Re: not an elk

A 685lb moose.......I thought they were bigger than that. So is that the size of a full grown cow moose or would that be a young cow or what? Never been moose hunting but sure would like to one of these days.

By the way congrats! Bet it sure eats good.

Re: not an elk

Nice but how the heck did you manage to get it close to the truck. My first moose hunt in Alaska, Near Healy it took me three days to get the sucker to the boat so I could hall it home.

Nice pictures

Re: not an elk

up in maine there alot of roads you take to get to spots to call and we caught this one on the road and took him. there are alot of moose up here so you can just drive and see them some times but usaly u have to call the big ones in. but in some zone it is alot harder to get them than in others. there are many clear cuts depening on the aera so you can spot them and go after them.
