Alaska Bucket List Hunt #3
« on: June 28, 2022, 07:22:50 PM »
As many know, I have done write ups for hunt #1 (2018 Mountain Goat) and hunt #2 (2021 Spring Brown Bear).  As mentioned previously, this year will be hunt #3 Alaska Yukon Moose (and hopefully another Brown Bear), and next year will be #4 and my ultimate a Dall Sheep.

At any rate, I fly out in 65 days and am starting to get really excited for the trip.  Plan is to fly to anchorage on 9/1, fly into the bush on 9/2 and start hunting 9/3.  Moose season begins on 9/5 and I plan to hunt through the end of the season 9/15.  May do a little fishing too.

Awesome, where are you going?  I fly out for Sheep August 7th, but not until 2023.  Assume this is with your brother like the Kodiak Goat?  You draw any other good tags this year?

Very good, I canít wait to hear about it, I want to get to the Brooks range one day myself.  You going to have a Caribou tag in your pocket as well?  Assume Grizzly isnít open at that point in the year?

Canít wait for the write up  :tup:

Keep an eye on flights, lots of ruined trips lately. Maybe hit anchorage a day or two early to not miss bush flight.

caribou and griz are both in play but unless we have sheep tags filled we are laying off the other stuff. I can go shoot a caribou any year but this will likely be my one and only crack at a sheep.

Good luck! Looking forward to hearing about it. I don't know how you guys can function with the anticipation of these big cool hunts. I am having a hard time with Washington bear season opening in a month.

Shane,

The moose hunts sounds awesome.   I have a small bull moose 10 years on a 10 day float hunt in the Brooks Range.  The wildest excursion I ever had.   Did the sheep hunt in 07 in the Alaska Range bringing home a beautiful ram.    Your sheep hunt will be a world class experience.

Me and 5 guys are doing a boat based hunt for Sitka deer on The south South end of Kodiak this year.
Dates are the first week of Nov, so hopefully the rut will be in action.

Looking forward to your moose hunt story.
