Recommended Posts

My daughter drew in 2009 and I drew in 2010.  No luck since then.  My wife has been trying for 14 years.

Yep, Moose can kill also Brother's neighbor was killed in AK outside of Soldotna on his way to Homer in an S10 Typ pickup. 1970s Many have Raised suspensions and reinforced Bumpers, Past years they have installed Super bright LED floodlights that light the road like it is daylight.  He also has them on his Ram Pickup Camper rig even tho he drives around 50 The fastest :eek:   The photo is how far the 18 wheelers have gone. when they hit a Moose it is vaporized. 

 

Also, there is a List for Moose, unlike Main you put your name on it when a Moose is Hit they call you to pick it up if you say you can't you go to the bottom of the list If you say yes you pick it up and go to the bottom of the list again  On the Kenia Peninsula the list might have less than 100 names on it. and you may be called more than once he did it once along with 3 other guys it is no easy Task when called at 2 in the morning to cut up some 1000 pounds or more. 

Now days Not many put their names on the list The older guys can't handle all that meat the new arrivals don't know how to handle it.

I'm on the list.  Knowing my luck I'll pull a tag this year, and because of an impending job change, hunting will be challenging this year for me.

You guys probably know, but make sure you check the alternate list also.  Those are the people that they call if a permit is declined by a permit winner.  So, you still have a chance if you are on that list depending upon what number alternate you are. That's how we got our first permit. Daughter was #4 on the alternate list. There were a lot of permits declined that year and we had our pick of 4 or 5 bull zone tags.
