    BC,Pat, nice looking moose hope my hunt is as sucessful as yours, we are heading to Fort Nelson, BC late September. Its kind of a long drive from Michigan, about 2600 miles, did I mention, I'm not looking foreward to that part of the trip. My buddy won the hunt at a SCI auction, the outfitter said you can bring a friend for the same price, called me and I blurted out hell yea I'm in, without thinking about the traveling part. Good thing I'm retired, bad thing is I'm leaving on my wifes 60th birthday, and will be gone on my 60th birthday 3 days later.

    Hi Tay,
    You'll be hunting in a good area. I just read the stratified random block (SRB) aerial survey was conducted in Wildlife Management Unit (WMU) 7-32, southwest of Fort St. John, British Columbia. (google)
    Moose numbers look healthy, which is surprising with the wolf population being as high as it is. I wish you the best of luck, and look forward to your post hunt report.
    Good hunting
    Pat

    . That should be very doable, wolves are tough customers tricky. Ive taken a couple normal at distance 250++ they will not let you get close to them. If a wolf lifts his head to check the wind, you haven't got long before hes heading to the next time zone, get on him ! Again good luck.

    Hi Rick, yes it is which is why I hunt there. In close to 30 years of hunting this area I never get tired of the view.
    Regards
