Let me start off by apologizing for no pics
My wife and son camped out the day opening day.(I had to work.) Opening morning they took the canoe across the lake and spent the morning fighting thick brush, devils club, and only seeing brown bears.
After taking the afternoon off to take a nap, they decided to drive down the road to another area and spend the evening glassing a large meadow. On the way to the meadow, my son says, "It would be awesome if a big bull walked out in front of us right now." The moose gods must have been listening to him, around the next corner a 41" with 3 brow tines bull WALKED across the road and stood broadside on the other side of the road.
There was a couple of seconds of discussion af he was legal or not, he turned his head and looked right at them. My wife said all she heard was ,"1,2,3, he's legal" Bam! One shot right through the vitals with the Mossberg .308 that I bought him for his 16th birthday this year, and the moose ran 50 yards and piled up 30' off the road.
My wife had to drive a few miles to get cell service so she could send me a text message. Pretty cool to see the message "Moose down need help".
I got dressed and drove the 50 miles in record time to find them already having it half skinned and one quarter off.
Finshed cleaning it and drove to town to hang it. We were all showered and back in bed by 4 am.
Camera batteries were dead because they had been taking pictures of the brown bears from earlier. I will post pics after his wall mount is done.
I just want to say how proud of him I am, we sat down together and watched the Fish & Game video. If you haven't done it already with your kids I highly recommend it. He made a good shot on a good moose and filled our freezer.
