    No I am more of a meat hunter! This is a 'nice' bull to see and should be a good breeding bull for a few more years.

    Yea, too bad all his offspring live in a wildlife preserve. I believe this guy hangs out over in the northern part of the airport, lots of pics taken over the years.

    Awesome! I just got back from a Newfie moose hunt a a hunter that was under our outfitter had a true monster for the island at 30 yards and gun would not fire - tried three times before moose trotted off, very experienced guide said it was the biggest he has ever seen in 20 years of hunting...
    Hunter cleaned bolt with gas back at camp and it worked then... didn't fire his gun before he went on the trip, that would hurt - owchee...
    When asked what state I live in I say "The State of Confusion", better known as IL....
