    My eldest boy's first moose

    My oldest son Wyatt earned his hunter safety card this summer at age 13. The deal was he get his hunter safety card & I'll take him moose hunting. I called this bull in on the 4th day of the hunt. Wyatt shot him throught the heart at a whopping 35 yards as the bull was thrashing the alders and grunting. Wyatt was shooting my kimber 7-08 with some of my hand loads 160gr speer mag tip bullets. Bull ran 40 yards & died. It is much more exciting to see him harvest a critter than me pulling the trigger. Pure excitement !! I was all jazzed up, jumping up & down and Wyatt telling me to controll myself. I am one proud daddy
