I keep a running Word document on units all over the west. I have your notes in there. I appreciate the heads up as I have looked at that unit in the past.
Congrats on your bull. It sounds like you worked your butt off.
Congratulations!! Thats not a bad bull. Unless you hunt around the bighorns now days, the wolves have decimated the moose population. In an area with wolves, its getting rare to see a great bull being taken. Be proud of it. Its looking up om terms of wolf hunting here in Wyoming and hopefully by next year we can hunt them. Nice bull, hope you had a somewhat pleasant trip.
Good job, I'm glad you got to fill your tag. What'd you shoot him with?
Took him with my Remington .300 mag. Dang those things make big holes! Used to bowhunting. I stayed with my moose, field dressing him until 1 AM. Nice cold 25 degree night and no flies. Butcher at Jackson Hole Processing even complimented me on the excellent condition of the meat. Eager to pull out Sunday morning, go pick up my elk in Loveland, and head home.
If you enjoy listening to wolves howl all night, climbing 2 hours in the dark to glass 5 miles and see nothing, talking to elk hunters who saw one shooter bull moose a mile away in a week of hunting, and having between a 2% and snowball chance in hell of taking a shooter bull...........this is the unit for you. Seriously, they need to get some wolf management in unit 20 and shut down all moose hunting before they're extirpated.
I am still very satisfied I put maximum effort into this hunt and am very thankful for my bull.
Only two weeks til prime Illinois deer rut. Got to rest up for that next.
