most. Congrats to you on the draw pal! I don't know where or when your hunt is, but try and surround yourself with friends and family and shoot an absolute beast.

       Good Luck!      Joe

Have a awesome hunt in Alaska.   Went on a 10 day 110 mile float hunt in the Brooks back in 2014.

Just got flown back to Anchorage. Came out 3 days early, weather was getting pretty bad. (Or I am just not that tough). All in all it was a fun hunting trip.

Alaska was fun. Our group had 2 tags and we both tagged out. Nothing big but we did fill our tags. I saw 2 Moose in 7 days. I prefer Washington Moose hunting, I get to see 10+ Moose a day and be picky at what to shoot( but I will probably be to old before I ever draw the tag myself). Pics did not turn out very well do to weather.

Cool looking bull.  Having hunted Alaska once in the past, I can honesty say there isn't a moose behind every tree.

Nice bull. If anyone here could fill that tag it would be you. You have probably unknowingly been revered to by me to many moose hunters over the years.  :chuckle:.
But everyone of them said you were very helpful.
Once again congrats
