I have booked with Virgil Umphenour for September 2016 to hunt in the Koyukuk NWR. I don't know how I will, make the wait until September, as waiting for January to know if i draw a tag for the hunt is killing me. My question is have any of you fine fellas ever hunted with Virgil, and if so what can I expect to see?

I haven't hunted with Virgil but I did hunt the Koyukuk and had a phenomenal time. Lots of moose including some real whoppers. Do yourself a favor and read, "Shadows on the Koyukuk" before you go.

That book is really good. I know his grandson well and it's always nice to hear the stories!

Got to meet Sidney Huntington while at the airport in Galena. Amazing man and even more amazing story. Was a great hunt and experience but not with your outfitter.

Many thanks for the info guys, I can use the good reads to pass the time, as it seems like an eternity until time to go.
