The 3rd Annual Moose Hunt

Lee and Shawn

  

Driving North to Fairbanks and beyond chasing the caribou herds:

  

Caribou herd crossing the road … the object is to split the herd down the middle with half on each side of the road.  The hunter hops out of the vehicle and hides along side the road waiting for the rest of the caribou to cross and continue on with the herd.  The caribou have to cross in the exact same spot as the other caribou (identical migration patterns year after year), so the hunter then has the opportunity to shoot one when they cross the road.  Interesting, eh?

    Driving to chase down the caribou herds??? Come on what would our native ancesters say about this? They would say ” The white man is clever, yet strange” I suppose eating snacks and sitting is better than trying to chase them down by foot. That moose was freaking massive. And I bet the caribou tastes sooooo delicious. You should make moose loaf. It is meat loaf with ground moose. It is really good. Greetings from Russia.
