    Great story and pics! Really enjoyed following along! The pic with the kids holding the antlers on the couch is really cool!

    I have been looking all over for a story like this about Moose Valley. We are headed up to hunt with Dean this October and I have been debating on trying bow or gun. From talking to him it sounds like they don't have that much success with bow but after hearing your story I am set on trying with bow. Great pics and thanks for sharing your story!

    Good luck! Dean and company will show you a good time and a great hunt. Are you hunting island pond or bear pond? The best advise I can give about bowhunting anything is if you want to succeed bowhunting don't bring a rifle. Have a great trip! Take lots of pictures.
    I rebooked two spots for me and my dad in 2019 and got on the list for a woodland caribou tag as well. I can't wait to get back up there.

    Cool story, thanks for sharing with everyone. I have to say I am a bit jealous and hope to add something like this to my bucket list. Hope that 2019 brings you the same amount of adventure!
