Re: Northern Canada Moose Hunt
Good luck on your hunt. I am sure you wont be dissapointed. PLEASE let us know how it went when you return.
I think you have the right idea of putting a bullet in the heart lung area. Esspescialy with 150's. I used to think that moose were not tough and died very easy. For the most part they do. If you take a double lung shot they wont go more than 10-30 yards. If you try to "break em down" I think you will be dissapointed. I put two 200 grain accubonds through my last mooses shoulders and while his whole body shook and he reacted as if he were hit super hard, the only thing that could take him down was 2 more through the lungs. I made the mistake of trying to "anchor" him and it didnt turn out as expected. I have never seen a moose go very far after the double lung shot. Like you said, put one there first, then worry about anchoring him.
Let us know!!
Long range shooting is a process that ends with a result. Once you start to focus on the result (how bad your last shot was, how big the group is going to be, what your buck will score, what your match score is, what place you are in...) then you loose the capacity to focus on the process.
