For those of you who have hunted and brought back spring muskox with you how did you handle it? I plan on tanning the hide and doing a euro. I will be traveling from Yellowknife to Florida.
I was told to put the head in a waterproof duffel and wrap the hide in a tarp tie up and duct tape then check as luggage.
Did you use anything on your goggles to stop them from fogging such as rain-x?
What did you wear under your cold gear?
I've also heard talk of people using a whisker bisket instead of a drop- away rest, has anybody had their drop-away rest fail on this hunt?
I'd wear a pink thong under your cold weather gear.
I'd use extra long fake eye lashes to keep your goggles free of ice.
Hope these ideas work for you. They should endear you to your guides and encourage them to work extra hard to get you a big old bull.
I should have most of the stuff ready to ship to you by the end of the day. One thing to remember is that the frame of the goggles is curved where it comes around the sides of your face.....as a result, there is a small spot in the vicinity of your temples that can allow cold air in.....I had a couple different solutions for that, which I can share as your departure draws nearer.......
You can use a white tube sock (with the toes cut out)to keep the anorak from flapping in the wind on your bow arm....just slide it up your arm.....
Jake thanks again for all your help!
There is no moisture to freeze.
It is 100X more relable in those -50 temps where you have no precipitation or melting/freezing going on than if you were in a tree stand in Kentucky with the sleet falling and it being 25 degrees.
I'm bringing all the meat back in 18 gallon totes and the hide in a medium Big Foot bag. Google them, you might want to grab one.
Canada north out of cambridge bay?
I'm hunting with adventure northwest out of yellowknife.
It is about 7pm your time, and the rumor mill has it that you already have a bull down....Congrats!!!
