2008 In Review

An unusually warm fall coupled with a sporadic rut made for a challenge this hunting season.  As the video clips will attest to; although nobody got the biggest deer or moose they saw, everyone enjoyed their hunt. 

This years moose hunter saw 22 moose before completing his hunt.  While the moose he did shoot was the smallest he saw, his sportsmanship has to be commended.  Twice he had opportunities at much larger animals but they were not guaranteed kills with a single hit, so he passed.  The one he did take dropped where it stood with one well placed shot.  

A number of 150 to 190 deer were seen by the four whitetail hunters we took this year. Whitetails don't get that big by making mistakes.  For a buck to get up in the 190 range he has to be both smart and lucky.  2008 was no exception.

We only took one trophy whitetail hunter (14 day hunt) this year. Our other guests booked shorter hunts and really didn't have the time to wait for the real big boys to get stupid.  For the first time in years the rut was still going when the season ended and continued well into December. 

2008 was enjoyed by all and they talked about when they were coming back too wait out the deer they had left behind.
