My Alaska cousin, Eider Duck, went moose hunting. He sent us these photos. Eider and his humans drove north on the Dalton Highway.
These are his human hunters.
They camped in tents in northern Alaska for two weeks in September.
Hunting in northern Alaska requires a variety of vehicles.
This is a sample of the area they visited.
Some of their traveling was near the famous Alaska pipeline. The pipeline here doesn’t look very far from the ground, but it is.
Eider told me the pipe must me far enough off the ground for herds of caribou and moose to easily pass under the pipeline. Eider and his humans are heading down this road.
Eider said he had fun on the hunting trip, but the humans did not see even one moose. The moose also know when it is hunting season. Eider is back home now and ready to go to the grocery store with his humans. The rule of his human hunters: If you shoot it you must eat it. They did not shoot any moose, so there is nothing to eat. A trip to the grocery store will fill the refrigerator this season.
Thanks for the photos Eider. And thanks for telling me about your camping and hunting in northern Alaska last September.
