Giveaway: Of moose and women.

I’ll be heading back to Seattle soon, but I can’t leave the Last Frontier without giving away some Alaskana.

Here’s what’s up for grabs this week:

The 2011 Alaska Moose calendar — a year’s worth of funky ungulates. My favorite is July, a mama moose soaking herself in a lawn sprinkler. The calendar is photographed and produced by the Anchorage Daily News, my former employer.

An “Alaska Girls Kick Ass” bumper sticker, aka a little attitude from a northern latitude. (This item generated much interest during summer giveaways.)

To enter:

If you do any (or all!) of these things, please leave additional comments to get credit for each entry.

Entry deadline is 9 p.m. PST Monday, Dec. 27.

  1. Moose are my favorite, behind turtles and wolves. When I was in high school we had to design an airline and I named mine MooseAir. Instructor not too sure it would exude confidence to see a big moose on the tail fin of an airplane…….so what, who cares. haha. Happy Holidays.

      @Erin: Thanks for bringing that up. I’d forgotten that meter-feeding is illegal in some places. But hey, unless a law is posted prominently I might just forget that it exists…And maybe they’d let me off with a warning if I were caught.

  17. An indelible moose memory: In a Fairbanks restaurant one winter, the waiter announced, “There’s a moose outside.” Everyone instantly vacated the warm restaurant and their warm dinners to stand in the snow and watch (at a respectful distance) a moose eat leaves.

  18. The calendar sounds like a hoot!
