Three days into a Brooks Range hunting trip, Bob Condon’s friend spotted the moose.
It was grazing along the tree line, the 73-year-old Soldotna resident said, and it was big.
He was perched on top of a prominence with his friend, who had been glassing the valley, and Condon called the moose for almost two hours.
“I thought he was going somewhere else rather than coming to my call; he didn’t seem to be responsive,” he said. “They do that, though — they ignore you, then all of a sudden they just turn and make up their mind they’re going to come to it.”
