Last GRAPHIC photo of Moose Kill

Well, this seemed to be the most difficult part of the process. It took his entire family plus a friend or two to gut this moose. The smell was horrible and it was still steaming, but that is what has to be done if you want fresh meat taken to the butcher and good for your family. I am not sure about this Alaskan lifestyle. I have much to learn. I have much to think about and reverence for our native brothers and sisters who fought this wilderness to survive. I have much to be thankful for, for my life is so simple compared to theirs. I have much to be excited about, for if the Lord asks us to stay here, these are the kinds of things I have to learn to do and experience. I have much to ponder...

I'm sure it is quite a different way of life than most are used to.

I was raised hunting and fishing and even though we are in the lower 48, we still look forward to the venison every year.

My dad has been able to get two moose, one from New Foundland and one from NH the last two years.

Great photos of an American tradition.
