It might also depend on how the terrain and foliage is in your hunting area. It is amazing how well those big animals can hide and how hard it is to quarter them up when they run and fall into a creek. A couple years ago I had one run about 20 yards and die in the middle of deadfall. That was a pain to take care of.

Moose are generally pretty easy to kill compared to some other animals but they can be a lot of work to take care of once they are down. If you're not prepared they can be intimidating to take care of on flat ground. It pays to know the terrain you're hunting and to be prepared for any situation. For long range shooting you need to locate plenty of land marks because everything will look different once you get close to the kill site.

I remember my first moose. All I had was my atv to get it back to my truck 6 miles away through some pretty bad stuff. Shortly thereafter I built a meat wagon and never looked back.

I've been hunting since before the 3 wheeler and 4 wheelers were around and doing it with buggies for a lot of years. About 15 or 16 years ago we figured out that we could pick up a whole moose and take it to where ever we wanted to, to take care of the skinning and gutting.
