    I share your bias. I've lived here over 40 years now and have still not seen it all. I am in awe of the beauty here. I just got back from driving down to the Kenai peninsula from Anchorage to pick up a new canoe and told my wife, that if we ever decide to move out-of-state, we had better not make this same drive or we'd never want to leave! We saw several Dall sheep and plenty of moose.

    I have to tell you all and I'm sure AK would agree, once you hunt these great beasts you're hooked. Not only hooked on the hunt but the table fare is second only to stone sheep.

    I do agree! Cow calling a big bull, early in the morning and hearing him grunting and breaking brush on his way, my adrenaline just soars! I've never hunted elk but I imagine bugling in a big bull is similar in excitement. Moose is great table fare! I haven't eaten a stone sheep but Dall's are good.

    Im my experience.....elk, moose and turkey hunting seems to attract the same mentality of people.......they all tend to have that crazy look in their eyes also! The last time I saw that look was last year when a gentlemen (50 yrs old) shot his first elk during muzzleloader season. He looked down at the animal and muttered " holy sh-t is she big" I said "oh yeah, this pack out is gonna sting a little" We broke her down and started back to camp 2.78 miles away and up 1300 feet. Before we started I told him " this is gonna hurt, keep a slow steady pace, we will get you back to camp, get your boots off, feed, water/hydrate then we will come back in to get the rest of her before dark" He gave me a look like NFW, you are crazy and we started out.
    After executing the plan, making it back to camp and hanging the rear quarters I started to lace my boots back up and said "ok lets get going" He looked up from the ground and said "I cant believe Im gonna say this, but ok, lets go, I feel great now"

    He was hooked on western hunting, had a smile and had the "look of craziness now in his eyes"

    Man I love this place!!!

    Hey guys I am starting to consider doing a moose hunt. I would love to do an Alaskan/Yukon hunt, but those seem over whelming and expensive for a boy from GA. Everyone on here knows my style of hunting is archery backcountry DIY, but I am contemplating a New Foundland guided hunt. I would still like to be in the backcountry and not in a lodge if possible. Does anyone have any experience in NF with a bow? I would love to hear personal experiences about any specific outfitters, good or bad. PM me if you prefer to not air it out publicly. Also I am wanting to keep this hunt in the $5,000 range.

Northern BC would be my choice, best quality for dollars spent. Yukon for Alaskan moose, but very pricey, 17-20,000K. Alaska is great to hunt, but guided hunts are very pricey too, self-guided is fun, but much lower success rate. Ontario's moose are so-so imo. Fishing is usually good anywhere you moose hunt. I don't think it pays to purchase points now because you are so far back, unless you're willing to wait and want to spend the point bucks.
    I've been complaining about CO not accepting credit cards for Moose, sheep, goat..., supposedly this year they will, and supposedly they won't require fronting the tag fee this year! so talk about a WIN-LOSS!? anytime no money to front is required, there go the odds.
