    Talking Two 4 two! Beautiful day to hunt!

    Not much of a prayin' man, but I was prayin' to the powers that be today, ask them first for some more sunshine & lo & behold, the clouds opened up! & then we (my partner & I) went to pick up his brother, a priest, doing an Orthodox conference, in Pilot, & we took another route home, & I said another prayer that we at least see something.

    Well, we get going, pull into the slough of all sloughs that ALWAYS has moose, & there ain't much, lots of sign but no moose, we get outta that slough, & head home & check a coupla meadows, & nothin'! So we head out again, & we round a bend, & on the end of the bend, I see somthin' brown! Nice & brown! I grab my binos, & I see HORNS! I mention to my partner, drivin' the boat, & then tap his brother, & show him, & he gets his gun ready & my partner cuts the engine & the Priest opens up his .270 Win, misses the first shot, hits him the next shot, in the & around the hump & the moose goes down & then puts the last shot on in his ear.

    We set up shop to skin him, I pull out my tarp, & the two brothers sit & eat, & I pull out my lil' 2.5" LST folding Gerber & start skinin' away...I'm half way done, & the driver of the boat comes to help me take the rear leg off, & I can't believe how well this lil' knife is doing! I cut off the leg, & we bag it & put it on the tarp, & cut the front leg off, & I've only sharpened my knife just once, & it's STILL SHARP!

    This 42" three brow tine is PHAT!

    This was & is my only 2nd outtin' this moose season, both day trips & someone's gotten a moose...

    We took pics, & I hope they download them so I can share with you!

    The amazin' thing is that I can't believe how well a lil' 2.5" blade preformed, I'm sure I could've skinned & quartered the whole animal with it.

    Can't wait to get a moose myself!

    OBTW, this is the same preist that married my wife & I back in '02...

    Sounds like you got so many moose that other guys should come there to hunt.

    That knife must be the LST II, eh? Sounds like a decent knife for the money. I see the LST II for around 20 bucks on ebay. Several other models of LST available.
    Lots of good knives out there.

    Gogoalie,
    Hmm, I think this story needs to be investigated as we all know you can't bag a moose with a little ole 270 - impossible!
    Sounds like you are a good luck charm - keep it going! Congrats!

    Ok, I don't like to be wasteful, and it appears y'all are using something I've never used (with the deer and cattle we've done). What the heck do you do with the fatty intestine and the other fat? Sorry, this one is just new too me. Other than grinding the regular fat for burger, sausage, etc, I've not done this stuff!
