Alaska Moose for two at Wildman


Alaska Moose for two at Wildman

After a successful spring bear hunt this past May, Sergio Deschamps returned to Wildman Lake Lodge to hunt Alaska Moose with Master Guide Gary "Butch" King at Wildman Lake Lodge. This trip he was accompanied by his lovely wife Norma. They arrived on September 14, five days into the 21 day season.

After a nice lunch, the couple checked into their heated cabin, appointed in knotty pine and furnished with a cozy king size bed included full bathroom with shower. Wow, Moose hunting thought Norma.

After enjoying a bit of Char fishing, it was time to test fire the .338 Win. Magum provided by Wildman head guide Jesse and get licensed up for the hunt. The following morning, Butch flew Jesse out to set up a comfortable camp for himself and the couple from Monterrey, Mexico. When the two Wildman Super Cubs returned with the couple, Jesse had finished erecting two spacious 10X10 four season tents, complete with cots, chairs, lantern and sleeping bags. The guide's tent would douple as the kitchen and dining area for the hunt.

The following morning would take the trio to a nearby glassing hill from which they would make their first attempt at spotting a trophy bull moose. About mid afternoon, they spotted a likely trophy room candidate, but the bull was going the wrong way, obvious in search of a fall time playmate. That evening Jesse spent some quality time on his moose call before turning in for the night.

Up early, it was back to the glassing hill. But before they got 100 yards from their camp, Jesse spotted a big set of antlers looking right at them from about 800 yards. SOB! He thought, as the bull reeled and started hauling horns for greener pastures. Rather than just watching the big fella disappear, he said "Lets Go!" Selecting an interception angle to the bull's flight, he hoped to get close enough for a clear shot. Close to the point that everyone was out of steam, they came over the ridge of last hope and there was the bull, 200 yards, ears up and head down beating the heck out of a willow bush.

Three shots later from the borrowed .338 Win. Mag. The bull was down and excitement as high.
