Wow BP, we were in totally different looking country. We were way up north, just off the east coast of the peninsula and it was heavily timbered and moderately steep.


1. Our hunting zone in yellow, and our fly out point in red.


2. Ridge around our camp lake, typical of the ridges that cut up the country all around.


3 - 6. Typical glassing views.


7. Me on a ridge top.


8. The crew, L-R. Loridr, George, Dave with rack from only moose we killed, Larry.

wow!!! yes big difference!!!! we met some guys(young) from NY that hunted up there and said it was tuff going! one thing I did learn on my first trip and it will be different on my next is; its my hunt and I paid a lot of money for it! nothing against the outfitter or the guides, they bust their butts to make sure you go home with a moose and they are great people, but I don't care about success rates and things of the such. shooting a moose with my flintlock is the number one priority for me and they understand that now. if I come home without a moose because of the weapon I choose to carry I am good with that! all I want is the chance. I passed a 190 yard shot on the second morning because of the lack of daylight and I was good with that and I feel at that point the guide had done his job, period. if I would have had a center fire it would have been a done deal, not his fault. we have an understanding now and they are crystal clear on what I want. we will also get a bear license next time! I can't wait to get back up there!!

That was another issue for us, we were totally unprepared for the length of the shooting. We were pretty much limited to shooting from the ridge tops because the tuckamore and timber was so thick it was impossible to make a stalk down into the bottoms if a bull were spotted. The bulls were not responding to calling at all, the closest openings in the bottoms were about 275 yards, and most were more like 400 - 500. We had horrible weather too, loosing a full day and a half due to being fogged in at the fly out point. Once we got in, we had one good day of weather, the remainder of the time it was blowing a gale.

Our takeaway was that we chose the wrong area for our limited physical ability. We wanted to be remote and we were too remote. While it was beautiful country and we enjoyed it immensely, we would have been better off in country where the use of machines to get around would be possible, or at the least, in lower, more open country we could hike well in.

I was prepared for 200 yards with the flintlock, but it just wasn't quite light enough for open sights yet. this time I will have the flintlock for 200 and under and the old Winchester in 40-70 Ballard for out to at least 500. so I should have that part of it covered! wind and fog are bad news up there!

When you are up to your butt in alligators, it is hard to remember your intent was to drain the swamp. Stay focused!
