Default Fairbanks Moose hunt....Here we come.

Sitting at airport waiting on flight to Seattle, meet up with my buddies from Montana then on to Fairbanks. 14 days in Alaska and a 10 day Moose hunt.

So ready to get away and enjoy some peace and quiet. Not sure how relaxing it will be but I know I won't be answering calls, texts or emails.

Temperature looks to be good for the hunt.

I lived in just south of Fairbanks For a little while. There are moose in Fairbanks, but I would recommend getting out away from the city. You値l have better luck!

Good luck! Yes, I知 jealous.

Best I have been told we are going to be in 20B. This is a DIY, my first yr but my buddies 6 or 7th yr. They have had good success in the past.

Here's to hoping it's another successful trip.

My brother has been in Delta Junction for around 15 years now. I really enjoyed traveling through that area and hunting.

Good time to hunt moose. My brother just sent me that his guides are over. The wounded warriors he guides each year on protected land just took 4 bulls in less than 2 days. Of course it is a little different and easier than most land. But they had a great harvest and he said bulls are active. Check this Facebook page to see a few of the kills.

This year is cooler than last when I was up there for moose season. They should be much more active than they were for me. Hopefully this thread can help hold me over til the ‘21 season when I’m back for round 2.

This might be my last check in before we head out. Got to Fairbanks and have been getting all our gear ready to go. Today we will load everything up and head out. Grocery shopping is on our list this morning and then off to the woods we go.

We had a slight setback that put us a day behind. Problems with one of the Argos machines. Part was overnighted and is supposed to arrive around 10am.

Weather is looking promising. Lows 40's in morning to mid to upper 50's for highs.

I am cheating on this hunt and am using my Weatherby 300. Next year if i come back, I have already told my buddies i'm bringing the bow.

I will post pictures of the hunting rigs before we load them on the trailer and head out.
