Man Hawkeye, did you hit the

Man Hawkeye, did you hit the lottery?  Bear hunting in Western Canada, hunting in Hawaii, and  moose hunting in Maine?  I would guess that that Remington .300 would work on all three of these...

You don't say... I did not

You don't say... I did not know that the .300 Remington Ultra Mag had enough power to even hunt pronghornlol . Yeah, I would say that it is more than capable of that task. That thing is not going to have any problems with anything on North America and if it was legal, I do not think that it would have any problem disbatching the world's biggest animals... if the right bullets are used.

My family has land just outside of Homer and yes, we have connections up there. I was not able to make it up there this year because of my internship... I missed it. I actually met a hunter down here that was from Homer. He had come down here to hunt elk in Colorado and pheasants in one of our states to the east. I want to say that he mentioned hunting moose up there this year but that he did not get one. If I was in his shoes I would not miss any chance to hunt up there. Its a small world for sure.

i also had a moose tag that

i also had a moose tag that got burned up there. i just didn't have the oppertunity to go. i purchased the tag early, and then my wife lost her job, and somebody took a bunch of my stuff, so in the end i just had to stay home.

unfortunately, i understand the populations of moose have been drastically down from what they were 10 years ago. i lived in soldotna for a bit and saw quite a few back in 2002-2004. then they started to drop off slowly. by 2009, i didn't really see but a few.

i think i'll go and hunt the se coast in the next few years for black bear. or brown bear, if i make some connections.
