    My wife made a perfect shot today on this fabulous Moose. She was with my Dad & the kids when they called him in. I was in another location calling also. I heard the shot & knew we were in for a good day. I couldn't get over to them fast enough I was so excited.

    Believe it or not, they had the caller on the roof of the truck, the kids were screaming & this big boy still came in to see what was going on. My wife made a perfect front shoulder shot with her little 308 Sako & 180gr Federal power point. One shot is all it took, it fell right where it stood.

    I am very proud & excited for my wife. He is going to taste good this winter :)

    Here is the recovered bullet. 159gr left. I should have cleaned it up a bit better, but for sure that old power point has over 150gr retained in it. No complaints here.

    I think this was much better than turkey! Enjoy. :D

    CONGRATULATIONS!!!
    That is a really cool story, a bull moose coming to a call, while the kids are screaming and being capable of making the kill. Enjoy it a lot, and thanks for posting and sharing the story.

    Great story. Thanks for sharing.

    I thought the stick next to the antler was a broken point.
