Alaska Moose Hunting 2015

The fall moose hunt is a tradition for many Alaskans and the way to fill the freezer for winter.Ricko DeWilde is one of 14 siblings who grew up trapping and hunting in Huslia. Nowadays, he lives in Fairbanks and travels back to the village each autumn to hunt for his family and village elders. Over the past few years, videographers Bruce Sam, David Vent and Josh Ligairi have documented DeWilde’s hunts, creating atmospheric videos of what DeWilde considers the most natural thing he can think of: harvesting meat for his family.DeWilde grew up hundred miles up the North Fork of the Huslia River. He and his siblings were homeschooled by their parents, who wanted to live a traditional subsistence way of life.DeWilde still likes to hunt in the traditional ways, keeping in mind Koyukon Athabascan taboos around hunting."There are many unique and strong harvesting rituals around animals that the Koyukon Athabascans still follow today," according to DeWilde. They especially revolve around wolves, wolverines and bears, because they are believed to be the "old animals" -- older than human beings.DeWilde tries to waste nothing. The meat is kept clean and the edible organs are removed. DeWilde says, “It’s surreal how much is wasted in sporthunting.”To submit your video to Alaska Dispatch News contact Tara Young at tara(at)

There's always plenty happening at the Lucky Wishbone in Anchorage. Veterans Day is no different. The restaurant's 93-year-old founder and owner, George Brown, served as an Army Air Corps pilot shuttling fuel and supplies in China during World War II. He celebrates Veterans Day by doing what he does every day -- honoring fellow veterans and his employees. It's a recipe for longevity. The iconic Fairview eatery is about to turn 60.
