    My annual moose hunt to Northern British Columbia , Canada, about 500 km north of Mackenzie BC.
    Chased grizz, caribou, and goats but this was all we brought home. 300g Nosler Partition , from a 375 H&H. chip shot at 170 yards.
    cheers

    Congratulations! That should fill the freezer. Did you pack it out by boat? Or did you have a more difficult job going over land?

    By Boat, bought a new welded aluminum last year, made the process very "gentlemanly" lol. Last year it took four days to back my animal out, trying to get wiser.

    Hi All since there is some interest. It dropped to about -12C the next day.

    There were three of us, one first time moose hunter, he fired the first shot with a 308; then a 375 to make sure he did wander off in the bush too far. We credit the New Hunter with the Moose.

    Hunting smarter is always good, especially where moose are concerned. Even one with a short pack out can take considerable time. This one looks like a piece of cake on the lake shore. Gotta be prepared to take one apart if your gonna pack them. Big critters. Congrats.

    I love moose hunting. Very well done! Mine was a bust this year, so I just may be a tad jealous....

    One of the funniest lines I ever heard about moose hunting:

    Beginner: Where's the best place to shoot a moose?

    Expert, old timer: Close to a fork lift.
