    Congrats on a fine moose! They sure like to fall in positions that make the fiell dressing job tougher, huh?

    Good job on the moose - looks like it should have filled the freezer well.

    On Monday and Tuesday I was concentrating on an area where we had seen cows the first couple days, but ended up not seeing didn't see any moose at all. On Wednesday I went to an area that most hunters don't know about because of it's secluded location. My son and I had been down in this meadow on the second day and had seen 3 cows and a calf. Its about a 20 minute walk through the trees so I took my time getting down there eating wild blueberries and cranberries. Now for the wierd part.....I NEVER still hunt, but that night I decided to sit down on the edge of this meadow and sit until dark. I sat in a spot where I could see the entire meadow and keep an eye on the willows behind me. I was sitting on my daypack but after about 10 minutes and my butt started getting wet from the saturated ground. I had just repositioned my pack when I looked to the far end of the meadow and saw a moose coming out of the trees. It was only about 8 pm so I figured it was just another cow, but when I got my binoculars on it I saw it was a bull. At about 250 yards, I saw he had 3 brow tines on his left antler, and after double checking the points, I gave him a .300 win mag to the chest. He ran into the willows, but gave me a perfect broadside shot, so I put another round into him. I was getting ready to hit him again when he layed down. I heard the obvious huffing and wheezing so I knew it was a lung shot. It's not my largest moose, but probably the prettiest since he was still in velvet. I took it into the taxidermist so that they could preserve the velvet. While we were cutting the moose up, we saw 2 cows, a calf and a sub-legal bull walk out into the muskeg.

    Default Nice Job

    Thanks for the story, and kudos for involving your son. Out of curiosity, did you use a chainsaw on that skull cap? What's on the velvet?
