    Congrats! Gotta love it when you can utilize the big tools to carve up your moose. Which permit did you have?

    it was dm783 any moose within a half mile of the rich from flood control to banner creek, i was surprised how long it took me to find one i patterned a cow so i knew i could get one anytime but wanted a bull and almost got about a 45" i could have killed him twice if i was rifle hunting but he was pretty spooky and non responcive to calling, anyway i was headed to work and stopped to check a spot and saw a pair of ears moving so i grabbed the bow and went to take a look and had 5 moose stand up when i hit about the 40yd. mark 2 little bull's,a cow and two calves so i opted to go ahead and fill my tag with a little bull.

    Very nice. I put in for that permit as my first choice last year, but didn't draw squat. Way to get it done!

    Congrats on your moose! Good eating right there, for sure.

    btw, is that you in your profile pictures? If so, it looks like you lost a bunch of weight! Planning a sheep hunt?
