What is your plan for the antlers?

Euro mount.

One other thing that I should have added. A big, wet moose cape is ridiculously heavy. The taxidermist got this one, but if we had been a distance from the road it would have been a quick and easy decision to leave it for the fox that was circling to chew on. We didn't leave him much else.

Dandy!! Congratulations.
Did you hear if your original #1 bull ever got killed?
No idea. For all we know he could have been killed by a bowhunter in the 12 days between ML and rifle. The rifle hunt is still open. He'd probably come in on a string now to the the Moose Magnet™.

If I reserve the moose magnet now for fall 2023 it’s gotta help my chances of drawing a tag right?

Congrats!

So, what do you think the bull that inspected your kill was thinking?

More importantly, were you thinking this SOB is getting inside knife fighting range and I'm feeling a wee bit vulnerable?

Great stuff, thanks.
