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.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.
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.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!
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.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.
