Overall Impression: Experience of a Lifetime

My hunt was a 14 day Moose/Mountain Caribou Combo while carrying Mountain Goat and Wolf tags in October, 2005. The hunt took place in breathtaking country and was a 1/1 hunt. I took a beautiful Mountain Caribou that I think is going to make B&C and my guide called in 4 wolves over a moose carcass from a previous hunter and I harvested a huge, almost solid white wolf that we estimated to weigh between 175 and 200 lbs (it out-weighed me!) and measured 7'1" from nose to tail. During the course of the hunt, my guide and I saw 8 grizzlies and numerous Mountain Goats. I did not harvest a Mountain Goat by choice because I wanted to concentrate on Moose after the Caribou. I did have an opportunity at a tremendous Bull Moose that we estimated at 62"+ with huge palms, but I somehow blew a 300 yard shot that I should have made. Dempsey insisted that I could stay as long as I wanted and I did stay 1 extra day. I did not harvest my moose but did have another opportunity to take another wolf if I would have had the tag on that extra day. All the guides that I had contact with had at least 8 years experience with Dempsey and the horses and equipment were all great. I hope to go back for Stone Sheep and my Moose in the future with Dempsey.
