    Default No Moose, but I found this.....

    I took my Dad out for a quick moose hunt on Friday/Saturday. We saw a few small bulls in the 35" range, and a couple cows before it started to heat up, but nothing legal. However, I walked up over a ridge & heard a squeel, looked down below me & spotted a coyote with a rabbit at it's feet. Decided to take her....my first coyote with a rabbit as a bonus!

    Also & even more exciting is I found my first bull moose kill from last winter. I was walking through some alders & stumbled upon a pile of bones & hair & just to my left I found this skull & antlers. Only 2 brow tines...any guesses on the size? Of course I already measured, but just wanted to test your ability. I also found a couple other sheds which made for a great day!

    Default 57"

    I would guess 57". The average man is 19" at the shoulders. Looks like it about 3 times as big as your shoulders. Nice rack if it is.

    Default 53"

    What his right side lacks, his left side makes up for; if both sides were like his right side I'd go 48"

    Hard to tell because you're holding it at a slight angle

    I think it's over 60", I'll say 62"

    I use 10" between the bases as a guide

    those long points on the main palm look like they go way out there but it's hard to tell for sure because of the angle
