The article presents information related to the author's experience about moose hunt in Alaska. The author left from Atlanta and headed for Fairbanks, Alaska, for his first hunt for moose. The first day consisted of purchasing hunting licenses and snacks for the week ahead. The next morning arrived very quickly, and they spotted a small bull moose trying to cross from the other side of the river. The moose was in the archery-only section of the dam project. They watched him from the top of the dam, and he went exactly where they wanted him to. As the moose started to cross the road, something startled him and he turned and went back into the timber.
