No moose

  Went to Fairbanks with high hopes of harvesting a moose north of Fairbanks with the cow permit I drew, but we did not see a moose.  Matt and I hunted along one of the rivers and didn’t see any four wheeler or people tracks, so seemed like a relatively unhunted area, but maybe that’s because there are no moose there, either.  We did see some sign, though.  Saturday there were lots and lots and lots of hunters, as it was the last weekend of bull season. A TON of berries. Blueberries, high and low bush cranberries everywhere.  I ate blueberries along the way, and they are alot sweeter than the blueberries and blue huckleberries down here.  Saw several spruce grouse, too.  Wish I’d had a shotgun or .22 with us.  The birch were in full gold fall colors, and mild temperatures.  Lots of fun and good to see some of our long-time UAF friends in Fairbanks. – Mark Stopha Alaska Wild Salmon Company 4455 N.
