    Default Moose retrieval

    Having the appropriate equipment can really expand where you are comfortable shooting a moose. In years past I would not have even considered shooting this moose - add a canoe and chainsaw capstan and a little swamp isn't even a 2nd thought. My daughter made a nice shot to put this one in the freezer, took good patience on her part to assure she had a good shot. Used the capstan to pull the moose to dry ground under a hanging tree for quick processing. A couple nights of frost and cool breezes made the perfect hanging conditions. The canoe and capstan made quick and pain free retrieval to the boat for the transport out. Getting too old not to take advantage of the equipment.

    I've used a $100 inflatable canoe and a rope-a-along with good success.................
    I once held the yardstick of anothers perfection, I threw it down and carved my own................
