Back from Alaska!
« on: September 15, 2017, 03:55:06 PM »
Made it home in one piece this week after a great trip with a resident buddy, had good flying weather then a little rain during our hunt, saw lots of moose and shot a bull of a lifetime last Wednesday, put over 350 pounds of protein in the freezer.

WP it was a DIY hunt I have a good friend who lives up there and has hunted the area 30 years, I'm lucky to be able to go with him and enjoy the area.
