Lyle Hadel, of Juneau, tries to drag a moose from the water during a hunting trip in Yakutat recently. His hunting partner, Soapy Lingle, who also is from Juneau, shot the moose with a clean hit to the neck. Lingle said he removed about 600 pounds of meat from the moose, which he estimated weighed about 1,000 pounds. Lingle said he hunts for the meat and not for sport.
