    Well guys whats the scoop whos all back and what did any of you get???

    Personally just got home from up north and it was HOT and smoky from forest fires.
    We managed to get our 2 moose one 5x6 and a tiny 2 pt as we went to get 2 bulls and werent fussy LOL
    better eating anyways, did see a cranker I called in at the edge of a lake/swamp/cut block but came from a long way away and just couldnt get close enough before it got to dark and wasnt there the next day :(.

    saw about 20 deer not 4 pts and only 1 bear? weird as last year we saw a bear around every corner. dont know where they all went to???

    next I may go on an island elk hunt again and then to sask of course...

    Photos to follow......

    What do you mean you might go for island elk again!?? I only ask because I thought they were a once in a lifetime LEH win. I'm guessing there's other ways to get access to them..... guided hunt?

    Sounds like you had a successful trip! looking forward to pictures.

    Finally done with fishing for a spell, and can get around to thinking about hunting...

    Major Plans won't start to unfold until November. Actually drew a couple tags (UNREAL!!) this year, a muley and a group moose with my Brother (haven't been able to hunt together for almost 20 years!!) and a Buddy from The Rock. All in Kamloops area, immature moose also open for 1/2 our season (all of November). Have a good Buddy in Kamloops who's insisting on helping out with the slobber-noses, then taking me to tag a cat with the bow immediately after. Then a quick run towards Westbank to hook up with another for the late season muley (rut) bow hunt.

    To pass away the time until then, I'm chasing a pretty good 4 point blacktail, and his HUGE Non-Typical Buddy around with the pointy sticks...

    All in all should prove out to be a Fun & Interesting fall! :D

    Congrats on the moose Roy! Hoping we get "Lucky" too!

    Passed on 14 does with the bow last night. Feeding right in front of me ranging from 20 through 50 yards. The Biggie must still be nocturnal at this point, but that will change. Back at it this evening...

    Got back on the 25th with a variety pack, 1 mulie, 1 elk, 1 moose. It was a great trip lots of fun and no issuers with gear. Way too hot but they were starting to move pretty good, moose were just staring to get into it.

    Back from up North

    Headed out for our annual moose trip to the far reaches of BC in hopes of putting some meat in freezer and relaxing last weekend.

    It was a great time and although the hunting was tougher than last year, we still enjoyed ourselves and had some good laughs. The weather was a mix of hot, cold, snow, wind, sleet, rain and the best of all....a full moon..... Lots of people out this year, but they all like to drive roads and drive roads and drive roads, which is just fine.

    We had 4 different bulls show us their head gear this year, two just did not measure up, one would not stop long enough for us to get a good look at and one fit what we were looking for.

    We got this bull on the last afternoon of our trip, buddy called him in and I shot him a ~8 yards, then he lunged towards me and I shot him again at around 6 yards, he turned and ran 20 yards and that was it. We had to pack it out to the road, thank god for the younger guys in the crew who did it with no complaints and lots of geting old.

    as he lay


    The hunter



    Also saw a couple deer and this guy who did not have a care in the world that we were there.

    Great Bull Sitka! Fantastic "Close In" Work!!

    Congrats Wolf on another successful Rosie Hunt! Looking forward to the pictures...

    Christmas came early for Mad Max (as my Excalibur ExoMax is affectionately known). Knock on the door damn early, and a rather long rectangular box dropped into my hands...
