Hunting Moose in Alaska
Another day in the magnificent Alaskan wilderness begins the snow has covered the nearby mountains. However, the sun is shining and moose hunting season in Alaska has officially opened.
The previous day they did spot three bull moose, so they know that there are moose nearby. Today is a brand new day and with the weather on their side the team head out for another busy day in the wilds of Alaska.
Only the essential moose hunting gear has been carefully packed in the backpacks. Each piece of moose hunting gear has been carefully considered before they continue their trip up the valley.
The team are hunting new ground today. The route also allows them to take advantage of the relatively flat terrain before heading up the plateau. They hope to find an elevated vantage point that will give them a comprehensive view.As usual, patience is the essential ingredient...
As usual, patience is the essential ingredient when scanning the tundra. Something will eventually show itself. Having reached the edge of their packing radius, Ian and Steve circle their way back to camp. They take a slightly different route that offers an alternative view of the valley. It is entirely possible that animals have crossed the valley during the day and they want to make sure all bases have been covered.
As the sun goes down Ian has another opportunity at ptarmigan hunting. He readies the Air Arms S510 TDR and begins scouring the area. Steve is on back up in case a grizzly appears, when in the remote wilderness of Alaska you have to be prepared for anything. Unfortunately, Ian is unsuccessful in harvesting any of these birds.
