Thank you. What are y'all going after?

whitetail deer, maybe some ducks. gota get my air boat running so we can get after it. it's been a rough year here, so I think a little time in field is going to be awesome for him. one of these days I'm going to come to your neck of the woods, I've always dreamed about Alaska.

Its a great thing to take your son hunting. Both of my boys have been lucky enough to draw and kill a moose here in WY. No longer. our moose populations are perhaps 20% of what they were. Lots of good eating there. Congrats

Thank you. The way it happened was he was in a field swinging his head back at my calls and my son said kill that one. It's a memory that I will have forever.

That's a great thing for your boys! To bad you cant hunt them there anymore. What drove the populatuon decline?

We had a discussion about that here a while back. My opinion is wolves. There is another opinion expressed that it is excessive heat. That one has some studies to back it up. So probably a combination of the 2 if the truth be known. Our moose populations are way low compared to the early 90's.

That's not good. But heat? Must be sustained high temps then. I live in north pole alaska and it got 98 degrees for almost a week here and we had sustained 80 degree temps. I don't think the animals suffered although we did since non of our houses have AC.

Hi Luke. Just saw your message. I am in Dillingham, and have been since 2002. I took an elementary teaching gig here, taught here five years, and then got a job with Togiak National Wildlife Refuge as their education and outreach specialist. Recently I just got a promotion and now I'm the Visitor Services Manager. Prior to DLG I spent 6 years teaching for Lake and Pen in Nondalton.

Hi TT
I am glad you found some useful info in my posts. Hard cast WFN with GC will do the job fine. I trust Veral Smith (owner of LBT company) - I believe that he can provide you with some finest HC bullets. Many companies are coping his design. I can help you from here in developing max loads (40.000psi) just let me know which powder you are using (I use Quick Load software which turns to be very reliable).
