Well, its been countless hours and many, many years of trying and finally I bagged my first moose. I'm almost embarrassed to say that its taken over ten years to reach this point.
Along the way there's been a lot of learning from countless resources, including forums like these. Mostly though there was a lot gained from being in the field year after year and learning from my own mistakes. Patience was the hardest lesson of all.
I am grateful not only for this day but also for the family and friends who helped get the freezer filled. We will thoroughly cherish this every time we sit down to enjoy the harvest.
