Thread: 2016 moose hunt

  1. #1

    Default 2016 moose hunt

    Found this guy Monday evening and took him down Tuesday morning. He was with a couple of cows and living on the side of a mountain. It was a tough pack out but well worth the effort. Saw a good amount of legal bills this year and when I left yesterday hunting pressure was almost nil. I hope my buddies still in camp can connect with a couple of them.


    Can't believe how fast the season flew by this year. I've got a Unit 13 caribou tag to fill and hunting season is done for me.

    Take a shot and see how close you get, it's another good way to judge bulls for those that hunt in size restricted areas. I can tell you my guess was off by a little bit.

    We taped him at an even 60" which ties him as my biggest bull to date.

    Beastly! I was gonna guess 64" but I was wrong. I am amazed how tall those antlers are. Sounds like you have quite the spot.

    Got lucky on that one. I tagged him at exactly that......really no kidding! I didn't think he would be more than that because his palms are so tall. Beautiful bull with fantastic points...!!!

    You don't see many bulls much bigger in this area but they do tend to sport some long tines when they get older.

    When you say this area, what are the GPS coordinates? Joking but curious what unit or general part of the state this is if you care to share. Awesome genetics.

    Eastern interior is where I hunt. I'd say the unit number but this place really gets hammered hard the first week and half of the season.

    On another note, has anyone used Natures Image taxidermy? I dropped my antlers off there for a European mount and wanted to keep it local.

    Eastern interior explains it enough for me. Don't want to wreck a good thing.
