Ok, so it's great to see the massive racks of big Bulls but the hunt that results in a Meat Bull can be just as rewarding. Perhaps even more if it's a first for a new hunter, youngster, first bow kill, first hunt with the wifey, etc....or, as in my case this year.... an almost empty freezer! Personally I shoot the first one I can. For moose I hunt an any bull area. I want meat! A big rack is secondary but I won't pass one up.
I know, I know, some guys call the 50+ incher a meat bull but for this thread you know what I mean.
So let's see those Spike-Forks, Rag Horns, Paddle Bulls, Cows, etc. along with a quick write up.
This one is a special on for me, I've been working on it for a few years. My first Handgun kill. Solo hunt. 500 Linebaugh. Spotted him about a mile away and stalked to 43 yards. This guy had a pretty big body for the size of his rack. I've shot moose with bigger racks and smaller bodies. The freezer is full of half the moose and some others I know now have meat as well! whoohoo!! We're all eatin good this winter!
