The hubby and I headed up to our family’s cabin on the Denali Highway looking for a moose and/ or caribou to add to the freezer for the coming winter months. I’ve been driving the long 5 hour drive to the cabin since I was very young. I love this area more than any other part of Alaska; I always have and always will. A slow hike in my Hunting Boots always brings me to a peaceful calm state, I love it out here.
We were a little early for the caribou, and we saw a few cow moose (not legal for hunting). We saw one bull moose, but lost him in the dense woods. Good news is the season isn’t over yet. The hubby is thinking about going back up over the weekend to see what he can find. So we still have a few options for filling the freezer. One thing is for sure, next time we will get a stand alone laser rangefinder and map out distances so we don’t ever have to again.
We still had a great time up there. I love it so much. The weather was beautiful (for the most part), and I got a lot of great pics. Enjoy!
Like I said, I love this area. I can’t wait to get back up next summer. Subscribe below to keep seeing pics of our Great State!
