Upon arrival at his base camp, he cautioned me not to expect to see many bulls during my hunt. Despite Alaska's reputation as a hot spot for big moose, the Alaskan government does not categorize the Bering Unit as a trophy hunt. Instead, the state allows 25 residents and 5 nonresidents a "subsistence" or meat hunt in the area. To get their moose meat, hunters are allowed to use Everglades-style airboats to go deep within the Bering unit after moose. Fejes vehemently opposes the use of the boats, calling it "unfair chase," but he has not been able to convince the government to discontinue it. The airboat hunters had killed 20 moose in the nine days before I arrived. The big bulls, Fejes said, were hiding deep in the alder thickets with their cows, behaving like whitetail deer.
