I took my family out for a "moose hunt" more like a drive with a gun. My son has a cow tag for Pt. Mac so we loaded up the van and decided to take a Sunday afternoon drive to see if we could find us a moose. We drive to a spot we had spotted a cow the week before and decided to look around. With my 7 boys, wife and myself I wasn't too optimistic, but thought we would give it one last try. I have spent most weekends and some of my evenings trying to find me/him a moose. I have had several repairs/breakdowns on my atv and was having a rather frustrating season thus far. We didn't see anything at that spot, so decided to explore some more down the road. We get to the end and decided to turn around and head home as it was getting late and we needed to get the kids to bed. Sure enough we rounded a corner and what's standing beside the road a little fork horn.
He walked off down a dirt road and into a newly excavated clearing. I grabbed the gun and went after him. Once I confirmed he was legal a quick 100yd shot it a dirt clearing he was down.
I didn't really bring what I needed to process him in the dark, so I called my brother-in-law and seen if he could bring his trailer and we could load it whole.
After some excitement getting my brother-in-law unstuck we loaded it on the trailer and brought it home to do the processing in the garage.
Couldn't be happier that I was able to get my first moose with the whole family involved.
Btw I have 4 boys of my own and 3 foster sons.
