Location: Alaska.....
In 14 days I head back home to try and link up with what Alaska F&G deems to be a proper moose.... They don't make it easy in my area, as the only legal I can take is a spike fork, or a bull 50" or plus, with at least 4 brow tines on one side....

Those don't grow on tree's and I'm afraid that the genetics that grow those big racks are systematically being eliminated....
I did see one bull....Barry... he is in two of my video's.. I am sure he is legal, even though he had dropped his rack by the time I met him last winter...
I just have to try and find that boy this september.
But.... if nuthin else I am going to be home for a week..... That in itself is worth it.... I'll be sure to video the hunt.. or (the sit,) if that's what it turns out to be... :roll:

My old faithful Savage 99 is down, and parts may not get here in time, (main spring).... so I may use my wannabe sharps 1874.....
And I'll take something that holds more rounds, if a bear comes in..... (it would be nice to have a nice ol bear rug too!!

Here are the vids with that bull in them... (they are short vid's)..

I'll keep you updated!

ciao y'all

Yep, a coworker in Anchorage, gave me her moose heart stew, cause her family wouldn’t eat it. Their loss, my gain! Yumm!

Fried moose heart and eggs are good. Maybe sometime I'll tell the story of what saved me from having to try Beaver tail for dinner, up off a slough off the Yukon River.

Really like beaver although have never done the tail. Some of the best meat going BUT not as good as moose.

Friend had some moose pepperoni and that was really good. Anyone who dont like that has not really tried it. Some will just puke at the thought.

Back some yrs ago there was a trapper that would mix beaver w/ that 80/20 hamburg for the local store. Mix about 50/50 or so. People would ask how he made his burgers so good. He would tell em a while after they ate em.

Grind some beaver backstraps and loins and see how they go. Backstraps are great cut about 1/2" thick and fried on a HOT skillet for 3-4 min and get em out and enjoy. Too much cooking makes em like shoe soles.
Should be pink in the middle when you eat.

I'm a little late coming into this but I like to do a moose heart in the pressure cooker for 20-30 minutes then stuff it with a low bush cranberry stuffing. Into the oven until the stuffing is cooked and enjoy.

All steaks should be pink in the middle if you want taste, cook well done if you like to chew!
