    Very good looking moose and thanks for sharing the back story to the harvest. We are all humbled at times, but you can be proud of that one!

Just something else about this moose.
      Must be a Yukon thing. My wife would have killed me had I not brought home the head. She loves the nose, tongue and, yes, the eyes. The meat around the skull makes a good soup. We only left hide and guts, and, in disdain of head hunters, we often left the antlers (didn't target trophy bulls). Never heard of that custom, but maybe it's different up there.

        The nose is normally taken as well. We didn't know how to cut the nose out. We did take the tongue (one of my favorite parts). I never thought about the meat around the head for soup. I do bet that is tasty.

                  The hide over the guts helps protect it from the ravens and makes it nice and smelly for bears. Go back and nail a bear. Two for one deal.
