    Default DM771 on the Wood

    Got a 43" on the Wood river on the 12th. The night before a 50" plus came into my 6 o'clock and got thru the brush before I could get a shot. Started raining right after the kill at 0745, then followed by snow. Snowed for the rest of the trip every AM. Finally got out on the 18th. The big boys seem to move thru the washout at dawn and dusk, and the dummies like this one meander thru the open areas a little later. Details: 375 H&H with 260 nosler partitions, 170 meter shot, 1/2 mile from camp. My back hurts.

    Sort of related; I am hearing that the local game processing places have been overwhelmed, more than usual, and that some are turning away basic butchering services. They will take yr stuff for sausages, burger, etc. but not the big cutting and related stuff.

    Butchering starts in the field where we try to get all the fat and blood shot meat off. Back home I try to get just clean meat to the processors.
    I use C&J and Indian Valley.

    Nice moose! And great job of shooting it on the gravel bar, I'm guessing much easier to break down there than in the willows?

    You bet, but the way this hunt work is that you usually shoot them on the gravel bar.
