Jay Link's Moose Story (Pictures Below)
I hunted the moose you see in the photograph in Russia, on the Kamchatka Peninsula with
Bob Hodson's Sable Expeditions out of Anchorage Alaska. I took the moose in Early December
2001 on a 14-day hunt. My brother and I flew from Petropavlosk via helicopter to the hunt
area, where we stayed in trappers' cabins. We would leave each morning via skis and ski
all day looking for tracks, or for moose. On average, we skied about 15 miles per day.
Game was very scarce due to the very heavy, early-snow conditions.
In two weeks of hunting I saw 13 moose, and my brother saw only two. The area we were
hunting is very remote and has limited access. Hence, moose have the opportunity to reach
maturity. The genetics are some of the best in the world.
My moose is a monster, I was extremely lucky to ski up on him. It was a difficult shot for
my .338 at 350 yards, because he was bedded behind a drainage with only one foot of his
back exposed. We could see his antlers sticking out over the drainage. One shot spined the
moose and he never got out of his bed. It took me and my two guides, Igor and Dimia, 40
minutes to ski to the downed animal.
This was one of the toughest hunts I have been on through my travels around the world. I
refer to the hunt as a 'tough man's contest,' rather then a hunt. It was a great
experience. My brother Troy will be returning next year. As to the score of the moose, it
should end up somewhere between 550 and 600 points SCI. It has huge mass and extremely
wide paddles, with 20 points on one side and 18 points on the other. This
moose weighed in at over 2300 pounds.!!!!
Here is ten year Jack Nelsen of Staples, MN. Jack
shot this 255.5 B&C Alaska-Yukon bull moose this past September 2004. Jacks
moose was officially scored number two in the world by Rob Naplin of Park Rapids, MN. The
bull had a 77 inch wide spread and was taken with one shot at 80 yards.
