It took pretty much all day to haul him out (only 400 yards)... and then skin him..... but there is a heap of dinners there. On the hook, there is 684 pounds

I see you can do the "other kind of hunting" too!!

It would take several big white tails to equal the dinners that represents!

Well done Mikie!

What is your hunting weapon of choice for an animal that big?

Regards and Best Wishes,

Takes care of the winter meat for sure. Awesome to have all different types of animals to hunt available. Large game here is deer. Have moose and bear pass thru but not enough to allow hunting of the surplus. Great pictures also....What more could a guy ask for....Nice skid steer, concrete floor with a roof to work in, available game, and friends to help out. Don;t get much better than that. Nice guy cave for the hunter.... Deer season is on here now, but mostly bow right now....Rifle the first of the month..... Got one fella here who got knifed while working for AT&T in Bridgeport, CT...Had enough stab damage that he was allowed to have a crossbow permit to bow hunt with. So he set up his tree stand and will start bow hunting this weekend. He is a rack hunter until the last 2 days, then he is flexiable... The first piece of moose meat I ever ate was a friend I worked with who had been hunting them in New Brunswick. He brought it to work a large plasatic container with these cubed meat...Offered it up, no one took him up on it as they were afraid it might be organs they didn't want to eat....After watching him eat it, I figured it isn't killing him, I'll try it... Really tasty for sure as I reached back for more, but. what am I eating...After all the typical guess work, he told me it was tongue.... Said they tenderize it with the hammer and do it up and so on...Tell ya, I was glad no one wanted to still try it as I was enjoying the feast....
Later in the week we had steaks, burgers etc...Nice tasting animal...
Looks like the perfect ending to hunt.

Congratulations

I have several rifle Cupa.... But I dropped this moose with the 25-06

Some might think that it is a smallish gun for the moose..... but I custom load my own rounds.. So they have a bit of snap.. and I use partition noslers. . and he was only a couple of hundred yards away.. One behind the ear and he was down.

The hook weight is 684 pounds... so that is about 4 or 5 big whities... or three decent mulies. All in all, a lot of eating there.

Ya need help devouring a chunk a meat once in a while call on me Friend!!

That's gotta be fine eatin!

Among the many characters I have known over the years there have been a few who could consistently drop a moose, cariboo or elk with a .22 long rifle, but I wouldn't recommend it!

You had enough gun to "git her done" as some folks say!

Where you put that bullet is the secret to one shot, no suffering, kinda huntin I prefer.

All the best,

CJ

I'm used to something you just sling across your trunk lid to bring home. That's impressive, what did you use to bring him down?

Hi NIm... Used the 25-06... and then there was the pulling him out of the place I shot him....
Posted by: Mikie

Almost 400 yards of sweating, grunting and a lot of colourful language... and the better part of an afternoon to skin him.

all in all, it killed the day. But it was very much worth it. 684 pounds on the hook

Now that's a LOT of moose meat.

Kudoes to you Mikie, a bull moose has got to be one of the most dangerous animals in the woods but they are awfully good eating so long as you don't overcook the meat.

Cheers Mate,

Eric:cool:
