This was my first and only moose. He was a real nice 48". This was my first fly-in. I have never been much of a moose hunter. I was always to busy with sheep, goat and caribou.
Gary with his 60" moose we took on the Fog Lake Hunt. We harvested 2 moose and 3 caribou.
Ron with his 60" moose that he took in the Fog Lakes area. I went on three hunts in that area and we killed 6 moose. Ron's moose was about 5 miles from camp. Not a fun pack, but when you are young and dumb, well!!
Earl with his 56" moose taken in the Fog Lakes area. Earl had a chance at a 60"+ moose that got away.
Great Fog Lakes Hunt
A happy group of guys with Ron's and Earl's moose. (R to L) Mike Herbert, Earl Boucher, Ron Watts and myself after a fun and successful hunt in the mid 70's.
Alaska Peninsula Moose Hunt
I did mainly caribou hunts on the Alaska Peninsula but this time I tried a combo hunt that didn't work well. (R to L) Doug Simmons, Chuck Berry, Charles James and myself with two legal moose. No big guys in site.
My First Guided Moose For AAA
Bryan Kettel and me with his 62 1/2" moose taken at Big Bend Lake in 1984. This was AAA Alaskan Outfitters first moose hunter. In 1983 I guided one moose hunter for Rich Guthrie and two forTracy Verm. Rich's client was a bow hunter who took a 53" and two gun hunters who took a 65" and 60".
Greg took the beautiful 64" bull in 1987 above the cabin at Bryson Bar. This was in our Wrangell Mountains area.
Fred, 76 years old with his 57 1/2" beauty. This moose had the best brow of any we have ever taken. This was our second and the last moose that year. He was guided by Dan Schwarzer and myself. Two years later Dan became a partner in AAA Alaskan Outfitters.
Tom Losk And Myself
Tom, a packer and me with a moose he has just packed to a spot that I landed for pick-up. Tom hunted with us two times for moose/caribou and wanted to come back and pack for us. That was strange but his goal was to get his guides license which he did.
Chris and me with his 68" moose taken behind the camp at Otter Lake in 1999. This was the first day of his hunt.
Tom and me with his 60" moose taken behind camp at Otter Lake. This was the first day of his hunt.
My Grandson Jared With His 1st Moose
Jared and the family with his 42" moose. This moose was taken in unit 20 under any bull. (L to R) Jared, cousin Jens, uncle Thor, myself, father Sagen, sister Rachel and brother Nathan. Family fun.
My Granddaughter Rachel
Rachel with her 49" moose taken in unit 20 under any bull. This was her first moose. Shot it at 250 yards with my 300 Winchester magnum. That was the first time she had shot a rifle that big.
My Grandson Nathan
Nathan with his 46" moose taken in unit 20 under any bull. This was Nathan's first moose. (L to R) Nathan, his dad Sagen, cousin Jens and myself. Another family hunt.
Here I am with a set of locked antlers that I spotted from the air close to our Otter Lake base camp. The larger one was 69" and the small one 56". They were packed to camp by packer Scott Herbert.
Family Moose Hunt
One of our successful family moose and caribou hunts in unit 20. (L to R) Jens, Thor, Nathan, Sagen and myself with two moose and a caribou.
We always set up a good meat hanging area to keep it dry and keep the flies away.
