    Default Last day of moose season

    2011-09-25_10-39-26_443.jpg64 3/4" Hunting partner and I had to pack him a mile (10 hours non stop!) My "stick+string" was a 300 win mag BTW. My partner had his bow with him and we tried to stalk the bull, but his cows started to leave, and so did he, so we had to shoot quick. We actually did a quick rock-scissors-paper for who got to shoot with the gun and I lucked out.

    What an awesome spread. Long tines and huge shovel brows are the best features on a bull.
    We do not go to the green woods and crystal waters to rough it, we go to smooth it. We get it rough enough at home; in towns and cities; in shops, offices, stores, banks anywhere that we may be placed

    You are blessed! What won rock or scissors? I would have been happy the whole 10hr hump.

    Very nice bull.

    Although I have a visual in my head where the two of you continue to rock-paper-scissor but keep tying, and when one of you finally wins, the bull has already wandered off. Man that would suck.

    Way to stick it out and what a great bull!! Its good to have hunting partners like that some guys/gals would get in a fist fight over who got to shoot.

    Here's another pic of him. His right main palm has this crazy character in it - it bends/folds about 90 degrees back all down the length of the palm. I thought it might be from damage or injury while in velvet, but a guy who knows what he's talking about told me that the "fold" is somewhat common in the genetics in the area I was hunting.
