Good morning, Alaska! Just a request from any successful moose hunters who are so inclined, I'd like a few frontal and/or side pics of 50" moose. I'm trying my best to be prepared for a first time moose hunt with my son ( Ak resident, military) in September.
I'm a Michigan resident, trying hard to prep thoroughly for this trip. Been working out strenuously, getting a good load for my Marlin Guide gun, but still can't say I'd recognize a 50" moose in the wild.
HERE'S MY PLAN:
A.) Find pics of MEASURED moose racks, make mock-ups of OSB or plywood, and take them into the field or to the shooting range and get good at estimating them by naked eye, 8x binoculars, 2.5x scope, and spotting scope. Real photos might make this more feasible. If not,
B.) Wing it. Make an "artistic rendering" and give it my best shot.
(Actually, I'd just love to see what I'm looking for , to be completetly stoked before I land in your heaven-on-earth.)
My humble thanks for any and all replies.
