CANADA MOOSE ROUNDUP


Antoine Spillman and crew with a big Yukon bull moose. Nicely done!

There's bulls in them hills.  It may be getting harder to come by that moose in certain parts of the States, but the moose are thriving topside in northwestern Canada. Case in point—B&C recently verified the all-time record 263 5/8 moose, taken in Yukon in September of 2013, breaking the 1994 record. What a monster! While you can't expect to see a moose like that in several lifetimes, you can bet on a pretty great spread.

Subscriber Antoine Spillman (9354) had a fine Klondike adventure with David Dickson of Dickson Outfitters, taking a 53-inch with his bow. “Bow hunters' paradise, and rifle hunters have plenty of opportunities to pick large trophies. I had the chance to take a 14-year-old mature bull. We encountered big game every day, and Dickson knows his concession backwards and forwards.”

 

J. Kevin Ciavarra (9324) hunted British Columbia with Bradford Hickman of Blue Stone Guiding and Adventures, reaching the magic 50-inch mark. “Abundant moose. Normally I wait until I get my trophy to send in a report, but I was so happy with Bradford and the other guides and staff that I couldn't wait. Very genial crew.”

 

Grant Wilson (9379) and his son travelled from New Zealand to British Columbia's Spatsizi Wilderness, and found “a great variety of huntable game. The moose were in rut mode, in healthy condition.” He hunted with Collingwood Bros. Guides and Outfitters. “Each of us took a great moose, getting out every day and hunting hard with outstanding, dedicated guides.” Jeff Kimbell (9479) also hunted BC with Collingwood Bros. Apparently, this is one outfitter that can handle a full house! Kimball reports, “We took two boys under four, a babysitter, my wife, and my business partner for two full weeks. The wolves came into a couple of the valleys and it got very warm right before we came to camp, but my wife, Jessica, got a gorgeous moose in velvet. Fantastic fly fishing for rainbows and bull trout, and the best food of any hunt ever (they have a pro chef flown in from Vancouver).”

 

Here's one we've seen a few times before: In the Northwest Territories, Mike Daley (9319) took both moose and mountain caribou in a marathon first day with Clint Andros of Nahanni Butte Outfitters. “Getting both species the first day was amazing but extremely tiring! Fell into the tent exhausted at 2:00 AM after taking care of the moose. It was worth it! Great trophies.”

 

(Editor’s Note: For a full report on the status of moose in the Lower 48 see the upcoming April issue of The Hunting Report. We’ll tell you what areas have been hardest hit by disease, predators and more permit cuts. Plus, we’ll have more detailed hunt reports from subscribers who chased after moose this past season, giving you fresh-from-the-field overviews.)

NYALA BEYOND SOUTH AFRICA


Robert Duhadaway with his spectacular Mountain Nyala.

Spiral dreams. Those beautiful, ivory tipped horns don't always come easy, especially outside South Africa where the nyala can be more sparse. The big males truly fit the moniker 'bull,' as opposed to 'buck.' In Mozambique, Pemble Davis (9338) saw “lots of quality animals” with PH Julian Moller of Zambeze Delta Safaris, taking hartebeest, suni, duiker, and a 29-inch nyala. “Very good PH, very organized. Bring a good telephoto camera, 'cause there's lots of game to see.” Also with Moller, Kayleigh Wright (9352) took a “huge” 30-inch nyala. “Well executed hunt by Julian Moller in a nice, clean camp. Picked a nice bull out of a group grazing beneath the trees.” Besides the elusive nyala, Wright's safari included catching a poacher and, unfortunately, malaria, but a good time was had by all (except the poacher).

Douglas Fraser (
9428) hunted nyala in Zambia with Shawn and Dene Bird of Balla-Balla Safaris, the nyala being one item on an impressive list of trophies. “Great outfit—very friendly people and wonderful PH's, great accommodations and food. Zambia hunting is alive and well.”

The mountain nyala only lives in the high montane of Ethiopia, where Jim Hascup (
9426) hunted with Dave Rademeyer of Northern Operations Africa. “Mountain nyala were abundant here, and we saw three bulls on the first day! Be in good shape, as this hunt is at 10,000 feet!” He took a 41-inch top-10 SCI mountain nyala. Robert Duhadaway (8726) also filed a great report on Rademeyer and Northern Operations Africa's mountain nyala. “What a fantastic animal! Every bit as big as a bongo. The quota is very limited and the nyala here are literally dying of old age. We saw a great number of beautiful animals and were able to watch them grazing in the thickets. I would recommend this hunt to anyone looking for a mountain nyala.”

SPOTLIGHT: URIAL OF PAKISTAN

Sheep on the steeps. Our far-flung correspondents are everywhere where there's wild sheep, and we have a few good reports on hunting the urial, smaller cousin to the argali, which lives further to the east in Asia. Be forewarned: getting this species might involve some adventure, good or bad. Mike Borel (9528) took a Blanford urial with Caprinae Safaris in Pakistan. “I was warmly received on this hunt. Great guides and unique animals. Unfortunately I got a parasite and was delayed in Gilgit for three days due to fighting between the Sunis and the Shiites.” Anthony Kozyski (7691) took a potential record Blanford urial with Caprinae in Pakistan, measuring in at 36 inches. “I choose to go to a more difficult area with a chance for big urial, and it paid off. When I shot the animal there was a lot of shouting back and forth from the guides, because it was the biggest animal they had seen! I could not be happier with all aspects of this hunt, accommodations, guides and the hospitality. My guide Riza was a great companion, and Caprinae really got it done for me.” Donald Jacklin (8600) also had a smooth trip in Pakistan, hunting the Kirthar National Park. He took both Punjab and Blanford urial with Karakurum Hunts and Tours, booked through The Hunting Consortium. “This was one of the best hunts I have ever been on! Quality of game was very high! Anchan Mirza of Karakurum was superb. Awesome hunting for unique animals.”
