Good looking bull, good access, 29 year wait, no need to hold out more than 8 minutes.

Re: 8 minute Maine moose

Congratulations on your bull! I'm from central Maine, about 15 minutes south of Newport in the very small town of Troy. I know a lot of people who, like you, had waited a long time to finally get drawn. I also know people who seem to go on a moose hunt every other year. The way most people hunt moose in Maine isn't very challenging (driving down the logging roads until you spot one) but when you find a big bull like yours, it sure makes one hell of a trophy. It's definitely a "once in a lifetime" hunt for a lot of people. Glad to see you got your shot, and tagged out!
