Anyone ever take a moose with a bow ? Either AK or the Lower 48. I've taken one and it went 25-30 yards and KEELED over .... Just wondering anyone elses experience ?!?!?

I killed one a few years ago with my bow. It was the middle of December, 10 below and blowin' when I shot him. My arrow hit ribs going in and out, but only the feathers were showing, and the arrow was sticking out the other side. When he got hit he took off at a dead run, the first and only time I've ever seen that happen. He made it about 50 yards, but he died like standing up in the waste-deep snow. A liitle Alaska winter fun.

Thanx for the Story bro !!! I thought the Season wass Short there, was that a draw or is it only short for the NON-RES ?

YOU bet~ya on the BEER !! I'm gonig to make a formal Anouncement to ANYONE in the Area that wants a free beer the day we fly in. I actually get there around 11:45 AM Friday the 5th morning.. DAD doesn't arive till 2:30PM a few hours later, Interested in lunch ? I'm guessning you'll be working, But if not, We can Chat over lunch.

I'm swiftly driving out after DAD gets there, then we're overnghting it back in Soldatna after our orientation.. THEN we're flying early Sat morning.. WE won't come out the bush till 16 days later

The hunt I was on was a draw on Fort Richardson here in Anchorage. The pictures I took turned out crappy. I think the film was frozen or something.
