I'm surprised that loud music doesn't scare them away.

We like to sell the inedible ones to non-residents. Congrats on getting a small bull, Jeff. The last three years I have shot the three smallest bulls I have ever shot. Last years was too small. It lacked volume. Small bull hunting is getting better every year now. smile

Whitetail hunters here haven't figured that out yet.
Probably because they didn't rely on deer as their food.

I enjoyed the video. Good for you. I did a solo hunt north of Aniak 12 years ago and got a nice bull. Maybe one of those inedible ones but the backstraps were tasty and the rest was eaten by the elders in Stony River.

Thanks for the great coments guys. I shoot a Remington 7400 30-06 at least 180 g. I did buy a Ruger 7mm mag recnetly and tipped over a few with that, does a lot more damage ,but that can be a good thing.

The late September bulls smell bad, and have no fat, and tough as an old boot. Before the 15th of September or so they are fat and a good piece of meat. After that, like eating a big mink that you nicked the gland on.

I have not ate a bull in a few years. All my meat has Utters lately.

That Aniak /Stony River area is pretty country. Nice place to hunt for sure.

Cool video.

I haven't seen a spike/fork when moose hunting for years.

Use to be that way here when calf survival was 10% or less. That, and seeing a moose was an event. frown
