Aleutian Storm in Moose Season


Aleutian Storm in Moose Season

Several nice bulls in the 60 to 70 inch class have been seen during our preseason scouting.  As always, thick brush and foul weather seem to control the fall moose hunts in Alaska.  As we deploy our second hunt, an Aleutian Storm of biblical proportions visits us here on the remote Alaska Peninsula.  National Weather Service predicts 65 to 80 knot winds and as much as 8 inches of rain in our area.  Then the strorm makes its way toward Southcenteral Alaska, where forecasters predict winds to100 mph, possible destruction and catastropic rains.

If we were anywhere but Alaska, they would give this storm a name.  Question is, should we pull the camps back to the lodge, or let them ride out the storm.  Anticipating the arrival of the storm, Gary "Butch" King, Master Guide at Wildman avoided putting the two camps in the lower country "Swamp Moose" and elected to hunt higher ground where forecast flooding would not put the hunters and guides in jepardy.  "We have the best tents and gear money will buy and the camps are located well."  Pulling the camps back to the lodge would cause lost hunting days in the short season, so Butch contacted both camps by SatPhone and told them to "Batten Down the Hatches and keep hunting." A storm like this one, arriving in the early days of the second hunt, could definately have an effect on this year's success on trophy bulls.
