Bull Moose Pack Out

Butchering and Packing out Moose in Alaska

After ten days on an epic self-guided hunting adventure in Alaska, tackling the challenging Alaskan wilderness, the team was able to harvest a massive bull moose. Today, the real work begins as they have the difficult task of packing it out and carrying the meat back to camp.

There are strict rules...
...Nothing is left to waste.

They take their time to carefully plan the most advantageous route to the bull, ensuring a load rifle is ready as there is a grizzly bear in the area. Watch the full film as Steve starts the butchery process. There are strict rules regarding how meat should be harvested. All meat should be stripped from the bones and extracted. Nothing is left to waste.

The journey back to camp is long and hard. Back at camp Ian drops the first load of meat and heads straight back up to Steve for the next one. By the time Ian returns, Steve has made great progress. The bull is now completely stripped, the meat has been split into manageable loads, and Steve is busy with the final job of cleaning off the skull.

Bush pilot Cole is set to collect the meat in the evening so they must make sure that all the meat is ready and waiting. Cole is on a very tight schedule and won’t have time to hang around.

It has been a tough day, but they have enjoyed every moment of it. With their packs strapped on, they make their way down the terrain one last time. Cole arrives right on time to collect the meat. the team will be taking the antlers home; and the meat is donated to a local family.
