Came home this afternoon and this young bull was in my driveway i hung around taking a few pictures of him then his mom and sister walked out of the trees. I saw him early this summer and he just had a couple of buttons on the side of his head, looks like he'll be a legal bull next year, they have to have a 50" spread to be legal here.

I shot one like that in Maine about 10 years ago after trailing a bigger bull into a swamp. Unbeknownst to us we followed him into another group of moose and I shot the first one that I could see that had a rack even though it was partially hidden in the hemlocks. I was disappointed at the time but he still weighed 720 lbs dressed and was some of the best eating game meat I've ever had.

Isn't it a bit of a pain having to sneak up on Mr. Moose and take the tape measure to the rack before you can scurry back to your rifle?

:rolleyes:

Thats after you confer with the lawyer you need with you to interpret all of the game laws they have here !! Don't shot a small one and get caught, big fine and they confiscate everything involved with the hunt like 4 wheelers, trucks, planes !!!
