My trip to Alaska
By: Austin John Hoss
My trip to Alaska wasn’t your average family trip. 80 degrees in the car -20 outside. When we got to the cabin I unpacked, in my bag I had my 44 mag, bullets, 4 shirts, 2 pairs of pants, and socks. Im glad I brought the 44 because that night a bear destroyed the trash cans, So my cousin grabbed his 300 win mag and I grabbed the 44 and we ran outside and shot in the air and scared it away. I shot first then I aimed at the bear I had his face in my sights. It was the most terrifying moment of my life. If he would have moved or even twitched he would not have been very happy I had 300 gr hornady loads in my 44 mag with a 10 1\2 inch barrel more than capable of killing a grizzly. The next day we went for a drive, the land was so beautiful it was breath taking. We seen moose, a pack of wolves, and the mountains. When we got back my cousin and I went hunting I had a 308 win and he had a 30-06 Springfield. We didn't see anything so we went back and shot at bottles. The next 3 days we stayed at the cabin and talked about life. When we left I was so sad because I wanted to stay. The car ride home took forever my brother would not shut up. When we got back I was so happy to be home. Iowa is the only place for me. Next time I plan to go wolf hunting because I am a coyote hunter by heart and I figure it can’t be much different. My cousin says he knows where a lot of wolves are so I guess we'll see.
Where it all happened
It all took place in the small town of Bethal Alaska.
what we seen
the wolves were following a moose trail.
The grizzly was huge.
The moose was over 7 feet tall and with antlers that spread 6 ft across.
I had my 44 super blackhawk.
My cousins 300 win mag.
Alaska is so beautiful especially when the sun goes down.
This was the highlight of the trip.
Bethal Alaska is the coolest place anyone could go.
