    Default Large moose or a small truck.

    Don't know anything about this photo. A friend sent it to me without any info.

    If that was mine I'd make a few laps through town showing that baby off.

    If that made a few laps I bet it would be like the Pied Piper. Every hunter in town would be following it.

    How lucky can a guy be? Getting a moose like that close enough to get it whole in the back of a truck!

    I've got 2 more photos from different angles of it. I'm pretty sure it's not photo shopped

    in order to get that moose into the TK whole you would need a FORK LIFT or a lot of people I think you had that many people I don't know if it could be
    with people no place to grag SID

    Back east, like in Maine, a lot of moose are retrieved with skidders. Shoot a moose, go find a guy hauling logs and pay him to get your moose and put it in your truck on the logging road.

    I winched a whole bull into a back of a truck once.........wasn't near that big tho. I also put two 50" bulls in a dakota once myself...... albeit they were in pieces, but backed right up to one of them, and the other was only about a hundred yard pack.....

    That was a real lucky day no doubt...!!!

    I had a 1700 pound Bison place whole (gutted) in the back of a Ford ranger, it was low in he back but had the tail gate closed feet up, a sight to see. the guide had a winch driven boom looked like a wishbone mounted in the bed of a chevy full size that lifted it up
