Here we are, 26 days into the hunt (I have hunted 20 of those days) and I had not seen one moose. Lots of sign, but warm weather then cold has made the ground like walking on Dorito Corn Chips with giant Clown shoes! Finally able to see my first moose this afternoon and wouldn't you believe it, she committed suicide 15 minutes later :-) Thanks to a 17 yard shot, quartering away, clean pass through (arrow bloody but in perfect condition). Double lung and expired in about 1-2 minutes, less than a 100 yards from my truck. Lots of fat on her and very healthy. Hanging in the garage at this time!
Oh, BTW, about Dec 18 or 19 I found a hunting knife in the road between 425 and 429. If you lost a knife, describe it (other than it being very dull) and I will return it.
