Jamie’s Hunt 2 – 2009
Uncle Alex — Thanks so much for taking the time to join our hunt and call in a moose for me. This was a hunt of a lifetime – both for getting my first moose and seeing you in action. That was incredible! It was a blast! … Jamie MacMullin

Alex — Just wanted you to know that this year’s moose hunt was a tremendous learning experience for me. As you know, I’ve been a successful deer hunter for many many years but was very much a greenhorn with moose hunting. But watching you call in three bull moose that came directly to your calls was an amazing thing to experience — and each one was well within 25-30 yards. I’ve never before seen anything like it. Thanks so much for making this hunt such a great one for us all, but especially for my son, Jamie.

Hi there, my good friend Alex. Just wanted to let you know that I had a terrific learning experience with you on this hunt. I been hunting moose in Newfoundland for over 30 years and I got to say your ability to call moose is amazing. I guided moose hunters in Newfoundland and was in on a lot of other hunts over the years but this year’s hunt in Cape Breton ranks # 1 in my books. Since the hunt I have watched your ‘Moose Madness ‘Quick-Fix’ For The Hunter’ four times and learn something new each time I watch it — but nothing compares with having watched you personally in action. Thanks for the learning experience. Stay Safe! Thanks Again!

Footnote: This was a family affair. I promised my nephew Jamie that if he was ever drawn in the Nova Scotia Moose Draw that I would come to Nova Scotia to call for him. Bad weather cancelled(sic) the first day of the hunt but the weather cleared up by about four PM. We didn’t have time to go to our selected hunting spot but I took the group to a place where I had filmed before. While it was a legal hunting area we had to pass through an area of Park where firearms were prohibited – so this was to be a practice run so that the group could experience calling and setups. I called in two separate bulls that came directly to us – each was about 20-25 yards from us at different times. We had a lot of fun that evening. The next day we hit our hunting area and Jamie’s bull responded to my calls on the afternoon of the hunt. Jamie made a beautiful 25-yard, one-shot kill that dropped his bull on the spot. Jamie’s father Allan and friend Bruce Barter were the companion shooters
