    I got the gun for my son when he turned 10, they shared it for awhile now it's her's, I tried to get another gun for her but she would have nothing to do with it. It is a 7mm-08 both kids have got moose with it.

    The 7mm -08 is a great caliber for youngsters and or smaller framed adults. I've never hunted moose, but their sheer size would seem to indicate something larger. With your kids having put two or more into the freezer it obviously is up to the task. Is that a muzzle break on the end of the barrel or just a flash-hider?

    Moose are wimps, she put both shots in the heart. It is a little light for elk, my son has two goats with it and they have three bears between them. Yes it is a muzzle brake for recoil but my daughter is ready for it to come off. She is slight of frame but tall and stature at 5'11"

    I really like it when hunters daughters take up the torch. Congratulations to her on the moose, and to you for raising her right.

    Congrats to you and your daughter! Our annual moose hunt was always the highlight of my year from the age of 15-40. Haven't been able to go as often in the last 8 years, so love to see some great pics like you posted!

    I hear you on the trailer hub...we lost ours on the boat trailer on the way home from our northern Sask fishing trip. Luckily we were close to civilization, but Jeez, what a pain in the butt!

    I killed one in Ontario a few years back. The scenery was nowhere near as nice as where you're at. I'll have to look into a hunt up that way. Congrats
