    Default Moose score

    Ok, I realize this isn't a trophy bull but it will be very, very good in the stew pot. This goofy bull stood looking at me yesterday morning, so I let him have it between the eyes. It was hot and the bugs were so bad I didn't have time to try to figure out how to use the timer on the camera, otherwise I'd have tried to get my mug included in the photo. Next year I'm going to consider hunting with a partner, these 50 year old bones are plenty sore today. Of course, that's what I said last time!!

    Default Good Deal

    Its always been my contention to never pass up the first legal animal that you have a chance at. Spike/forks eat good.

    Nice moose. I hear you about the heat and bugs they are a pain when working on a downed animal.

    A moose in the hand is better than a moose in the bush. Good job. My first was a spike fork. And he was fork tender.

    Nice work, you can't eat the antlers, the spikes are better tasting... that all ads up to a pile of good meals all winter.

    In my opinion, it's too early for cow calls and grunts. Heck, it's too early to hunt, just too hot and the flies and yellow jackets are unbelievable. I usually don't hunt moose until mid-September but with the shortened season a guy really doesn't have much choice. It's also my opinion that the most important thing while moose hunting is to take your time. You'd be surprised at what you miss when you're in a hurry or hiking balls to walls trying to cover a lot of ground. Of course, age has taught me this. When I was younger, I was a wild man, just couldn't cover enough ground. I killed moose but had to work a lot harder at it. When I think back on those times, I wonder how many moose I walked by without knowing they were there.
    Just my opinion.

    Perfect size I'd say. Want to see one that size for my younger son to shoot to give away to all the elders in the community, and other relative in neighboring villages.

    A gun is like a parachute. If you need one, and donít have one, youíll probably never need one again
