So I bumped into a friend of mine yesterday,he told me that his son is going up to Alaska this fall to work as a moose packer, or Packer in general, but he focused on moose. Im wondering, with all the high paying oil field and fishery jobs, what can he expect to earn in a season or daily? This got me to thinking about my upcoming moose hunt (it never stops! smoke, grinding gear noise…) I may not kill a Boone and Crocket bull, but I will kill a bull and there’s better than 50% chance I’ll be by myself. ( I may be hunting closer to the roads than I anticipate) I’m 61, and nowhere near the condition that my buddies, 22 year-old son is in. My pack loads will be half his size, and take me twice as long to get out! I plan on putting a bed mounted winch in the Ford! On another note, I went and picked up some new arrows, some Easton FMJ’s and some G5 tips. Holy crap! I hope I don’t lose one.
