Hunting in Alaska: Episode 5 - Battling the Elements

Welcome to the Hunting in Alaska Series on Realtree Global. We join Ian Harford and Steve Wild behind-the-scenes on their epic Alaska hunting adventure.

The dramatic change in weather continues to cause problems at camp. As the day goes on the rain finally stops and the fog lifts, Ian and Steve take advantage and head out to glass the area.

This is a great opportunity to check out any game movement. It isn’t long before Ian spots two young moose bulls sparring in the distance. They also believe they get a glimpse of a brown bear feeding. As the team discuss their approach, the unpredictability of the weather brings in thick fog and once again halts their plan.

The next day and the poor weather conditions are still delaying any progress. It’s another morning in camp for the team as they busy themselves with essential chores around the camp.

As the day draws on the weather improves, it give Ian and Steve the opportunity of glassing their surroundings and with some luck, spot some elusive game.
