Thread: DM 766 success!

    Default DM 766 success!

    I just returned from my hunt out the Rex trail. I was hunting for 4 days before I found a nice fat little bull moose. He had 33 inch antlers and 2 brow tines on each side. This was my first moose ever, and I couldn't have been more happy. The weather was really nice during my hunt...only -16 degrees. I found the bull in a large swamp and shot him with my 50 caliber muzzleloader from about 100 yards. I had a couple of really good friends come help me haul him back out the trail to the truck and got home at 1am, only to have to work the next morning at 7am.

    Here are a couple pictures of the moose.

    Congrats on a fine bull. It looks like the muzzleloader of yours put one heck of a hole in that guy. Feel free to add details of the hunt. Did you use a wheeler or snowmachine? Any other animal sightings?

    Who needs a freezer this time of year. We unplug our freezers. My electric bill is high enough. I let mother nature do some work for me.

    From the constant bad press about the Rex trail on this website, how in the world did you ever manage to make it down a trail that is suppose to be impassable?

    Good job on a nice bull! A freezer full of moose meat sure is nice.

    I was able to get down the rex without any problems at all. The trail was deeply rutted in places, but my snowmachine didn't have any problems except I had to get off into the powder to keep the machine cool because the trail was so packed. The rivers were frozen and easy to cross. I put all the details of the hunt in the muzzleloader forum:
