This blog is from our friend Scott Prucha. He’s got some BIG plans this fall!
From Scott –
Back in December of 2013 I went on a moose hunt in Alaska I was worried may never happen. This trip was a lifelong dream of my best friend Kurt Schroeder and mine. We always knew someday we would do the trip when the time was right. What could go wrong? Well in 2010 Kurt was diagnosed with non-Hodgkin’s lymphoma. Cancer! Obviously a life changing event and the dreams of a moose hunt the least of our concerns.
After a year and a half battle Kurt had one of his final check-ups. The hope was this appointment would confirm he was cancer free. I remember the day clearly, he had a mid-morning appointment and said he would call me as soon as he was done, likely around 11 am. Minutes seemed like hours as I waited for his call. Noon came without a call, 1pm still no call. At this point I am sure the news can’t be good. Finally around 2 pm his number appears on my phone. I pick up the call and the first thing he says is, “Scott were going moose hunting”. The trip was a success, Kurt shot a great moose, and we were able to live out a lifelong dream.
Well 5 years later we are going to do it all over again! This September we are headed back to Alaska, where we will be dropped off in a location we have never been before. We will be on our own, me, Kurt and my brother Mike (running camera and more importantly helping pack meat) for ten days. No guides! The ultimate adventure, you need to figure everything out on your own. All on public land, the beautiful and unforgiving Alaska wilderness. We hope to bring some entertaining video home along with some moose meat. If we succeed with video part we will share it here on The Hunting Public. Stay tuned and wish us luck, we will need it.
