How long do you plan on being up there in BC for your Moose hunt?
I have driven from Sonoma Co., CA to Alaska way back in 1984 when the main road HWY 93 was under construction up in BC and taking our time I made the trip to Valdez in 7 days.
Driving is not that hard unless you don't like driving long distance.
You should be able to drive to FSJ in 3-4 days. Have you talked with your Outfitter about the meat and antlers as far as bring back to USA? I would thing that there has to be a place up there in FSJ where you can get Dry Ice. Take at least ONE large cooler for meat. A good pickup with camper shell will be a lot better than wasting money on crating, shipping etc.
This is the way I would go about this hunt, but not everyone is retired like me now. Back then I saved up 4 weeks of vacation, both the wife and I so there was no rushing.
Good luck on your Moose hunt, I was suppose to go on one in Chetwynn, BC back in 1972 but got the shaft by a crooked outfitter....so I turned around and came home to CA. never got to hunt.
Mike...you can drive up to Weed, CA on I-5 and take Hwy 97 there and it goes right straight to FSJ, BC Canada....FYI
