Great pictures of a great adventure guy. I know that Jake is trying to build-up stick time.

Calling moose to camp is THE way for me to do it these days...I've packed enough over the years. Really cool that you got that Wolverine! In thirty-five years of active hunting up here I've only seen three when in the field hunting, and those situations didn't offer a shot. Did it have a musky (almost skunky) odor to it?

...and really smart to add-on the fishing time when you get some holes in your schedule...late season fishing is the best!

Really fantastic write-up and great pictures. Sounds like a dream trip. Everything was going so well, enjoying the pictures and writing....then I saw the UM Griz hat on the fishing part and tumbled into despair. My daughter went there, plus many great friends, plus have an employee in a UM building - so I got over it quickly.

In over 40 years in the mountains in Montana I've seen one wolverine, not in the mountains but eating road kill while on a very early morning drive to hunt. Amazing to see. Also saw clear tracks of two wolverines after a fresh snowstorm in the Spanish Peaks. Congrats on seeing and getting one and hope you share pictures of the mount with the moose antler down the road.

Awesome hunt! Thanks for sharing.

Awesome adventure. Thanks for taking the time to document the story and share it with us on Rokslide. Congratulations on a nice bull and wolverine.

Wow - that things looks like the spitting image of my Cabela's 4-man XPG Expedition Tent.

Congrats on a great trip and great company. Sure missed that country this year.
Funny you mention that. Jake's dad has the 4 man and we opted for the 6. As you state, they are identical if you don't have something to compare to for scale.

He did smell, but not strong. I suspect it was the fact that he had been swimming a lot searching for bones. Badgers that I've killed smelled stronger. It was only the second wolverine that Jake has had a client take.

Thanks. If there is fishing to do, I'll try to do it. One only gets to go to some placed only so often. Make the most of the time when you are there. Once my wife grants permission, of course.

The two wolverine that I've seen previously were both on the front. One in a place called Pretty Prairie just into the Bob Marshall and the other near Benchmark out of Augusta. Sorry, I'm a Griz fan. I went to MT Tech, though. Thank you for the kind words.

Awesome write up and photos. I'll probably never get the chance to do that, but it sure is fun to read about it. Congrats on the bull and wolverine.

Thats a trip. You have many great pics, but the best has to be the dead moose with tent in the background. Unreal.
