Alaska State Troopers are describing what sounds like a weekend moose hunt from hell along the Chistochina River about 200 miles northeast of Anchorage.
Problems, according to a trooper dispatch, started with some partying, which led to some shooting -- maybe -- which led to two would-be hunters being hauled off to jail.
Troopers reported they received a 911 call at about 9:30 p.m. Sunday from 35-year-old Jeremy Rutherford of Eagle River. He told the dispatcher he'd set out on a hunting trip up the Chistochina with 29-year-old Robert Edwards and a friend troopers identified only by the last name "Eversmeyer."
The three men made camp somewhere along the river, and then the craziness began.
